KERRIFIC - (Blackfriars/Striking Zoe)
Group winner Kerrific (Billy) retired in 2014 after earning over $600,000 throughout his racing career. His wins included the Belmont Sprint, Grandstand Cup and RJ Peters Stakes. In 2013 he was a very gallant fourth in the Railway Stakes.
Much loved by all at Bruce Watkin’s Racing, Billy was retired and sent to relax in the spelling paddock for 4 months, before long time staff member Audrey Hanley saw potential and took him on as a prospective eventer.
“He is really enjoying his new life and taking to the work well. Being brought on slowly, he loves his training and outings, including dressage and jumping and should be making a start at his first eventing competition soon. We have developed a loving bond and he is very spoilt”, says Audrey.
We look forward to seeing more of Kerrific and Audrey in the winner’s circle of a different kind.
