1. List: A - Powell, Joseph - Horseracing
    A - Powell, Joseph - Horseracing thumbnail image
    Public

    These items were used to form the basis of a submission to have Joseph (Joe) Powell inducted into the Tasmanian Thoroughbred Racing Hall of Fame in 2015.
    Joe Powell (aka "The Village Blacksmith") was a prominent owner, trainer and (occasional) jockey from about 1875-1915. He raced horses on most of the many racecourses which existed in Tasmania at that time and won the major race held at most of them. He won the Launceston Cup and was placed second in the Hobart Cup on 2 occasions. He trained Sheet Anchor the year before it won the Melbourne Cup, Silvermine the year before it ran placings in the Melbourne and Caulfield Cups, and Blink Bonney before it won the Caulfield Cup The list is basically chronological but anyone interested should also refer to an obituary in The Weekly Courier of 4th March 1915 which is not on Trove but can be found at the Tasmanian LINC site. Powell also trained horses which won races in Victoria and was the leading Tasmanian trainer on occasions. He was particularly noted for his ability with jumpers and hurdlers. NOTE Since initially compiling this list I have added other items which require further correction and may not follow chronologically yet. I intend to fix these over time, and am including these and other information in a supplement I am producing as I do so. [Happy to give information on my HOF experiences as I have found them to be a tricky lot to work with]

    Early report on his death --The veteran trainer Joe Powell passed away last night, after a lengthy illness that supervened on an accident that happened to him on the training tracks at
    Mowbray some time ago, when he sustained a serious fall from his horse, and was picked up in an unconscious condition. Of the many racehorse trainers in Tasmania, the deceased was perhaps one of the best known. He had a lengthy, although at times somewhat checkered, career on the turf. Prior to removing to his late quarters at Invermay, he presided over an establishment at Evandale, where he was generally respected
    among sportsmen. Joe Powell will ever be remembered as a good sport, a lover of a good horse, a fearless rider, not
    only of gallopers, but of trotters also, and those who met him on the running track in his younger days knew that as a pedestrian he was possessed of a rare turn of speed, and his laurels were numerous. The late Joe Powell has led in many winners on Tasmanian courses, and all followers of the sport will regret his passage to the unknown beyond.

Meander, who has nearly always been ridden by Stebbings- a careful and painstaking rider-has been a fortunate horse, winning no less than seven races in succession, and has proved himself to be a good one, although his races have hitherto been flyers. --3rd meeting of the Club. -- Cervus won Hurdle.

    The Hurdle Race opened the ball, and brought out a greeted field of five. Cervus was installed the favourite, and he stripped by some pounds the fittest horse of the quintette, while Peter Funk, a strapping and useful looking son of Castle Hill, who is bound to see a better day, was next in demand. Cervus, who was well handled by his rider and trainer, Joseph.Powell, justified the confidence of his admirers, and he shaped in a much better style over the sticks than he did at Colebrook, as he hardly rapped one on Saturday...... The great event, the Green Ponds Cup, attracted a field of eight to the post, and Meander held the pride of place in the quotations, while Queen was next fancied. The favourite stripped well, though a trifle off, but the spell was destined to be broken at last, and after scoring seven victories off the reel he was on Saturday last defeated for the first time since he came under Powell's care.

    Has a quote about win with Cervus and also mentions King Arthur to go into the Village Blacksmiths string. ----Powell is well deserving of mention, for he steered the winner in good style, and the horse jumped better than he did at Colebrook. He has only had Cervus but a very short time, and to teach him to jump as well as he has done, and bring him to the post in the condition that he was, stamps the Village Blacksmith as a rising man in his new profession......King Arthur, I understand, is likely to join the Village Blacksmith's string, and though I am doubtful whether this ill-used colt will ever stand a thorough preparation I am confident that Joseph will
    effect a great improvement.

    The two finished the race, which was not a very interesting one, as neither of them jumped well. Cup Day, however, seemed to have most heart, if not condition, and landed the stakes. The winner is by Castle Hill, out of young Lubra, and is owned by Mr. Joseph Powell, of Evandale.

