Default Spring Carnival

Having recently read Nimisha's Ship, I did find a horse called Erehwon amongst the horses who will be racing during the Spring Carnival in Melbourne (Moonee Valley, Caulfield and Flemington races) which then made me think of the races they had at Ruathan Gathers. Food for thought ~ naming things, animals and people found in the books one reads whether before or afterwards

Yeah, silly name for a horse if you ask me. Unless they though they wouldn't get erehwon with that horse...

It might have been named after the original book?
