Master Magic impressed his connections on debut by winning at Turffontein by a length at odds of 36/1. His pleasantly surprised connections were on course to see the win over 1400m.

Trained by David Niewenhuizen, Master Magic passed through the 2017 KZN Yearling Sale as unsold, and was picked up for a mere R15 000 at the National 2YO Sale. The son of Mogok out of Keen To Travel by Rakeen, this is the immediate family of Long Dollar, Bound To Travel and Toccatta.

Well done to owners Mr B I Rajhununan & Messrs Mervin Naidoo, P A Govender & Mrs Kumari Naidoo.

Another to impress recently has been Moss Gass, in training with Paul Peter. The daughter of The Sheik out of a Mogok mare, has now won twice on the trot over 1200m – and yet to be out of the money from her last six starts. She is owned by the Hyperpaint Syndicate and has earned R333,975 in stakes to date.

Eightfold Path is impressing recently, especially with his very exciting son The Rising Legend, which the Woodruff Stable are excited about. The 3yo gelding out of Jet Master mare, Ramp Vamp (the dam of 8-time winner Cannes) has now won twice from three starts and placed second once. Initially named Gee Que, he sold for R200 000 at the 2016 National Yearling Sale and has won almost R140 000 in stakes from 3 starts. He has now won at the Vaal and Turffontein over 1500m – 1600m for owners LTK Racing & Breeding (Nom:Mr L J van der Vyver)

From small opportunities at his first season at stud, Eightfold Path has produced 11 winners this season. Look out for a Crusade half-sister to The Rising Legend and multiple winner Cannes, at the upcoming National Yearling Sale, as well as Eightfold Path half-siblings to Gr1 winner Orbison and Gr2 Emerald Cup winner, Meadow Magic.

Crusade is currently on a winners to runners percentage of almost 36% and flying the flag with his smart daughter, Covered In Snow.

Look for our draft at the Emperors Palace National Yearling Sale, taking place 24, 25, and 26 April in Germiston at the TBA Complex.
