The Poseidon Adventure & Sir Hugh Denison

Ian Ibbett does it best! I’m merely the conduit to the original source. The story of Hugh Dixson, ‘Mr U R Robertson’ and Hugh Denison (later Sir Hugh Denison) and ‘Poseidon’ is a fascinating one. It brings together so many elements of early thoroughbred racing and breeding in the Hunter Valley including the Dangar family of ‘Neotsfield’, Singleton. The ‘Poseidon’ adventure is a tangled web of speculative intrigue to say the least!
Sir Hugh Denison later owned the Sledmere Stud at Scone in partnership with Mr H G Raymond before the latter relocated to St Albans, Geelong. However I’m ‘jumping the gun’; and not for the first time! Ian Ibbett relates the exquisite detail in his inimitable prose.
