In 1935 Mr.W.T.(Tom) Oliver, of Fairfax, in Western Southland, purchased Rodeur after two unplaced starts
as a two-year-old from Mr.L.W. Storry, of Christchurch, and thus began the Mongolian Khan story.

Trained at Riverton throughout her career Rodeur won ten races, Southland RC Flying Handicap, Short's Handicap,
Riverton RC Aparima Handicap, Farewell Handicap, 9 wins for trainer R.(Bob) McNay, and one win for trainer
A. (Andy) McKay.


At stud her first foal was Faithful Pal, 9 1/2 wins, CJC Craven Plate, then followed Excellency, 16 wins, the best racemare ever to be trained in Southland.

Excellency was unbeaten in five starts as a two-year-old, Dunedin JC McLean Stakes, Winton Stakes,
Canterbury JC Welcome Stakes, Pioneer Handicap, Dunedin JC Champagne Stakes. In the Welcome
Stakes at Riccarton Excellency beat the leading North Island filly Lady Christine (Christopher Robin)
by four lengths.

Excellency had eleven starts as a three-year-old for 4 wins, 3 seconds, 1 third, Dunedin JC Publican's
Handicap, James Hazlett Gold Cup, weight-for-age with penalties, 1 mile, defeating Irish Note (Irish
Lancer) and Wantwood (Salmagundi) both previous winners of the Canterbury JC Stewards' Handicap,
Canterbury JC Middle Park Plate, 1 mile, for three-year-old fillies, by twenty lengths, Wellington RC
North Island Challenge Stakes, weight-for-age, over 7 furlongs.

Excellency had another successful season as a four-year-old, with 5 wins, 3 seconds, 1 third, from
10 starts. First up Excellency won the Dunedin JC Telegraph Handicap. On the death of her trainer
Andy McKay prior to her engagement in the James Hazlett Gold Cup, Excellency was transferred
to Invercargill trainer F.W.(Fred) Ellis, and won the feature event at Wingatui.

At her last two starts for the season Excellency won the Canterbury JC Tasman Stakes, 1 mile,
weight-for-age, and four days later won her first staying test over 1 1/2 miles.

When trained by Andy McKay, Excellency's maximum distance was 1 mile, but in under 4 months
(116 days), Fred Ellis in an outstanding training feat developed Excellency into a stayer. His previous
success with stayers included Royal Lancer (Irish Lancer), 1942 Canterbury JC New Zealand Cup,
2 miles, Eriskay (Salmagundi) Dunedin JC 1948 Dunedin Centennial Cup 1 3/4 miles, and Salmon
Spear (Salmagundi), Canterbury JC 1950/1951 Sockburn Handicap, 1 1/2 miles.

In her last season of racing the five-year-old Excellency recorded 2 wins, 1 second, from 5 starts,
Southland RC Southland Handicap, 1 mile 3 furlongs, and 1949 Canterbury JC New Zealand Cup,
2 miles, carrying top-weight of 8st. 11lb. Excellency during her career recorded 16 wins, 7 seconds, and 2 thirds, from 31 starts.
