Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

ONCE more the drums are beat­ing with tales tall and true of life in the balmy trop­ics . . . Speak­ing of names, Co­conut knows he speaks for the whole shire when he says how proud he is of that fine horse flesh that is the name­sake of our two great towns, Port Dou­glas and Moss­man. The for­mer is a nag run­ning around in the UK and oc­ca­sion­ally does al­right for it­self. You good thing. In Aus­tralia we have a fine horse called Moss­man. He was born in 1995 and won a mil­lion bucks from 22 starts. In other words the own­ers are just about break­ing even on the hay. These days he is “at stud” as it were and is the sire of, among oth­ers, Miss Moss­man, which up till now Co­conut had as­sumed was a beauty pageant or sim­i­lar back in the day in the real Moss­man. It’s re­ally con­fus­ing.
