Wakes and I own 5% of a racehorse. Yesterday was an exciting moment in our brief ownership history – the horse, a colt, was officially named ‘Tarpins’ .
Tarpins’ sire is Pins and his dam is Sailor’s Lift. (Another name for sailor is ‘tar’, hence the name Tarpins). The runner-up in last year’s Cox Plate, El Segundo, is by the same sire. We have high hopes to go one better!
Tarpins is trained by Cliff Brown, who has recently moved to stables in Flemington.
Not sure when our boy will be racing, but I’ll keep you updated on his progress on this site.
