The Zipping Classic

November 15th, 2014 0 comments

Zipping. What a wonderful horse! Won this race four times straight, from 2007 to 2010. I seem to remember the first time I backed him was in a race at Flemington where there were two hot favourites. Maybe he came in second. All I remember is that I got over $5.00 for the place in a five-horse field! He still looks good, with that odd white sock.

I backed Spilllway who looked very smart in the yard. All the form experts told me that it wouldn’t get the trip, but I don’t do form. The horse loomed up and looked more than likely, but suddenly realised it couldn’t get the trip. Fourth. A losing day.
