Smaill has been a farmer most of his life, spending eight years at Clydevale from 1968 before moving to Glenlapa (in Northern Southland) in 1976 where he bred and reared sheep and cattle. When we were there wed bought a property down the valley just next door to us. It was back in the days when you looked at diversifying your property the best you could.

He wasnt a real natural as a youngster but Alex keeps telling me that he (Jaccka Jeorge) will be a young horse. Hes the oldest of the Andover Halls and Im looking forward to getting my hands on him.

In the early days Smaill also raced Popsicle (Surmo Hanover Classic Artist) which won ten races. We had a lot of fun with him and he was such a nice horse to have around.

He was good enough to finish second behind Honkin Vision in the 1989 New Zealand Kindergarten Stakes. His best season was as a four year old when he won six races. He ended up in Canada in one of those heated barns.
