Good Lord was a New Zealand thoroughbred racehorse owned by Las Vegas lawyer Michael L. Hines (1920-1985). Foaled in 1971, and purchased for just $6,250 as a yearling, Good Lord was by Zamazaan out of Love in Bloom. He was a good staying racehorse winning two Wellington Cups, the Queen Elizabeth Cup in 1977 where the Queen herself presented the Cup, and the Sydney Cup in 1978. The first Wellington Cup in 1977 was a thrilling encounter when he beat the great race mare Show Gate. In 1979, on U.S. soil, Good Lord won the Eddie Read Handicap under Bill Shoemaker, while trained by the late Charles Whittingham. For the record, he raced under the name My Good Man in Australia.
