You better race down to the dairy and pick one up",' she said according to the NZ Herald.

An emotional Waller, who started the day speaking out about the need for racing to respond to recent revelations of abuse of former racehorses at slaughterhouses, expressed joy at the big win after convincing Coolmore Australia to run the young horse in The Everest.

"You have to go to the owners … 'This is a horse I think can win The Everest, you can't go in to run second or third'," Waller told the Seven Network.

"To tell you the truth [it's an] amazing feeling, but where we have been with Winx puts it all [in perspective]. Where she took us has probably set us up for days like this to cope so much better.

"Yeah, I took it all in our stride all week. Why I'm getting emotional is the ride she took us on.

"It's a great sport, proud to be in it."

Redzel, the seven-year-old gelding attempting to win the race for the third time, was second in the straight but faded to finish back in the field.

More to come.

It's not just horses who are discarded from the racing industry .
One of the reasons so many former jockeys, trainers and stablehands lose their way is because there is no place for them in the industry once they retire or become incapacitated. For some it’s easy to find a new career path but for others when the sport they grew up in turns its back on them they have no other circles of friends and nowhere to go.As jockeys are employees of Racing Victoria when they are injured and receiving Workcover they’re often made to come in to the office or go to the races and perform some light duties as part of their return to work.
