Jockey: B Carslake

b-carslakeStarting favourite in the 1934 Oaks, Light Brocade, owned by Lord Durham, won comfortably in the hands of “Brownie” Carslake. He is one of the finest jockeys Australia has given us, and although now in the veteran stage, can always be relied upon to get the best out of his mounts.

He rode three brilliant races when winning on Mr. J. B. Joel’s Snooker in 1935. He has won two St Ledgers-on Keysoe, 1919 and Salmon Trout, 1924, the 2000 Guineas (1920) on Tetratema, and also the 1921 Lincoln Handicap on Soranus, and the Cambridgshire on Twelve Pointer in 1924.
