Carter Dalgety, son of Cran and Chrissie, is following in the family footsteps, working weekends at the stables.

The latest horse in the stable nick-named after him is Bit Of A Legend.

It wasn’t a hard decision as he was Carter’s pick at the 2011 NZ Premier Yearling Sales.

Being on the small side, and a being a half-brother to former big stable winner London Legend, appealed to Carter.

Bit Of A Legend has been a huge success story.

A $50,000 yearling, the Bettor’s Delight entire was a PGG Wrighston NZ Yearling Sales 2YO Open Pace winner, and a dual Australasian Breeders Crown winner. He’s banked $746,366, winning 18 of 40 starts.
