In the 70s there was a trots trainer/driver in the Mooroolbark-Wantirna area of Melbourne who changed his name from Richard Head to Richard Cranium, or vice-versa? about the time DH became popular.

Cheers, Loges.

Pistol Knight = Knight Pistol. The owners tried for PK but when refused they went for KP - what a super trotter he was.
The footage of Hoof Hearted is quite good to listen to - he races away towards the line & the caller is not making much effort to differentiate the 2 words & you end up with "& it's Who Farted, Who Farted - blows them away". Just made those last 3 words up, but still good listening.

Don't you reckon Smark bears a kind of resemblence to Ronny Hawkswell. Afterall, he knows the difference between Nancy Stitz, and Norma Stitz.
Good on you Ron. Best damn greyhound caller of them all.

You're right Smark.

I must fancy Nancy's more.

Gary, I have done my homework....

FAR CALL (AUS) 1970 chestnut mare by Princelone from Signal Echo. Died 27/03/1980
She had three foals Squires valentine, Higher Power and Distant Echo.

The name is probably a play on the 'sonar' connotations of her dam Signal Echo who was not a success at stud. They had high hopes but she produced Far Call.

A funny one I remember was Pistol Knight who used to run in Adelaide.

There was also a horse who ran in Victoria called Shatedin or something like that, can't remember the spelling but can definitely remember hearing the call!

I'm not sure if the moderator let my previous post through, so I'll repeat the gist of it.
There use to be a stayer called Far Cue racing in SA. That part is true - but whether a horse called Far Cough was an offspring, I don't know.

I know this is not a horses name, but early this year there was a Greyhound getting around called Nancy Stitz.

In Ron Hawkswell's pre race rundown he declared to fancy "Nancy Stitz", at the boxes before race start the Hawk said "there was plenty of support for Nancy Stitz" and of course when the lids lifted "Nancy Stitz bounced out"

I think the hound won the race, GRV made the owners change the name.

Far Call or Phar Call was told to me when I was a teenager and I still get a laugh out of it.
I have a feeling it was Ron Papps who was supposed to have said it, would be interesting to see if it is true.

Can't remember if it was a horse or a greyhound, but one of my favourites has always been "Kangaroo Edward"

Tonto, Far Call would have as much chance of getting registration as Far Cough and Far Cue!
(Hmm, come to think of it, I can recall a stayer called Far Cue racing in SA about a decade ago).

I checked "Hoof Hearted" and it has never been registered with the Studbook in Oz, but it is 'available for consideration'.
The Studbook says "A name which is available for consideration will be checked when the horse is registered to ensure it is free of implications arising from commercialism, phonetic similarities, political correctness or politeness."
Someone should try to register it. What sort of chance do you reckon ? Far Call ?

Tonto I don't know if the're fair dinkum.I think the horse may have been call Hoof Hearted.
Someone mentioned another one today L'Gopna.
Any one I've told about Phar call has easily got the biggest laugh.
Cheers
