Mention the name McDa Knife (NZ) and watch Tony Parker's eyes light up. His wife Vicky is encouraging, 'Old Mc proved that horses don't know how much they cost! It's how they're trained and treated that counts!' Tony just has to share the story of how his $600 ($NZ) yearling from the Karaka May Yearling Sales went on to be broken-in and trained by him to win $115,768 ($NZ) with racing statistics of 27-4-7-4, and to run 2nd in the Group 1 Wellington Cup run over 3200 m (New Zealand's equivalent of the Melbourne Cup), 2nd in the Group 2 Taranaki Cup (2000 m), and 3rd in the Group 2 Waikato Cup (2400 m).
We invite you to read through this gallery of McDa Knife press articles and discover how much pleasure training McDa Knife brought to the Tony Parker Racing stable.
