HOW do you weaken the resolve of a pregnant wife who reckons you have too many racehorses?
For Ozzie Kheir, who’d promised his mates he’d join them in a fourth horse, there was only one way – name the horse after the unborn child.
Hence, at the Caulfield stables of top trainer Mick Price, little Lenni Kheir met Let Go Lenni.
“The horse was already called Rock Strada, but I explained to the guys that I was having a bit of trouble getting it (the horse) past the missus, so that’s where Let Go Lenni came in,” Mr Kheir said.
When he was offered his share in Rock Strada, his wife Linsey was thee months pregnant with their first child, already named Lenni.
“She eventually gave in,” Mr Kheir said.
His foray into racehorses has had its moments.
