Eyes & Ears of the Turf PARS ABOUT DOWN-THELINE MEN AND HORSES EL GOLEA TO TACKLE AJEX [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 25 August 1939
Eyes & Ears of the Turf PARS ABOUT DOWN-THE LINE MEN AND HORSES (By METEOR) EL GOLEA TO TACKLE AJAX It seems a rather optimistic opinion, but there are some racing folk at M?entone who consider that El Golea has' a good chance of beating Ajax in the Underwood Stakes at Williams town on Saturday.
