Sun Sets on “The People’s Horse”

NZ mare Sunline, Australasia’s grand lady of racing and a champion that uniquely inspired anthromomorphic devotion, ended her five-year domination of Australian tracks with a brave final run at October’s Cox Cup. The winner of 32 of her 47 starts, and more than $11 million in prize money, Sunline has secured herself a place in horse-racing legend: “Her deeds are in the history books for us all to view when we go in search of dead-set champions.” Says rival Northerly’s trainer, Fred Kersley: “Sunline is the people’s horse. She has earned the recognition.”
