Tail Hairs From 6 Champs In Violin Bow
In New Zealand, tail hairs from triple Melbourne Cup winner Makybe Diva, multiple Gr1-winner Sunline, US Breeders Cup champion Ouija Board & champion sires Sadlers Wells, Redoute's Choice & Zabeel have all been collected & combined in the making of a unique violin bow (known as the Bow Of Champions) to be auctioned at spinal cord injury trust CatWalk's Up & Away Charity Dinner in Christchurch on November 13. The bow has been "forged in the ancient tradition of music-making, using the very best horse hair available".
