An Ekka legend honoured

For around 50 years Fred Andrews was a fixture in the stables at the Ekka.

In the early 70s he was a harness racing competitor before spending 40 years as an RNA trotting and swabbing steward.

He retired last year aged 92 and this year he has been honoured as an official Ekka Legend.

Fred tells Mark that if his blood pressure hadn’t let him down he’d still be working in the stables at the exhibition.
