Tullmax racehorse George Main Stakes winner

Tullmax racehorseracehorse Tullmax was one of those horses that comes along from time to time and really captures the racing public's imagination.

He never won a major cup or big name sprint race but was enormously successful around the provincial circuit and when he came "to town".

He had been tried without success in the "big smoke" early in his career and finally passed in to the leased ownership of Col Doulman and Jack Cantrill from the Molong district and was trained by local postman Trevor Doulman around the Molong Golf Course.

In his first 16 starts for the new owners, Tullmax went from easily winning a maiden at Parkes to notching up 13 wins from his next 16 starts together with a second and a third, not to mention a fourth in the Epsom Handicap at Randwick.

The key to his improvement was in being cured of a major scouring problem through a "secret recipe" of clay and apples - the recipe being provided by noted Molong horseman, the late Les Thomas.

His best win was in the 1980 George Main Stakes at Randwick from West Australian champion Marjoleo and Bart Cummings-trained AJC Derby winner Belmura Lad.

Another great win was in the 1980 Tramway Handicap when he defeated the T J Smith trained Iko by a nose in a stirring finish.

Following retirement, Tullmax staged an exhibition gallop at Bedgerabong picnic races and thousands of racegoers, 10 deep along the running rail, cheered the bush champion for the length of the straight.

Tullmax died in 2001 at age 27.
