Fish is one of our more opinionated and mischievous horses. He can be a sweet boy when he is in a good mood and there are treats around.
Even though he is bossy with people, he is usually down the bottom of the pecking order in his paddock. Fish loves his best mate Zipping, who he usually hangs around with. Zipping even shares his food with Fish, something that Zip won’t do with any other paddock mate!
He is also a horse who is very playful and keeps an eye on everything that is going around him. He is usually the first in his paddock to come over to investigate if anyone is doing anything in there!
Fish is also the only horse since Pharlap to win a Victoria Derby the year before he won the Melbourne Cup.
