Our Kiwi champion

Kiwi doesn’t always work out on the Waverley track. More often than not Snow climbs on the horse as the sun is just peeping over the horizon and gallops him on the farm. The day we are there ducks take off from the lake, pheasants cackle in the still air and mist lies in the dips as Lupton takes his famous horse on a 10km ride around the property.

At one stage, with dogs yapping around his feet, Kiwi herds cattle from one paddock to another. The next day it might be sheep. Kiwi is clearly more than just a racehorse.
