Memories of one of the great characters of Australian racing will be revived when The Wildman makes his debut at Doomben on Saturday.

The Wildman is named after the late Sydney trainer Tony Wildman who died from cancer in 2008.

Wildman trained at Warwick Farm for many years and had a string of good horses including Gentle Genius, Timbourina, Cinque Cento and Charmview.

He was great friends with Sunshine Coast trainer Mick Mair who prepares The Wildman.

“I just hope the horse is as good a galloper as Tony was a good bloke,” Mair said.

The Wildman scored an easy win in a Sunshine Coast barrier trial on October 7, scoring by 3-1/4 lengths in fast time over 850m.

The minor placegetter in the trial, Falchion, ran third at Doomben last Saturday.

The Wildman is part-owned by Mary Bell, the wife of Brisbane Racing Club Chairman Neville Bell, who also raced the gelding’s dam Bevagna.

Meanwhile, Mair is still weighing up the options for his top mare Queen Of The Lochs who finished third at Doomben in her return to racing last week.

“The way they are all heading off to Melbourne I might stay here and get some prize money. But there are a few things around for her,” he said.