    Pocahontas in Joseph Powell's stable was most fancied, but the winner turned up in Opposition, ... The Carrick Plate created much excitement, and Guy Faux was the only absentee. Taking the seven altogether they wore a remarkably good-looking lot, and Sheet Anchor was a firm favourite, though speculation on this (as was the case with the other events during the day) was by no means animated. Sheet Anchor proved that there was no mistake made, as he won very easily from Hobart at the finish in seven seconds less time than when Stockwell won so easily last year. Sheet Anchor then, it will be remembered, ran second. The winner, though nominated by Powell, is the property of Mr. Charles Field, one of the beet sportsmen in the land, and who races simply for the sake of sport. Sheet Anchor was bred by Mr. John Field, and is by St. Albans, out of Queen Mary by Castle Hill. The win, like most of the wins, was very popular, and Powell deserves credit for the manner in which he sent his horse to the post. The Evandale stable again supplied the favourite for the Two-Year-Old in Caramut, but turning restive, he lost several lengths at the post. Meteor proved the winner, and he shaped in such a style that it is by no means certain the verdict would have been reversed if Caramut had got away all right. Meteor was bred by Mr. John Field, and is by St. Albans, out of a Middleton mare,..... Evandale was once more to the front in the Steeplechase, as Morven won with ridiculous ease, and thus brought off a double and first Hurdle and Steeple for that popular sportsman, Mr Charles Ralston, whose successes are always welcome. The horse, more over, was judiciously steered in each instance by Mr. Walter Gatenby, while it would be an injustice not to say a word in favour of Powell, whose stable nearly monopolised the honours of the day. -there is an identical report in The Tasmanian of 30th December

    A match for £20 aside, between Mr. Joseph Powell's , Cup Day and Mr. W. Jones's Sportsman, took place on Mowbray Racecourse on Saturday after- noon, and considering the unpropitious weather the attendance far surpassed ex pectation. The distance was one mile, and Cup Day had to carry 1Ost, and his antagonist 9st. The going was, of course, heavy. Cup Day, who had the advantage in condition, was the favourite with odds on him, and rightly as it proved, for he won easily enough. Cup Day jumped off at score, but allowed the other to lead him slightly at the back of the course, and though they raced together for some time, Cup Day led into the straight and won without the semblance of a struggle by about three lengths. The winner was ridden by T. Keating, and Sportsman by Kilby, while Mr. Walter Harris officiated as judge, and Mr. Thos. Hardman as starter. The time was 2mini 5¼ |sec. The match last Saturday was a very tame affair, and Cup Day had the advantage in every shape— condition; looks, and riding. When the horses stripped it was a guinea to the proverbial gooseberry on the Evandale representa tive. The match, however, was instructive, as it proved what a good afternoon's sport might be provided at Mowbray on a Saturday. If about a couple of hundred persons braved the very inclement weather of last Saturday to see one uninteresting match a nice little programme of four or five races on a fine afternoon ought to attract a couple of thousand.

    Western has been the hero of the Evandale and Campbell Town meets, and this cast-off from a Victorian stable has been distinguishing himself greatly. He accomplished a sterling performance at Evandale, when he easily smashed up The Knave and won the handicap in fast time. The penalty did not stop him at Campbell Town, and he won as he liked. There is no doubt about him being the best horse in Tasmania, and he is improving' daily. It is no small feather in Powell's cap that he should have won so many races with this £49 cast off, and it is a bit of bad luck that he did not. have him in the same form at the Launceston Cup Meeting. He was then receiving weight from the Knave, while at Campbell, Town, he gave the latter a stone and a half, and a very easy beating. (Sup)

