Congratulations Kerrin

Trainer Tony McEvoy congratulated his nephew Kerrin McEvoy on being inducted into the South Australian Thoroughbred Racing Hall Of Fame.

“Kerrin continues to build an impressive career and thoroughly deserved the honour. It is a fitting reward,” McEvoy said.

“It only seems like yesterday that Kerrin came across from Streaky Bay on school holidays to stay with my wife Jo and myself and ride at the then Lindsay Park before eventually becoming indentured to the late Peter Hayes.”

Kerrin McEvoy has gone on to ride more than 1700 winners, 63 at Group One level including two Melbourne Cups, in 2000 on Brew and in 2016 on Almandin.

In a 20-year career, McEvoy has ridden successfully overseas for the Godolphin stable, had a great career with Darley in Australia before branching out on his own in 2014.

Tony McEvoy said the family surname had been prominent in South Australian thoroughbred racing for many years and he was delighted it would be recorded in the SA Hall Of Fame through Kerrin.

“Kerrin had worked really hard and, as his uncle, I am very proud of all he has achieved and the Hall Of Fame entry is a fitting tribute.”
