History-making “Honkin”

By Dave Di Somma - Harness News Desk

For a star juvenile Honkin Vision  lived to a grand old age.

The 33 year old son of “Honkin Andy” has been laid to rest at his owner Vin Devery’s farm just north of Invercargill

Devery told harnesslink.com : “His health was deteriorating. Normally he’d pick himself up in the summer enough to do okay in the winter but I felt he wasn’t going to this time.”

Honkin Vision was the first two year old to win $250,000 in one season, and that was in 1988-89.

“That was a huge amount in those days”

Overall he won 16 races from 43 starts, and stakes of $510,395.
