A Day to Remember

January 17 is date etched forever into Eric Sardi's memory. The date each year marks the anniversary of the passing of his father three years ago.

This year he was quite emotional for a different reason. It represented the date the first horse he has raced, Ocean Mist, won her debut at Warrnambool. Following the win, Sardi commented that his father loved the races and he went to the grave site and had a celebratory beer with his dad. The exciting daughter of Savabeel, which cost her trainer Darren Weir $20,000 as a yearling in Tasmania, continued a great run of horses brought out of the Apple Isle. Bia Diamond, Sauce and Tel Onnah are other winners from the stable, purchased at the Tassie sales.

Ocean Mist is raced by Sardi along with his mate Rob Rogalski, Dick Leech, Dean Gebert, Kevin Wilkie, Kevin Brennan, his son John, Vicky Hughes, David Blackburn and the McPhee Old Boys syndicate. The win was "Weiry's" second for the day after also being successful with Baremin, which started another memorable day for jockey Dean Yendall who booted home five winners at the meeting.
