Description
Information
Just about everyone knows what a drongo is- the not the bird variety. It's what you're likely to be called by your Australian mates if you're a bit of a dill, a loser even. It comes from the racehorse Drongo, who in the 1920's couldn't win a race in 37 attempts, but the animal's saving grace was that the losses were in good company on good racetracks. He came second in the 1923 Victoria Derby.

So, Drongo the racehorse was no drongo. Instead, he was perhaps the greatest loser the equine world has ever seen. Follow Drongo's journey, set against the backdrop of the roaring 20's as we celebrate the 90th anniversary of his derby loss.
