    I first followed Octagonal throughout his career, and i admit i had teardrops his last two career races….I did the same thing with Lonhro……that is how magnificent, amazing, and touching these two heroes have been…….and i don’t even live in Australia, ….i’m in Papua New Guinea……..LONG LIVE THE BLOODLINE and we are waiting patiently….for the next HEROE!!…….

    But for now we need these DVDs to give us that hope for that anguishing wait and for us to relinguish..”lest we forget”…..what is wrong with racing Australia, they just can’t admit that these two where the obvious crowd favourites of all time……..can we have or order these videos of these true champions??

    agree re the comments on lack of racing dvds – a real shame.. lonhro was a great horse and is deserving of his own dvd.. maybe they could make another champions of the turf for that golden period late 90’s early 2000’s when sunline ran supreme.. northerly.. the diva. or am i being ignorant does this already exist?

    @ Josh thanks for visiting my site man! Unfortuantely I don’t think there is a dvd of Lonhro’s races – not that i could find anyway… i just got these videos of Lonhro off youtube. I guess maybe you could contact Woodlands Stud http://www.woodlandsstud.com as they might be the only ones.

    I tell you there is a severe lack of availability of Australian horse racing videos around; Im not sure if its due to Sky Racing having the license for it or not?

    Let me know if you have any luck.