    Neither in quality nor in quantity was the field for the Hunters' Stakes commensurate with the prize given by the club. One principal steeplechase stable was unrepresented in consequence of being dissatisfied with the weights allotted the horses, which, it might be mentioned, were purposely raised to allow of gentleman riders occupying the saddle. Only three horses sported the colours, Tower Hill, who won the cross country event at Colebrook, with his trainer, Joe Powell, in the pigskin; Westminster, with Mr. John Smith up ; and Comet, with P. Keating as rider. Westminster of the trio escaped the extra 71b. for service of non-professionals. Tower Hill, jumped his leading fences the reverse of; artistically, but he made no serious mistake until he was negotiating the obstacle opposite the sheds on the Glenorchy side of the course, which he struck, and the force of the collision jerked Powell out of his seat. Both touched earth, and the rider narrowly escaped serious injury. The horse got away, and his jockey did not secure him until the other competitors were half a mile further on their journey. Westminster rapped the fence opposite the saddling paddock pretty heavily, and Mr. Smith made a good recovery. The pair in the race kept each other company at an easy pace, though it was evident that bar accident Comet would win, which he did, yet he and his antagonist had had enough when they passed the judge's chair. Westminster is a son of Horatio, but the winner's pedigree is not accurately known. Comet was chosen by the squire of Enfield as a suitable hunter for his son, Mr. W. V. Field, who hunted the horse through the season, and the popular squire would be proud to hear of his victory. The winner was put into work earlier than his opponent, who, however, did not perform discreditably, though it is almost certain Tower Hill would have beaten the others had he stood up.

It is just 22 years ago since the first Toryboy won his Melbourne Cup when, old sports will remember, Panic gave him such a chasing home. His namesake hopes history will repeat itself and that the Manuka youngster will win a Melbourne Cup before he dies. That is the most l wish him. Speaking of Mr Jos. Powell's stable reminds me that he has had lately a couple of promising racers added to his string which is now one of the most complete in the island. One is Cenobite, by Lapidist — Pussy, winner of the Flying Handicap at Westbury, and the Trial Stakes at Sorell ;and Nineveh, by the Assyrian dam, Maid of Honor. (Sup)

    SPORTING INTELLIGENCE. The Tasmanian steeplechaser, Sir Wilfred, has quickly proved his ability to hold his own with the tip-top company of Australasia, and on Saturday last his followers were gratified by his easy victory in the Caulfield Grand National Steeple, That the win was a meri torious one, no one can gainsay, and the trainer, Joseph Powell, will be deservedly com plimented on the thorough preparation the horse must have been subjected to to enable him to win a four-mile race. Sir Wilfred has proved himself a long way the best steeplechaser of his day in this colony. Knowing his worth he has been wisely kept for a big race, and the good judgment of those behind Sir Wilfred has been proved by Saturday's running. He is by King Arthur (a son of Horatio) from a mare by Phantom from Denmark's dam, and was bred by Mr W, A. Kermode, of Mona Vale, and is now nine years old. He made his first appearance at Oatlands, in September, 1886, but failed to score a win. At the Launceston Spring Meeting in the following October, he won the Hunt Club Steeple. Altogether be has started forty times in Tasmania, proving victorious on 14 occasions. He was trained for the greater part of the season 1886-7 by George Law, and since then be has been under Joseph Powell's care. His last victory in this colony was at Campbell Town in October last, when he had a desperate finish with Bothwell. The win on Saturday is all the more creditable because he was by no meant favored in weight. Sir Wilfred is owned by the Messrs. Pitt, of the Midland district. (sup)

    The few Tasmanians present swore by their countryman, Sir Wilfred, one of the best-looking horses in the paddock; but though he had the services of Corrigan, the Victorian public did not take kindly to the horse, because it was thought that he was not quite fit enough to run through a severe four-miles race, but the result proved that Joe Powell had done the horse every justice. ... Mr.J. Powell, who represented the owner and trained the horse, also came in for his share of congratulations from the Tasmanians. (sup)

    Joe Powell, Sir Wilfred's former mentor, was in great form at tho recent Longford meeting, where he won the principal double with Jack in the Green, the Hurdle Race with Highlander and the Steeplechase by the aid of Ouida. Powell has a string of 16 horses in training, and as there are some good ones amongst them, the Evandale trainer promises to be hard to beat at the big meetings which constitute the "Tasmanian fortnight." Jack in the Green is a horse of whom I have always had a good word to say in these columns. He favorably impressed me when I first saw him as a 2-year-old, and now that he has finished growing and commenced to fine down I am not at all surprised to know that he is beginning to develop racing form. He is a remarkably finne stamp of a horse, and provided his fetlocks — which are not of the best — don't give way, I think Powell will win a good race with the son of The Assyrian and May Queen before the end of the season.

