brilliant Melbourne horse trainer Fred Hoysted was tonight inducted into the Australian
Racing Hall of Fame in the city he once dominated.
Fred Hoysted's record is unprecedented in Victorian training
history. He won a record 17 Trainers' Premierships between 1933 and 1958 including 20
individual two-year-old winners in 1953/54.
Hoysted trained the great Rising Fast to win the 1955 Caulfield Cup and
showed his versatility by training the winners of two Grand National Steeplechases.
In recent years he was honoured with the introduction of the Fred
Hoysted Award which is presented each year to Victoria's outstanding trainer.
Hoysted died in 1967.
