Weekend Hussler

Star three year old, Weekend Hussler continued his domination earlier this week, with the taking out the title of the “Worlds Best 3YO Racehorse” during the season and also being the only racehorse to win 6 Group 1 races in the one season since the mighty Kingston Town. 

Weekend Hussler earned 82 per cent of the overall votes to become the first horse to win the award in his three-year-old season since Octagonal in 1995-96.

Weekend Hussler’s season featured Group One wins from 1100m to 1600m in the Caulfield Guineas Ascot Vale Stakes, Oakleigh Plate, Newmarket Handicap, Randwick Guineas and George Ryder Stakes.

Ned Kelly – Such is Life

Limited edition print (1500) of the work titled ‘Ned Kelly – Such is Life’ by artist Michael Parker. A somewhat surreal, humorous and anarchic portrayal of what might have been if Ned Kelly had continued to thwart the system that eventually hanged him.

Australian culture has a curious attraction to the life of Ned Kelly and this artwork plays on that appeal to the underdog by imagining his ultimate revenge.
