Turf Deli Spring Racing Carnival - Weekend Hussler Tribute
Weekend Hussler Tribute 18/10/2008

In troubled times, Australians need someone to inspire them, something to aspire to, to galvanize the community and make them forget their woes. A hero to step forward and stand tall. So it was in the Great Depression of the 1930’s that Phar Lap caught the imagination of a nation and a legend was born. A legend that is still remembered today as they flock to the museum to gaze in wonder at the reason why Phar Lap was so dominant – his enormous heart.

In today’s troubled economic times another hero has stepped forward and captured the imagination of a nation. Forget the share market, interest rates, banks going bust, planes falling out of the sky, we have the HUSSLER.



WEEKEND HUSSLER, going from win to win, from triumph to triumph, almost unbeatable, revitalising race crowds. Saving the red cap industry from the brink of disaster.

WEEKEND HUSSLER framed prints -  WEEKEND HUSSLER pencil cases -  WEEKEND HUSSLER action figurines (with stay/sprint flick switch).

WEEKEND HUSSLER breakfast cereal (with complimentary feed bag for the kids).

Can WEEKEND HUSSLER win the Caulfield Cup, Cox Plate and Melbourne Cup, and save the world from environmental and economic disaster ? (in that order too please)

And so it will be, in generations to come, they will flock to the museum to gaze in wonder, and point and stare at what made the HUSSLER the champion he was – his scrawny lopped off testicles.


So as the HUSSLER attempts the near impossible, to win the Caulfield Cup, Cox Plate and Melbourne Cup, let’s not forget the formidable challenge he faces, in re-writing the record books :

- trying to become the most publicised horse in history.

- trying to become the first horse to win the Caulfield Cup since Master O’Reily in 2007.

- trying to be the first horse starting with a W to win the Caulfield Cup since Whittier in 1925

- trying to be the first horse with a two word name to win the Caulfield Cup since Sky Heights in 1999

- trying to be the first horse to be beaten at Sale in a maiden by 0.9 lengths on a slow track on a Sunday in August to go on and win a Caulfield Cup

- trying to be the first horse beaten at the 400M
