Picnic in the Park won 21 races in a row over a period of approximately 6 months during the 1984-1985 season. This included many track records, and even 2 wins in one day at the Gold Coast.
This feat earned him recognition as equal first in Australian history for number of wins in one season along side Top Ace.
His 21 wins, was at the time an Australasian record and his run ended by severely breaking down whilst leading at Rockhampton heading for 22 wins in a row.
He also was a winner of a Queensland Horse of the Month award and was narrowly beaten by only 1 point for Queensland Horse of the Year.
In a remarkable career he was even given the odds of 80-1 on by many bookmakers on his 20th win at Townsville.
