The Tasmanian Racing Hall Of Fame continued to recognise the stars of a bygone era at the annual presentation dinner in Launceston on Friday night.
The 2019 inductions included 1870 Melbourne Cup winner Nimblefoot and leading trainer of the late 1800s/early 1900s William Clare.
Nimblefoot was bred by John Lord of York Plains and did his early racing here before being sold to Victoria.
He ran in four Melbourne Cups and the story surrounding his 1870 win is one of the most unusual in Australian turf history.
William Clare trained from 1881 until his death in 1929.
He won six Hobart Cups and nine Launceston Cups and historians rate him the most successful trainer in Tasmanian racing history.
A highlight of the night was the induction of two great mates, Longford trainer Bill Ryan and former jockey, trainer and administrator Ron Riley.
