Favourite Racing Story:
When I was very young (10 or so) I used to love going to my Grandmas in the school holidays not because she was a great cook or good company (which she was but that was a bonus) but because she used to put 50c bets on for me every Saturday. She was kind enough to forget the losers but always “paid in full” when I had a win. Don’t tell my Mum – for some reason she thinks under age gambling is “wrong”! Pfffft
Best Win: The 1992 Doncaster Trifecta – Soho Square, Old Role & Prince Salieri. A win so large they had to write me a cheque at the Brunswick St TAB. The Agency Manager shook my hand and called me a “legend”. What a feeling
Racing Dream: To win a Group race in the Spring Carnival
Why Delbridge Racing? I’ve followed racing from a very young age and I’m glad to finally participate as an owner. Great communications and updates from Delbridge Racing really make me a feel a part of it. It’s also fantastic to see so many of my co-owners on race day – all great racing people and very keen.
