Sharing footage of the moment of glory, the SAS star wrote: “Dads horse “sacred oath” won his first race yesterday. Nice gesture from the jockey Noel Callow. 🙏🏼❤️🐎.”

It was early Saturday morning on March 5 when Australians awoke to the news that Shane Warne tragically died of a suspected heart attack in Thailand.

Known for many legendary cricket moments, including his famous Ball of the Century in 1993, there was no doubt that Shane’s biggest achievement in life was his kids.

They arrived to the service with mother Simone Callahan, who also came to pay her respects more than 15 years after she and Shane split.

“I know you will be forever watching me and be by my side,” Summer said after taking to the stage. “I will cherish the 20 years of memories we have.”
