Comic Court to be remembered in historic photographic display

Legendary racehorse Comic Court, winner of the 1950 Melbourne Cup, is to be remembered in an Historic Photographic Display at the Normanville Hotel during South Australian history month - from 1 to 31 May 2018.

The Comic Court Lodge Historic Photographic Display will be on show at the Normanville Hotel on the Fleurieu Peninsula all through History Month – from 1 to 31 May 2018 – in South Australia.

The aim of the display is to raise awareness of the original home of Comic Court and the remains of the Heritage-Listed former Fergussons flour mill building at Normanville which stabled the famous racehorse, its parents Powerscourt and Witty Maid, together with several other racehorses bred by the Bowyer brothers Melville and Hiram, and later trained by the legendary Bart Cummings.

The property is now owned by racehorse trainer Dennis O’Leary and his wife Karen who also runs High Country Trails horse rides. It is envisaged to raise sufficient funds to eventually restore the former mill building to house a horseracing and equine museum.
