Shamus & Maddy win at Crookwell


The Thorotek team had a great day at the Crookwell Picnic Races racing the stable pony Depreciation aka Shamus.

Shamus is owned by the team at Thorotek and our trackrider, Maddy Wright, who is leading the Picnic Jockey premiership by a country mile, rode him to victory. Maddy couldn’t resist going up for a salute when she looked over and saw all of the Shamus supporters cheering on the fence and it made for a great winning photo.

Shamus retired from racing in March 2018 to perform pony duties for the stable. He was working so good, he returned to racing on Melbourne Cup Day and has been in the best form of his life since.
