It’s 15 days to the New Zealand Cup.

From now to November 10 we will feature some of the great races, horses and personalities  with a new letter for each day.

L = Lord Module

Lord Module in 1979 was Cecil Devine’s 19th and last Cup drive. A winner of the great race 6 times (1951-79) Devine had reached the compulsory driving retirement age of 65.

After missing away Lord Module was wide at the turn and charged home out of the ruck to win in 4:09.It was widely acknowledged as one of the greatest Cup runs ever.

His sire Lordship won the Cup twice in 1962/66 as did his sire Johnny Globe in 1954.
