Late Australian cricketer Shane Warne lived a very active lifestyle. He was also a part-owner of a horse named Sacred Oath. The horse won its maiden career race at the Gold Coast. The jockey, who guided the horse to the win, had a special tribute to the legend.

Jockey, Noel Callow, mimicked the bowling action of Shane Warne as he crossed the finish line. The video of the same went viral all over the internet.

According to a report on dailymail.co.uk, Callow’s three-year-old colt Sacred Oath won the 1200m race to move up a class after a strong win on Saturday, and the jockey paid a “classy tribute to Shane Warne” by rolling his arm over “in a leg-break motion” like the spin legend as he rode to victory.

“The 47-year-old threw his right fist into the air after passing the post, rolling his arm over with a turn of the fingers too in a leg-break bowling action out of respect for the 708-wicket Test legend,” the report said.

According to a story on sen.com.au last month, Warne and his friends had a stake in the David Vandyke-trained horse. AFL players including Sydney’s Jake Lloyd, Port Adelaide’s Trent McKenzie, and a syndicate of Fremantle players including Joel Hamling, Luke Ryan, Brennan Cox, Darcy Tucker, Blake Acres, Brandon Matera, and Michael Walters, are among those who have a share in the horse.

The racing experts were happy with this gesture and the former Australian Football League (AFL) player Campbell Brown tweeted the following.

“Very sentimental win that. Well done David (Vandyke) to get the horse back in such good order after last starts incident. Great ride King and Lovely delivery. Hope u enjoyed that SK (Shane Warne).”
