Ryker places second in the Guineas Trial Listed, Movie Show places in a feature and our young stallions are in form. Our foaling season is also complete for 2017.
Crusade’s three year olds are flying and he produced his first double yesterday at Greyville for trainers Paul Lafferty and Dean Kannemeyer, whilst breeder Mr Shakti Bunwarie enjoyed a double on the day with the young sires from Scott Bros.
Crusade’s three year olds are coming through and he has had two winners in the past two days – the first a grey filly named Velvet Dawn who surged away at Kenilworth to a most impressive win by two and a half lengths and Crusado at Greyville, going away to win by two.
Ridden by Jarryd Penny, she won by 8.25 lengths for owner Mr Coates and trained by Duncan McKenzie, Swell Time is a half-sister to 6-time winner King’s Entourage.
Crusade has produced two winners in a week, the first with Roski’s Onamission for Mike De Kock at Turffontein, the other with Romantic Crusade at Durbanville yesterday for July winning trainer Candice Bass-Robinson. Glen Kotzen’s debut winning Crusade, Wings Of Honor, followed up with a third place at the same course.
A few of our foals pictured this season by Crusade, Flying The Flag, The Apache and Mogok. The photos were taken 13 September. We are very pleased that Tellittothestars, the dam of Gr1 winner Talktothestars and Equus Champion Sprinter of 2016, has been scanned in foal to Crusade this season.
The filly out of a Jet Master mare bred by Scott Bros, is owned by Chrigor Stud (Pty) Ltd (Nom: Mrs S Hattingh) and purchased for R250 000 at the 2016 KZN Yearling Sale by Glen Kotzen won impressively on debut.
