Byblos Boy is an 11-year-old with a zest for the not just life, but racing too

From the ‘Here’s Something You Don’t See Everyday” files comes a story of racing longevity we’d all be proud of and one that needs to be shared.

At Wagga this afternoon, two popular, talented, honest triers, both of whom are now veterans, will clash in race 6 over 1000m.

And collectively they will be racing for the 228th time!

How’s that for a love of the sport?

BYBLOS BOY (Byblos – Sonatina) is an 11-year-old with a zest for the not just life, but racing too.

He has won 7 times at this distance (9 times all up in his career) and earned $126,345 in stakes money, his racing dating back to July of 2014 when he won on debut at Kembla.

That followed five years in the paddock. Since then he has raced 57 times.

But he is a novice compared to his rival this afternoon, BENNO’S BOY (Dane Shadow – Explicit Vixen) who steps out for run 171 at Wagga.

He’s a sprightly 9YO now and he has won 17 times earning $254,575 in stakes earnings.

Unlike Byblos Boy who has never set foot on Wagga until today, Benno’s Boy has raced here on 46 occasions, surely a record, and won a trio of races.

Both old stages are gentleman. They parade beautifully and they are sound.

They give their all and their presence on race day and their attitude to running and their love of their human companions make a complete mockery of those who claim the sport demonises the animal and is cruel.

Watch and cheer these two old warriors at Wagga this afternoon and I hope they quinella the race.

Fantastic job and congrats go out to their connections, especially their trainers: Peter Korn with Byblos Boy and Michelle Borserio with Benno’s Boy.

Both trainers also own their horses and love them to death.
