Big City Life Remembered

On behalf of Glen and Kathi Kotzen and the entire Woodhill Racing Team, we wish to thank everyone for all their kind messages of support during this tough time.

We are humbled by the phenomenal response we have experienced over the past few days since his passing and are grateful for each and every call, facebook message and sms we have received.

It is never easy having to say goodbye to any horse, let alone a champ like Big City Life. He was an incredible horse that we loved so dearly. He had the nature of a saint and people were drawn to him from a foal. Unfortunately, his heart out ran his legs on Saturday in a race he was famous for winning in 2009, the Vodacom Durban July.

Born and reared at our Woodhill Training Establishment, he was a favourite amongst the stable staff and was loved for his character. We cherish the time we had with him and are privileged to have trained him for our wonderful owners, Raymond & Paula Deacon, Glen & Debbie Mitchell, Sue & Paul Whitmore and Liane de Jager. We share your loss for the horse that we loved.

He now rests at Summerveld training centre and is buried next to another Cape Champion, Rabiya.
Big you are a legend dearly loved by so many. Rest in peace Big boy.

letter from Glen Kotzen
