Kiwi racehorse Melbourne Cup winner

Kiwi - racehorse - Melbourne Cup winnerKiwi was foaled in 1977 and was by Blarney Kiss out of the mare Malrayvis (by Messmate)

In his career he had 60 starts for 13 wins for a total prize money haul of over half a million NZ dollars.

His main wins were in the 1983 Wellington Cup and 1983 Melbourne Cup when he came from last to first in the straight to win by over a length an incredible feat that no one who saw it would ever forget.

He cost just $1000 as a yearling originally with the intention of using him as a stock horse by Snowy Lupton. Legend has it that as Kiwi proved to be a fast horse with plenty of stamina around the Lupton farm, Lupton was convinced by his friends to enter Kiwi in the Derby at nearby Wanganui, to see how he ran under race conditions.

He died in 1995 and was buried on Lupton's Farm.
