Prunda racehorse Ipswich Cup winner

Prunda racehorseRacehorse Prunda was foaled in 1959 being by Pan II out of the mare Boxilla and went on to become "the peoples' champion" in Queensland where he did all of his racing.

His name supposedly was derived from the Aboriginal word meaning 'big fella'.

In nearly 120 starts he won 31 times and amassed prizemoney of about $80000 - a small fortune back in the 1960's

In the picture (left) he is being ridden by Lester Piggott in the 10 furlong Doomben International in 1969 which was his last race beating Desert Glance and Galleon King.

In Group races he ran 2nd in the 1963 Stradbroke behind Mullala and third in the 1962 Queensland Derby.

One of his main wins was in the 1966 Ipswich Cup.

He won other features such as the Summer Cup, Doomben Stakes, Albion Park 2000, Tattersall’s President’s Cup, Doomben Cup, Autumn Stakes (twice), ITC Shorts and Ross Stakes.

Interesting sidelight: (pardon the pun) Prunda was allegedly blind in one eye after an accident with a tree branch when he was being broken in!
