In the Rafeef Room

THE photos below were taken by Michael Smith, who stayed over in the new five-star William Inglis Hotel near Warwick Farm in Sydney, Australia.

Smith, a Darley Flying Start student who spent two months with Mike de Kock’s team in Dubai last year, tweeted: “In a serendipitous occurrence I’m staying in a room at the new Inglis hotel paying homage to G1 winner Rafeef, who was conditioned by a great trainer and mentor in Mike de Kock.”

The hotel and sales centre replaced the old Newmarket Centre and opened its doors last week. It has several theme rooms dedicated to Gr1 winners sold at Inglis Sales.
