Fun the dog who finished runner-up to Dolores Rocket in the 1971 English Derby.
His victories included Wembley´s Select Stakes, the Edinburgh Cup and the Olympic over
600 yards at Carlton where he smashed the course record. Supreme Fun was the classically
bred dog being by probably the greatest dual purpose sire of all time Newdown Heather
(also sire of Dolores Rocket).
Supreme Fun´s dam was the great Top Note. Trained by Jack McAllister, she won the Irwin
Cup at Lifford and broke the 525 yard track record.
In stud he threw Laurdella Fun who was
champion sire for three successive years in New South Wales and Queensland and died after
making over a quarter of a million Australian dollars in stud fees.
The lines are of equal interest to Australian breeders because Laurdella Fun´s brother
Waverly Supreme, a former Shelbourne 750 track record holder, was one of the outstanding
stud dogs seen Down Under in the last 20 years.
