Tipster Monolulu's race trouble; your letters: Remember When.
IT was interesting to read CJ Swinge's memories of Bethnal Green, particularly the racing tipster Prince Monolulu (Mirror, Dec 6).
His real name was Peter Carl McKay and he wasn't exactly a prince. At race meetings his catchphrase was: "I have been sent here by Sir Winston Churchill to help the unemployed." On a sinister note, he was beaten up at Brighton race course by the notorious race gangs of the 1930s for tipping too many winners. My last memory of him was at the Hurst Park race course shuffling his way towards Hampton Court station, declaring to my grandmother, "This country is too darn cold."
