Goldrush also was driven to the church by his owner Peter Robson with his daughter, Gina, on her wedding day.Peter Robson and his team competed in a demonstration class of the 50th Mobil Silver Plough competition held on April 30th & May 1st in North of Oamaru at Pukeuri, The Morgan team was 3rd in this class to two part Clydesdale teams & achieved higher points than the leading Vintage Tractor combination. Competitors were allowed 3 hours to plough their 100 meter x 20 meter grass and stubble plot. Any slight diversion off the intended course would have spelled disaster. Judges allocate points for the other factors including the opening spit, tightness of the furrows, how much soil was available for crop, seedbed preparation & the finish. Peter is also involved in the tourist trade as he contracts to drive a team of 5 to a stagecoach.
