Bomber Bill

Bomber Bill


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.
