Horlicks (horse)

Horlicks (born 1983) was an outstanding thoroughbred racemare from New Zealand.

A descendant of Nearco, the dark gray mare was owned by Graham de Gruchy of Hastings and trained by Dave and Paul O'Sullivan. She won the lucrative, internationally-contested 1989 Japan Cup in a world record time of 2.22 for 2400 metres - a remarkable feat given that many of the world's classic races, such the Belmont Stakes, are run over this distance. She won five Group One races other than the Japan Cup, namely the LKS MacKinnon Stakes in Melbourne, the Television New Zealand Stakes (twice), and DB Draught Classic (twice).

Horlicks retired from racing with a record of 17 Wins, 10 Places, and 2 Shows in 40 starts and career earnings of NZ$ 4,165,407.

She has also proven to be an outstanding broodmare, as the dam of the 2000 Melbourne Cup winner Brew (by Sir Tristram), and the ill-fated stakes winner Bubble.
