Goodbye ‘Phillip’

 The Darren Weir stable said goodbye to an old favourite on the weekend when nine-year-old Gotta Keep Cool, known around the stable as Phillip, was retired from racing. The son of Racer’s Edge made an auspicious start to his career, taking seven starts to win a Maiden, as a three-year-old back in 2007. He was then taken through his grades with the highlight of his career being victory in the 2009 Hobart Cup under the riding of Craig Williams. In his later years, he showed an affinity for racing in Adelaide, making a number of successful trips across the border. Owned by brothers Ian, Graeme and Phillip Wood, he had 68 starts for 12 wins and over $540,000 in prizemoney. A gentleman around the stable, Phillip has gone to the home of regular trackrider Angela Taylor-Moy.