    Sir Wilfred since his arrival in Victoria has had a brilliant career as he won at Caulfield at the first time of asking, and also at Flemington, over which country he made his first public journey to-day. It is need-less to descant upon his Tasmanian triumphs as they have been so recently reviewed, but it must be now still more dis-appointing to his ex-trainer, Joe Powell, that his favourite horse should have been allowed to go for the small sum of £350. Mr Miller certainly got a bargain, but there is one satisfaction that the horse has gone into good hands, and we may expect yet, even although he will have to carry a great weight, to see him win another good race.

    The other day I had a look over Joe Powell's stables. The well-known Evandale trainer undoubtedly has his equines in first class fettle, but that is one of Joe's peculiarities Papapa looks splendidly, while Jack -in –the Green, Fassifern, Silvercord, Ouida and others, including a progeny of Coronet are all in the best of conditions; Joe runs a big farm besides the stables and is said to be a wonder at handling the plough. -- also --May -Be, who was injured in the Steeplechase at the V. R. C. Spring Meeting, was destroyed last week. Only a few months, ago he won the V.R.C. Grand National Steeplechase in the colours of Mr W. T. Jones, who had leased the horse from Mr J. T. Field, upon whom the loss of the grey son of Cervus will, fall. May Be was originally sold for £6. but afterwards changed hands for £21, and was sold to Mr J. T. Field for £35. It is said, states ' Ribbleden ' in the Australasian, that the first time May Be ran was in a hack race at Bellerive, up to which time he was not thought worthy of a name, and Mr B. McKenna who had charge of the horse at the time, was asked, on making the entry, what he would call him. "Oh, I hardly know," he replied “I’ll call him May Be - he may be first, or he may, be last!'' May Be won and that was the beginning of a career which promised well, but ended disastrously. (Sup)

    Joe Powell has a good one in Dick Turpin who, if among the competitors, should have a very good say in the forthcoming Launceston Cup. He was within an ace of winning the Exhibition Handicap on the 9th inst, the way in which he came up at the last being a sight to be remembered. His performances during the last season were as follows : — Longford Racing, Club, Trial Stakes, November 10, 1890, unplaced, Kronos 1, Glencoe 2, Silvercord 3 ; T.T.C. Christmas Handicap, December 26, 1890, ran second to Macquarie, with Compeer 3, beating also Red Rover, Hopetoun, and others; Longford Racing Club, Trial Stakes, January 1, 1891, first, with Ringarooma 2, Battle Abbey 3 ; Longford Handicap, same meeting ran unplaced, Compeer 1, Hopetoun 2. Jack-in-the-Green 3; T.R.C. Hobart Cup, February 4, 1891,ran unplaced, Lapstone 1, Hopetoun 2, Compeer 3; T.R.C. Wilson Stakes, February 5, ran unplaced, Compeer 1, Macquarie 2, Hopetoun 3 ; T.R.C. Lord Stakes, February 6, ran unplaced, Macquarie 1, Uhlan 2, Compeer 8 ; T.T.C. Launceston Cup, February 11, ran second, nearly three lengths behind Dundas, Compeer 3 ; at same meeting ran unplaced in T.T.C. Handicap, Macgregor 1, Hopetoun 2, Uhlan 3; Table Cape Racing Club, March 21, won Wynyard Cup in a canter by eight lengths from Partner, Kronos, Jack-in-the-Green, and others; Burnie Racing Club, March 24, ran third in Burnie Handicap, Partner1, Kronos 2; Deloraine Turf Club, third in Deloraine Handicap, Myrtle 1, Hopetoun 2. Of late Dick Turpin, who is by Sweetmeat, out of Ghinni Ghinni, , has been shewing improving form. Since his. recent purchase he has been, placed in Joe Powell's stables, and under the Evandale trainer's care, some good performances may be looked for from the black son of Sweetmeat in the near future, for the quality's there right enough, and Joe should be the very man to bring it out.

