Bomber Bill typifies what Living Legends is all about. Here is the original warrior!
Bomber Bill bowed out of racing at the top level at Caulfield on 3 March 2007 after the JRA Stakes. It was his 98th start and the end of a magnificent racing career that saw him race in 5 Australian states, as well as compete in the Hong Kong International Sprint in 2003. Bomber filled the top 3 placings 34 times with 24 outright wins.
3 times a Group 1 winner and amassing $1.892 million in prizemoney, the evergreen Bomber Bill gave his owner and fans the ride of their life in a career that stretched from a 2-year-old win in West Australia in December of 1997 to his last group win at Sandown in January of 2006.
A perennial favourite with the race crowds, Bomber Bill left the racecourse as one of Australia’s most loved racehorses and a worthy resident of Living legends.
