The king of Victorian Country Cups, Zambora Brockie has retired after finishing third to Blazin’ Bomber on Saturday night in a heat of the Australian Cup at The Meadows.
Finishing with 31 wins from 53 starts and surpassing half a million dollars in prize money, Zambora Brockie has already made himself at home on trainer Anthony Azzopardi’s couch.
“He is three-and-a-half now and he has done more than his owner Charlie and myself could have asked for,” Anthony Azzopardi explained.
“Zambora Brockie is a lovely dog and was absolutely awesome to train; everything was easy with him in training. He was just perfect in every way.”
Although his freakish speed will be missed on the track, it may not be too far away before we see some little Zambora Brockie’s hit the tracks; with countless calls from breeders only hours after announcing his retirement.
Watch: Zambora Brockie win his first country cup on Victorian soil from box eight.
