Menangle Park comes alive next Sunday with 36 mini trotters invited to participate at the Fisher Ghost meeting.
Ponies from different affiliated NSW clubs qualified for a start at the meeting from our NSW Championships.
Some ponies and drivers will be making their first appearance at the venue and excitement is sure to be high on the day.
WHAT IS FISHERS GHOST?
On 17 June 1826 an English-born Australian farmer from Campbelltown named Frederick Fisher (born 28 August 1792 in London) suddenly disappeared. His friend and neighbour George Worrall claimed that Fisher had returned to England, and that before departing had given him power of attorney over his property and general affairs. Later, Worrall claimed that Fisher had written to him to advise that he was not intending to return to Australia, and giving his farm to Worrall.
Four months after Fisher's disappearance a respectable local man named John Farley, ran into the local hotel in a very agitated state. He told the astonished patrons that he had seen the ghost of Fred Fisher sitting on the rail of a nearby bridge. Farley related that the ghost had not spoken, but had merely pointed to a paddock beyond the creek, before disappearing.
