Royal Randwick To Dip Its Lid To Anthony ‘Dipper’ Diprose

Moree picnic races kick-start bush racing’s Golden Triangle this Saturday but there will be one familiar face missing from the crowd – Anthony ‘Dipper’ Diprose. Sadly, Dipper passed away last year at just 47.

He left behind his wife Bec and three young children, George, Millie and Isabelle – and a legacy of goodwill that will last forever.

Memories and anecdotes of his close, benevolent connection with local racing will be fondly remembered and relived on Saturday – and not just at the Moree picnics, either.

At Royal Randwick’s corresponding meeting, a race named in Dipper’s honour will take pride of place as part of the Sporting Chance Foundation Raceday.

Dipper’s close friend Peter Weal said Dipper’s link with Sporting Chance – an organisation that has raised millions of dollars over the years – came about through his friendship with foundation patron Mark ‘Tubby’ Taylor, the former Australian cricket captain.
