has lost a much loved competitor with news that dual Group I winner Whobegotyou
has been laid to rest, so if you're a fan read on to see his tribute.
The seven year-old son of Street Cry (IRE) had been a spring carnival fixture in every season
since 2008 when he shot to fame as the winner of the Group I MRC Caulfield
The Mark Kavanagh trained gelding went on to win 10 races from 29 starts earning a whopping $3.2 million for owner Laurence Eales and his family, who purchased their star for a modest $19,500 from the Widden Stud draft at the 2007 Inglis Classic Yearling Sale.
Whobegotyou has been buried at the Eales family farm at Sunbury… It's been a life well lived.
Bred by David O'Keeffe of Lockyer Thoroughbreds, Whobegotyou is pictured here as a foal at Widden Stud in 2007.
Off to the sales, Whobegotyou was initially passed in and later purchased privately by Laurence Eales.
