LIAM de Kock spent a few hours at Flemington Park in Melbourne with his Dad Mathew yesterday – a suitable early introduction to the racing life!
Hang on to these photos, Mat, they’ll come in useful the day you win the Melbourne Cup, or Liam does, or perhaps even the old man!
Nothing is impossible, did anybody say, ‘Dream On!’? (No, nobody did, we’re talking about the De Kock family here!)
Liam looks pretty comfortable out there, relaxed in his surroundings. Any bets? Pro golfer like his dad was going to be at one point? Jockey? His great-grandfather and uncle were jockeys, his grandma rode winners in amateur races too! Dancer/artist? (Aunt Kirsten is a star).
But also remember, mom Monique is a trainer in her own right. Future trainer, odds-on!
