Born in Point Cook, Newminster was the most famous Chirnside racehorse. After a precarious birth and an attempt on his life, he won the first Caulfield Cup in 1879.

Newminster was an immensely successful and famous racehorse from the Chirnside stable.

Shortly after his birth in Point Cook, his mother died and he was nearly shot. After being poisoned by a corrupt stable-hand, Newminster went on to win the first Caulfield Cup in 1879. After his near death, Newminster’s loosebox at the Point Cook Homestead drew immense crowds, becoming a tourist attraction.

In more recent times an estate and street in the Point Cook area were named after this renowned racehorse.
