Daryl joins the stable of racing legends
Khas reversed his decision to auction off part of his trove of guitars accumulated over his career with legendary Australian band, INXS.
Pengilly initially listed 36 guitars from his 60-strong private collection for auction with Sotheby’s on October 24.
However on Wednesday at the Virgin Australia Grand Final Party, he revealed he had changed his mind.
“I have postponed it. It all got a little bit crazy today and it just freaked me out and for personal reasons I have decided to postpone it (the auction) until next year,” Pengilly said.
“You get to a stage in your life, I am nearly 60, when you feel like you need to declutter. I have a lot of stuff, lots of music equipment, and I am not doing much music-wise at the moment. It is all sitting in a little tiny apartment in the city.” His wife,
said she supported his decision to eventually downsize his collection of instruments.
“I wanted a place to stay in the city and guitars were taking up a little too much room. I said get rid of these guitars so we can put a bed in the city (apartment),” she said.

has, over the years, become as much a Moonee Valley legend as the winners of the great race.
Braithwaite, who will be back at the Valley again this year for the weight-for-age championship on October 28, said the race day crowd was unique.
“They are so supportive there, the audience, and they don’t have to like me or the song, but they do,” he said.
“Last year it rained but strangely enough it put a slant on it that made it nearly the best one we have ever done.
“We were up in the stands, people did not know where we were, we started, they heard the song and thought, ‘Where is that coming from,’ then they just flooded in from everywhere and everyone had a bit of a sing.”
Braithwaite, who visited Cox Plate winners
and at Living Legends on Tuesday, said he was grateful to continue to be asked back to the Valley.

SUNRISE’s sports bloke was missing in action from the Grand Final yesterday and — rather than being in Melbourne — was laid up on the couch at home in Sydney recovering from blood clots in his injured left leg. Beretta broke his kneecap while water skiing last month.
His recovery hit a hurdle on Thursday.
“Turns out I am not bulletproof ..... Back in emergency again,” he wrote on Instagram.
“Leg swollen like a balloon, so off for an ultrasound that reveals not one, but two dvt’s (sic) or blood clots in my lower leg!
“Nice surprise. So confined to the couch again. No grand final trip.” MELBOURNE’S
