‘Voz’ still the boss

Wednesday, 4th January, 2012

 The opening night of action for the BH Harness Racing Club produced a beautiful summer evening and a good crowd to witness the running of the Kerry Halliday Memorial Pace.

Last year’s leading trainer-driver Andrew Vozlic was the star of the show with a winning treble, including victory with Tommys Lil Sis in the feature event.

Congratulations to Andrew and his partner Rhana for starting the season in such fantastic fashion and while Andrew gets most of the spotlight, the work done behind the scenes by Rhana should not be underestimated.

Speaking with her on Saturday, Rhana said she was very happy with the night and vowed they would be regular visitors to the city this season which augers well for a very competitive racing scene.

 When the curtain rises on the new BH harness racing season at Memorial Oval Paceway tonight a key member of the cast will sadly be absent from the stage.

Whether you knew Kerry Halliday as ‘Boots’, ‘Pud’ or ‘Doc’, the common denominator was that this giant of a man was a loyal servant to equine sports in the city and his absence leaves a gaping hole that will be hard to fill.

“If Kerry was on your team you were set,” close friend and BH Harness Racing Club Senior Vice-President Tony Camilleri said.

“He was a loyal friend - a straight shooter - you couldn’t wish for a better mate.
