Great story from her website.




Horse ownership is a rollarcoaster ride. Just ask Max Walker who owns HELLO MY FRIEND.

Max bought Hello My Friend from an on-line sale back in 2017. She was an unraced filly by Americain which Tarcoola Stud was selling. It just so happened that Jules was acting as Tarcoola's agent and he brokered the deal which saw Max acquire the filly for $12,000.

Max was a first time owner. He lived opposite Mornington Race Course on a little 2 acre block and after losing his son, decided that he needed a project to fill the void. 'Friend' was it.

Jules convinced Max to send his new filly to Charlotte and so began the journey.

After showing very little in her jumpouts (this is a common theme with daughters of Americain), Max and Charlotte headed to Geelong for her debut earlier in the year with very low expectations. She was 150-1 and given no chance. When Benny Thompson took her to the lead, we all exopected her to compound. However, when she kicked a length clesr on the corner, Max and Charlotte stood in silence as they pondfed the unthinkable. She didn't win but she ran a gallant third, beaten a long neck in what of the greatest debuts seen at Hayfields.

The high was short lived as six unpalced runs followed including a 23L defeat at Cranbourne when Friend went too
hard out in front. Friend was at the cross-roads when she ventured to Racing.Com Park on Oaks Day.

The blinkers were removed, riding tactics altered and she found her way back on a heavy track. The old Friend returned with a stirring victory which brought a tear to Max's eye. The day will go down as one of Max's most memorable moments.

A big thanks to Cheryl and Chloe for saddling up Friend whilst Charlotte and Jules were at Flemington.

And lastly to Max, we did it, with some help from above!

I hope one day this can become a stand alone Saturday meeting.
Will sit nicely between Ballarat and Pakenham after the Spring in Melbourne ends

Yeh why not.

It is certainly a class above the very best Moonee Valley can throw up.

I loved it and looked to be popular at the track too. Warrnambool is the perfect location. Hope it goes from strength to strength.

Why did they run a 5m 31s etc to the other race over the distance run of 4m 31s?  I didn't see the race so just wondered.

I really enjoyed the race.


Quesion..how would a Melbourne Cup winner fare in the Jericho Cup? Is it possible that they would be "too brilliant"to run out the 4600 metres?
It's always good when a WA horse does well in the Eastern States or abroad.

I wonder if Rick McIntosh could have fit any more jumps racing references into his call. Just about every furlong a mention. “If this was the grand annual they’d be about to jump a triple” “the grand annual winner from May”
It was a great race and a great concept. Let it stand on its own without trying to tie it into the jumps scene.

Given the fact the Jericho is only for Aus / NZ bred horses and is a Benchmark 90, t would be virtually impossible for a Melbourne Cup winner to run in the race.

Interesting question none the less.

This year it was a benchmark 76.

Sir Charles Road would have compressed the weights if he qualified. I think Who Shot Thebarman was the only qualified Cup runner ?

Who Shot Thebarman......108 = 79 kgs
Sir Charles Road........107 = 78.5
Youngstar...............107 = 76.5

Who Shot Thebarman with 79
The rest of the field would have been on the minimum 64.

Great race....
Wonderful atmosphere. I hope they continue with these long distance races. These kind of races use to be staple in the 19th century.

But not for the commentator.

Really all those references to the jumps, where they would of been and what the horse won at is just taking away from the necessary color commentary which is needed for a event like this.

I reckon that kid would of done a better job. His tone and volume was heaps better than what I just heard.

I agree brudder, it wasn't a terrible call but the constant references to Warnambool jumps races took something away from the race for mine.

Packed.  Trying to get accommodation anywhere near Warrnambool in Cup week is impossible without a well in advance booking.

Nothing wrong with the call, I thought he did it justice.
Was disappointed with the racing.com coverage though, talking over the national anthem and Last Post was disrespectful

Rick Macintosh was great to listen to when he called Jump races at a time they were under pressure and looked like maybe be lost to the do gooders. He talked it up and gave it a presence. Now he just carries on and tries to put his mark on every race. As far as that bloke they have working for Racing.com down around Warrnambool area now, I can’t remember anyone who is more painful to listen to!. I reckon he said the word “sensational” forty times over the days telecast and then to talk through the Anthem and the Last Post was a disgrace. Don’t know who is or where they dragged him from but I hope his stay isn’t a long one.

We had a great time watching Penthouse Playboy run in the Jericho, was a wonderful day.
The horse just got a bit lost going around the circuit for the first time, didn’t handle the sand crossings or the road, and being out in the wide spaces. Once he got onto the course proper, his finale was satisfactory. He has now gone out to the paddock for a well earned break, will be back for some races in the Autumn.
