Track Sensation to Show Ring Star
A quality horse is a quality horse. So it's not surprising to learn that Phillipa Whitaker's star show horse and winner of the Beyond The Barriers Off The Track Thoroughbred Championship at Equidays this afternoon, Booming, was previously a successful racehorse. Successful might be an understatement. The 13-year-old has his name etched on both the Zabeel Cup and the Wellington Cup, and even qualified for the Melbourne Cup before retiring from racing just three years ago. Since turning his hand to showing, he has continued his winning form, being sashed Champion and Supreme on many occasions. Standing reserve was the current Hack of the Year title holder, Lady's Honour RP, with owner/rider Vanessa Everton.
