Hes by Art Official out of Holly Robyn, a Live Or Die mare out of Robyns Treasure.
Salty Robyn has won sixteen races in Australia and 4,705 and paced a mile in 1-49.2.
The rest have been no bloody good but often it comes through in the next generation.
Old Davey Todd used to duck shoot over home with my grandfather. He was a good old bugger old Davey and you used to get a whole lot of good stories out of him when you were kids. I was working in the boning room at Makarewa in those days. Murray Brown, Andy Laidlaw, Ron Mc Ewan and Donny Mc Rae, and all those guys. When the dairy boom happened it made it all worthwhile. I worked through that era and I thought I was going to get out earlier but then something would go wrong and I had to stay another few years.
Ron said hed been down at Ascot Stud and looked at a horse by Majestic Chance and he thought there was one there that I should buy. He (Grant) was only a young lad then and so was I both in our twenties. When the dairy boom happened, property was worth a dollar and we had a bit of equity.
Wilson and Edgar have both named horses after each other.
Stanley Ross Robyn named after Ross won two races for Hamish Hunter before being exported to Australia where hes won another four.
