Ahead of Winx’s shot at a historic fourth consecutive Cox Plate, we dug up some audio from the 2016 Cox Plate where Dean Yendall gave us way too much info about his morning before the big race.
Yendall came on Dead Set Legends with Mark Howard and Brendan Fevola, and Howie kicked off the interview asking how he woke up in the morning ahead of his ride in the big race.
“How are you feeling? Do you wake up in the morning with an extra spring in your step and have an extra half glass of water?” Howie asked.
“I woke up with a massive horn actually,” Yendall responded.
Cue chaos in the studio, with Fev absolutely LOSING IT.
The "massive horn" worked out ok for Yendall — he finished third behind Winx and Hartnell.
No word on how Winx jockey Hugh Bowman woke up this morning, or whether Yendall was in the same state this morning ahead of his ride on Darren Weir trained Savoie in race 10 today.
