Zip was known as an iron horse on the racetrack and is a strong-willed horse who will not do anything he doesn’t want to do. He won the Sandown Classic, the traditional last race of the Spring Carnival on 4 occasions and in recognition of this feat the race was renamed as the Zipping Classic. At Living Legends Zip enjoys a good scratch and hanging out with his paddock mates, especially Efficient who he has spent most of his life with. He is a very intelligent horse who knows how to get what he wants and will bow for carrots when he is desperate!
