Very soon we will see 113 bronze plaques embedded in the pathways of Kelly Street, Scone. These are the culmination of several years planning, cajoling and prodding. The categories of famous horses are summarised thus:

Although this project has been many years in the making the following have contributed most significantly to eventual delivery in its current format. These include most importantly Jill Macintyre** and Peter Haydon***. Others were Julianne Christopher (HTBA), Steve Guihot (ASHS) and latterly Andrew Cooper** (ASHS), Alan Fletcher, David Gatwood, Belinda Oltenue and Tracey Warner (all UHSC). Chloe Leake (***) and Allan Greer (both UHSC) have been outstanding in driving the concept to fruition.

Legends Myths & Fantasies

The title is apposite. This ‘post’ fits all three categories, but it’s been on my agenda for a long time. It’s something that has been gnawing away in my psyche and refuses to go away. I started with the concept of a ‘Hall of Fame’. The notion bounced back meekly however, whenever and wherever I tried to purvey it. This is yet another attempt!



Following implementation of the Scone Bypass post-2020 the opportunity presents to establish a Horse Heritage Precinct embracing the Kelly Street corridor in its entirety or in especially designated zones or sectors. The UHSC Kelly Street Revitalisation Committee is the delegated revue agency.

“This sculpture (Mare & Foal) identifies Scone and the Upper Hunter Valley as the Horse Breeding Centre of Australia. It commemorates the role horses have played in the development of Australia and is a tribute to one of mankind’s greatest friends”.


“Clarity of vision and unity of purpose”

Establish a ‘Horse Heritage Precinct’ to record, honour, display and preserve the outstanding contributions made to horse production (breeding and racing) by exceptional individuals, families, Studs and teams throughout the history of our community and country. The ‘Horse Heritage Precinct’ will also celebrate the emblematic status and historic significance of the region as one of the great horse and thoroughbred producing areas of the world. It will both augment and strengthen Scone’s image as a totemic tourism destination.

Dear Sir/Alan

I refer to your letter re. SCONE HORSE WALK OF FAME – NOMINATION FOR PAST AND CURRENT CHAMPIONS as designated above.

I write as an elected/appointed charter member of the Walk of Fame Sub-Committee.

Scone and the Upper Hunter have at least three areas of traditional excellence. These are:

(1) Thoroughbred Breeding (plus Country Racing),

(2) Australian Stock Horse Society (‘Walers’) and affiliated activities

(3) Polo in Australia.

These equine sports should be acknowledged with majority representation in a genuine WALK OF FAME and not share billing with the meretricious latecomer societies or selections. The latter could be listed on an honour board such as in the Scone Visitor Information Centre or the Scone Race Club Cup Winners in the Thoroughbred Hotel. The Scone Horse Festival ‘emerged’ from the Scone Thoroughbred Week some 40 years ago.
