Just Kidding (aka Ferg) owned by Mrs Tinks and Mr Andy Pottinger and rider is a 16-Year-old Australian thoroughbred. He is by the 2000 Kentucky Derby winner FUSAICHI PEGASUS (then sold to Coolmore Stud for $70 million) out of a mare by Sadlers Wells. Just Kidding was originally sold as a yearling for 100,000NZD and acquired by Amanda (for much less) off the track as a five-year-old. He was called Just Kidding because he was so naughty trotting like an angel one minute then going nowhere the next. In 2018 the pair was 2nd at the Adelaide 4* and in 2019 was 4th.
