Big Baba Again!
Jan 01, 2014
Michael's brother Rod was excited enough when his home-bred galloper Big Baba Looey was able to break his maiden at Balnarring in early December - cheering on from Hong Kong where he works as an educator for the Hong Kong Jockey Club.
But his delight was all the greater when he was able to witness the four-year-old in the flesh, gathering with a number of Kent family members to cheer on his horse at the Drouin Boxing Day meeting.
Whilst Big Baba Looey had made the running to win by a length at Balnarring, his second win was even better - the gelding charging home from back in the field before racing away to salute by a soft six lengths.
With Michael Kent Jnr (who has been riding in great form this picnic season) aboard and Rod and Michael's sister Jacqui strapping, it was a terrific day out for everyone. Stay tuned for an interview with Rod to see just how happy he is!