    The three principal performers in the struggle that followed the running-off of the favourite were, Young Lapidist, Exile, and The Austrian, a very good contest ensuing, Joe Powell's representative ultimately finishing up an exciting race in
    the straight with the piebald gelding by catching the judge's eye a bare half-length to the front. .........The well-known Jack-in- the- Green, who has performed with, varied success for
    some seasons past, made himself manifest in the proceedings at an early stage, and once he got to the front he kept
    there, running well throughout. He was challenged in turn by Red Rover and Myrtle, while Compeer made several dashes towards the front, but the blue and white stripes kept the lead despite their efforts, eventually winning from the representative of the Campbell Town stables by a length. Red Rover made a last rush for it when racing home in the straight, but he suddenly fell away as if he had shot his bolt. Jack-in-the-Green is a son of The Assyrian out of May Queen, and is one of
    Joe Powell's best known horses. Among other performances, he will be remembered in the north as the winner of the Carrick
    Plate of 1890, when with 8st 41b on his back he beat Niobe, Ninus, Myrtle, Miss Richmond, and Rosebud, winning by nearly a length, doing the mile and three-quarters in 2min l7sec.

    .... and the result, I think, conclusively proves that I was not far out in my reckoning when I wrote in these columns "Before the close of the season I expect to see Young Lapidist at the top of the tree among Tasmanian hurdle racers." Since the horse has been in Powell's stables (six months), he has won four hurdle races, and the way he galloped over his opponents in the Mowbray Hurdle, finishing with such ease in front of Medicine (whose subsequent victory in the Steeple, enhances Young Lapadist's performance) all tends to show what a brilliant hurdle racer he is, and I am pleased to that the horse is now to be put over the big fences with a view to the Victorian Grand National, and if Joe Powell can bring him to the post at Flemington in the same perfect condition he had him at, Mowbray, he will run a great horse for the big event.

    By "The Tramp.") In reading 'Kestrel's' interesting and carefully compiled "Turf Statistics for the Season" just closed, I was much pleased to note that Young Lapidist was third on the list of winning horses with the creditable sum of £37O opposite his name. Just a year ago, when I persuaded the owner or Young Lapidist to place the horse in Joe PoweII's hands to be properly trained, I wrote in these columns — ' Young Lapidist has gone into Joe Powell's stable, and before the end of the season I fully expect to see this horse at the top of the tree among our hurdle racers.' Well, he is very much at the top of the tree, for he has put up a record so far as Tasmanian hurdle racers are concerned, for no previous hurdle racer won £370 in one season in this colony. When Young Lapidist was taken out of Mr Norman Cameron's buggy, and I persuaded his new owner (Mr James Falkiner) to have him trained, the good (?) judges declared ' The Tramp' as mad as a hatter, and said he would next say that cart horses would race. Well, facts are stubborn things, and the turf statistics tell their own tale. Still, not even these tell of the ' might have been.' Of course I do not mean to insinuate ; oh ! dear no, I would not do such a thing, for I have had some experience of the law of libel.

    The jumping events were cleverly appropriated by representatives of the Evandale stable, The winner, [The Austrian] who was bred by the Messrs Symmons, is a likely looking stamp of a hurdle racer, and J. Powell certainly deserves compliment for the great improvement he has worked in the horse since he has had him in charge. The Steeplechase served to show the once disappointing Dunlop in something like his genuine form, and the star of the Evandale trainer, J. Powell, was, for the second time during the afternoon, in the ascendant. Powell has worked wonders with Dunlop, whose jumping on Saturday was remarkably neat throughout. He led the field from start to finish, and was never in danger during the contest. (Sup)

    Only seven of the nineteen nominated came out to do battle for the Steeplechase, and it was an open secret that Joe Powell could win with either one of his pair, Dunlop or Ouida, for they were both perfectly trained and schooled and the new and strong fences that were responsible for the absence of others that had accepted had no terror for the Evandale party, who ran first with Ouida and second with Dunlop. Intrigue did some baulking, Prince Albert fell the second last fence from home, Lantern, the nicest looking horse in the race, and Telephone were not fast enough to be dangerous, and Sylvester was the only one who finished near Powell's pair. Joe Powell has won innumerable Steeplechases with ' the old mare, ' as he calls Ouida, who is a splendid jumper, but a long way from being fast, and while I heartily congratulate Joe on his well-deserved success, I must remark that it does not say much for our present lot of steeplechases when none can brought out to lower ' the old mare's' colors, even when -she is giving them lumps of weight- (sup)

