30/07/02 Hall of Fame Trainer Inductee: Angus Armanasco

A former jockey and legendary trainer Angus Armanasco as expected was tonight inducted into the Australian Racing Hall of Fame in Melbourne.

After a highly successful career as a jockey in Perth, Angus Armanasco was to leave his mark on racing as an outstanding trainer in Victoria over many decades.

As the Melbourne trainer for Stanley Wootton, Angus had considerable success with the Star Kingdom line with horses such as Biscay, Bletchingly, The Judge, True Version and Zeditave.

He won the Victorian Trainers' Premiership seven times and his big race wins included three Blue Diamond Stakes (Tolerance, Forina and Zeditave) and a Golden Slipper (Full on Aces).

He retired in 1998 and is honoured by the running of the Group 2 Angus Armanasco Stakes at Caulfield during the autumn.
