Living Legends has announced the death of four-time Sandown Classic winner Zipping

Popular racehorse Zipping has died at Living Legends where he had been living out his days following his retirement from racing.

Living Legends posted on social media on Tuesday morning the news the iron horse had passed away.

Owned by Lloyd Williams, Zipping won 16 of his 47 starts and a little over $4.5 million in prize money in a career that began on the Gold Coast in 2004 and ended at Caulfield in February 2011.

Zipping won the Group 2 Sandown Classic (2400m) on four consecutive occasions with the Melbourne Racing Club later going on to rename the race in his honour.

Besides his Sandown Classic victories, Zipping ran in four Melbourne Cups, finishing fourth on three occasions, along with being placed in three Cox Plates, finishing second in 2008 and 2010 and third in 2009.

Starting his career with Bradley Marzato, Zipping was then taken over by Graeme Rogerson before John Sadler won the first of two Sandown Classics with the gelding in 2007 and 2008.

Robert Hickmott took over for Zipping’s 2009 and 2010 Sandown Classic victories and was the gelding’s trainer until his retirement.