    Joe Powell has decidedly placed another big feather in his cap by the manner in which he has brought Fisherman over the small fences. The son of Applause - Summer's Eve is now regarded by many as one of the very best, if not the best hurdle racer in the island. Powell has earned a reputation which extends beyond Tasmania as a proficient tutor of jumpers, and some of our best performed horses have owed their success to his training. Mr Carroll, the owner of Fisherman, has, I understand, written to the Evandale trainer specially thanking him for the manner in which he has brought the horse on. ---Also has some information on a big win by Ladas sire of Desire (sup)

    the horse and the man. The former is a most promising steeplechaser, and no man in this or any other colony can give Joe Powell points at preparing a jumping horse. Of this we have had ample proof, and if I ever have the luck to own a Grand National horse myself Joe Powell shall train him and Jack M'Gee shall ride him.

    Sportsman, a son of the St. Albans horse Vanish, from Nelly Bly, the dam of Blythe, has been purchased by Joe Powell in the interests of a Southern patron of the stable. The horse is a three-year-old, and already shows promise of his jumping capabilities. He is a fine upstanding gelding, and when finished growing will be a big fellow. I remember him taking part in the hunters' trial at Latrobe Show, when, for such a young horse, he shaped admirably. No doubt, given plenty of time, Powell will have a horse which will, with ordinary luck, keep up the reputation of the stable in producing tip-top steeplechasers. (sup)

    Fassiefern being next in demand at 2 to 1. The Sunbeam and Acorn cut out the running and kept together until three furlongs from home, when Quickfire and Fassiefern asked the pair to move faster, a request which the colt could not answer. Even then the pace was not enough for Fassiefern and he moved off from Quickfire and had Acorn for company. The Oaklelgh horse set well to his task, but the Creswick representative had too much up his sleeve winning by about a length in 3 min 43¼ sec The time is very fair, being second to that of Favor's in '93 (3 min 40 sec), when the Larpent horse won from Bischoff, from whom he was in receipt of about two stone, This makes Fassiefern's second win he having annexed the 1½ mile race in '95. Joe Powell had the horse very well, in fact, he has never been better, and with the steady treatment the horses at Evandale are subjected to Fassiefern may be relied to put more important races to his credit ere the season comes to an end.(Sup)

    The dual win of the veteran trainer Joe Powell (who snared the Maiden Hurdle with Lighthouse and the Risdon Plate with Fassiefern) was extremely popular. For some years fortune has frowned on Joe in a most cruel manner, and when old Fassie, splendidly ridden by Neeson sailed horne in front of his field for the Plate, the spectators threatened to shake the grandstand off its perch. Powell has got Fassiefern very fit again, and with Lighthouse and one or two other useful ones the Evandale stable promises to be with the best of them this season.

Field and a visitor were inspecting the thoroughbreds in the paddocks, when Ouida was noticed to be in a bad way with her head and neck swollen. She was immediately brought to the home stead yard, but before remedies could be applied the old mare died. It is presumed she had been bitten by a snake. Her foal is only about a fortnight old. Ouida was by Leitrim, and a good performer in her day.

    Still, if I were a breeder of thoroughbreds I would not go beyond Evandale to secure a sire of the now much-prized Yattendon strain of blood that should, and doubtless will be if he gets a fair chance, become on of the most successful sires of thoroughbred stock in the colony. This is Dick Turpin, a horse of beautiful contour and almost fault less conformation, and who was a far better racehorse than many people ever thought he was. Dick Turpin's sire, Sweetmeat, was a great racehorse, and his dam has thrown several winners ; adedd to this the fact that Dick's pedigree contains some of the best strains of blood ever imported or bred in New South Wales.
