Barry Humphries Steals The Show At Warwick Farm

By Brad Gray

Iconic Australian entertainer Barry Humphries was at Warwick Farm on Wednesday to cheer home debutant Dante Rossetti.

The Sebring colt, trained by Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott out of Tulloch Lodge, led up the field but weakened to finish sixth in the field of seven but was only beaten three lengths by the winner Piracy.

“(Ownership) is new for me. My wife loves horses. She rescued some horses from the outback – some beautiful brumbies – and I’ve come around to them,” Humphries said.

As Sky Thoroughbred Central’s Richard Haynes so eloquently put it, it’s a long way from the West End to Warwick Farm. Humphries, 83, is best known for playing his alter egos Dame Edna Everage and Sir Les Patterson.

“I gamble on myself and I always win. Anything else, not so lucky,” Humphries said when prompted if he intended to back Dante Rossetti prior to the race.
