Daryl joins the sta­ble of rac­ing leg­ends

Sunday Herald Sun - - GOSSIP QUEEN -

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.

The new auc­tion date is yet to be con­firmed. THANKS to his much-loved per­for­mances of The Horses on Cox Plate Day,

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.

made a very low-key exit from the much-hyped, but poorly per­formed, SEN break­fast show on Fri­day. McLach­lan started with

and in March. Lyon farewelled him by say­ing: “It has been great work­ing with you, don’t blame you for giv­ing us the a---.”

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

will vie for the Miss Uni­verse in­ter­na­tional ti­tle in Las Ve­gas in Novem­ber.

Af­ter months of wait­ing, the in­ter­na­tional Miss Uni­verse or­gan­i­sa­tion fi­nally con­firmed on Fri­day that the beauty quest gala crown­ing would be held at the Planet Hol­ly­wood casino in the neon city on Novem­ber 26.

Rogers re­lo­cated to Mel­bourne from Ade­laide ear­lier this year be­fore win­ning the Miss Uni­verse Aus­tralia ti­tle.
