The king has been crowned on the 2016 Wanganui Punter of the Year for 2016 in a remarkable story of never give up. Well actually he did!
After only one collect in Race 1 of the competition and nothing else over the next 6 races it came down to the final race on the card. He put $120 on the nose on a $20+ long shot and with local hope Hundyamonth barrelling down the Home straight he gave up and walked back inside until he heard the unimaginable that in a huge finish his selection She's Poppy had taken the honours!
Irony prevailed as the leader throughout the day, B Connors, was leap frogged by a Connors horse and the eventual winner Darrell Hoskin who just happened to sponsor the last race on the card - the Dave Hoskin Carriers 1590!!
Well done Darrell you have bragging rights for the year mate and a great story to top it off.
