8/10 in the Herald’s history quiz.

1: (because I know the owners):
2: (because the jockey is in blue):
3: (because the jockey is in Otago colours – blue and yellow).
The field and form are here

Teletext gets my thanks for posing Thursday’s questions and, since we were all stumped, can claim a batch of spicy lemon biscuits by leaving the answers below.
