Not since Ian Clubb recorded his fourth victory in the King’s Cup in 1978 has a New South Welshman achieved four victories in this “blue riband” interstate event. With a convincing win at Westlakes SA in the 2011 King’s Cup NSW now has four of the current winning crew who have achieved this milestone.

Matt Ryan, Fergus Pragnell and Sam Loch were all in the winning crews of 2008,9,10 and 11 while James Champman won in 2004, 08, 10 and 11. Our photo shows from left James Chapman, Fergus Pragnell, Sam Loch and Matt Ryan after their 2011 win as they celebrate their joint achievement.
