Chestnut gelding by Monsieur Bond out of the Medicean mare Champagne Katie, he showed form in novice events and is running in handicaps as a three year old.
Name: Danger Island was a live-action serialized drama screened in the late 1960s. One of the characters was called Chongo and spoke only in a series of monkey-like chatters and bird calls.
Chongo frequently found himself in trouble on the island, which is when you'd hear the catchphrase of the series, "Uh oh, Chongo!"
