Bowman Donates Winx Breeches to NJT

Wednesday, 1st November 2017

Hugh Bowman has donated his breeches worn on champion mare Winx when they combined for her historic third Cox Plate victory last weekend to the National Jockeys Trust. The breeches, which have been signed by Bowman and authenticated by the Australian Jockeys Association, will be auctioned at the Call of the Card on Cup Eve, Monday 6 November at Palladium at Crown. All proceeds will be donated to the National Jockeys Trust. “Hugh Bowman is a true champion both in the saddle and in his support of the National Jockeys Trust. These signed breeches are now an incredible piece of Australian racing history,” said Des O’Keeffe, chairman of the Australian Jockeys Association.
