Gr3 TOMMY HOTSPUR HANDICAP at Turffontein this Saturday

T

The Gr1 Computaform Sprint to be run on Champions Day is a natural target for any sprinter worth his salt and Mike de Kock’s 3yo Mujallad looks a progressive sort capable of going on to better things. That could commence with a big run in Saturday’s R250 000 Gr3 Tommy Hotspur Handicap.

he 1000m handicap hosts a capacity field of speed merchants and with Gary Alexander, who trained the legendary Tommy Hotspur, saddling topweight Champagne Haze, the scene is set for a possible romantic twist to proceedings. But the dash will be over in under a minute with no quarter expected or given, and the happy romantic stories will take a backseat to the quest for dominance and the power of pace. One of a quartet of 3yo’s who will be keen to assert his prospects for the season, Mike de Kock’s grey Redoute’s Choice colt Mujallad found a timeous return to best last time when showing good speed to beat the capable Prince Of Kahal in an MR 87 Handicap over 160m further. His 3,75 length unplaced run in the Lebelo Sprint at his penultimate jump can best be ignored as he was in need of that. The Azzie yard has been in a rich vein of form and the smart Var 4yo Rivarine ran on well from off the gallop in the Lebelo Sprint, when going down 1,50 lengths to Alfolk. The 7yo Greasepaint ran a cracker there and held him by a short head. There should be little between the two again although Rivarine has the greater scope to go on and improve on his 5 wins from 19 starts. Argonaut 4yo Clever Guy looks quite nicely in at best but has only run once in eight months, when dropping out after showing pace at the Vaal last time. He should improve on that. Former SA top-rated speedster Talktothestars returns from an unsuccessful raid on the Diadem and Cape Flying Championship down South. The ten-time winner has not won in ages but runs off a 103 – some way down from his lifetime peak of 121. If he arrives in a good space, he could mow this lot down with a late effort. Splendid Garden was beaten 1,25 lengths by Mujallad at his penultimate start and meets the De Kock youngster on 2kg better terms. The speedy 6yo is edging back to his better form and strips a fit galloper with a weight that

could see him fighting for a cheque. The top-weighted Gr2 Senor Santa Stakes winner Champagne Haze has not won in close on a year and looks to have it all to do on his current form. Clint Binda’s 3yo Whorly Whorly carries a handy 52kgs and ran a decent fourth in the Lebelo Sprint – but meets Splendid Garden on a kilo worse terms. The 5yo Pure Blonde ran 6th in this race last year but has maintained a consistent line of form and will strip fit on Saturday. Gokhan Terzi’s Tandava ran on strongly to win a Vaal 100m handicap last time where he beat the 3yo Rebel’s Champ. His earlier form suggests that he may battle with the step up in class, The 4yo Sporting Monarch has proven consistent with some decent showings to class sprinters. He meets Tandava on 2kgs better terms for a length beating last time and should strip fitter as he ran there after a four month break. Angel’s Power made a respiratory noise when unplaced in the Lebelo Sprint. An in and out sort at best, he does run well for Piere Strydom and has a quartet chance. Eightfold Path 3yo Brigtnumberten is a youngster on the improve and this three-time winner has faced weaker with a good recent run of form. He now goes into deeper waters with 52kgs on his back. Last year’s winner Wrecking Ball beat Pure Blonde 1,25 lengths last time out but has to cope with a 3kg turnaround in the weights, which could be a stopper. She is a speedball though and always dangerous if things go her way over this trip. Her stablemate Queen Laurie has lost form recently and doesn’t look likely to threaten. A tough handicap with the proven brigade taken on a few decent youngsters with scope. Mujallad and Rivarine could be the two to fight things out, with Pure Blonde and Talktothestars in the firing line. There are a good few in between that could pop up. Go wide in the exotics!

The Great Merit Debate

The 2018 SA Triple Crown and SA Triple Tiara will get under way at Turffontein on Saturday 3 March with the running of the R1 million Gr2 Gauteng Guineas and the R500 000 Gr2 Gauteng Fillies Guineas.

While the Cape Guineas and Cape Fillies Guineas were run as alternate first legs of the rich series, the winners of those races are not amongst the bumper entry received on Monday. Mike De Kock has a powerhouse 7 entries in the first leg of the SA Triple Crown, which also includes KZN challengers Monks Hood and the Frank Robinson-trained Roy Had Enough. An interesting potential runner is Paul Peter star Majestic Mambo, who is unbeaten in three starts and steps up after winning the Listed Sea Cottage Stakes at his last start. The R7-million SA Triple Crown for 3-year-olds is the richest series of races in Africa. The Gauteng Guineas is the alternate first leg, with the R2million Gr1 SA Classic run over 1800m on Saturday 7 April the second leg. The third leg is the R2-million Gr1 SA Derby run over 2450m at Turffontein on Saturday 5 May 2018. A bonus of R2 million will be paid to the owner of the horse that wins all three legs of the Triple Crown. Piere Strydom will ride Dean Kannemeyer’s unbeaten Gr3 Flamboyant Stakes winner Hashtagyolo in the Gauteng Fillies Guineas. The smart daughter of Dynasty was ridden by Anthony Delpech in all of her three wins from three starts in KZN, but Kannemeyer has confirmed that due to contractual commitments, he was obliged to find a new rider. Mike de Kock has 5 of the 23 entrants for the first leg of the SA Triple Tiara, including Canford Cliffs daughter Fish River, who won the Gr3 Three Troikas Stakes in such fine style at her last start.

Baron Set To Make Dubai Impact

The 2017 Sun Met winner Whisky Baron looks likely to very possibly be the only South Africa representative on Dubai World Cup night on 31 March. Speaking on the Winning Ways Show on Monday evening, trainer Mike De Kock said that things were not looking hopeful right now of him having a runner. But he spoke highly of the Brett Crawford charge Whisky Baron. “Whisky Baron is the most exciting prospect. I think Brett is aiming him at the Zabeel Mile on 22 February. He is a high quality magnificent beast. He is laid back and sound – a big strong bugger! He is definitely a horse that looks capable of holding his own against the Godolphin powerhouse and the top UK horses. You need a horse rated 115 plus to be competitive on the night,” said De Kock. The major prep for Dubai World Cup day is the Super Saturday meeting, held on 10 March 2018. Whisky Baron could be aimed at the Sheema Classic or Dubai Duty Free – both $5 million races - on Dubai World Cup day. The biggest sporting and social occasion on the Dubai calendar, the US$30m race day is held at Meydan Racecourse on 31 March. It is the conclusion of the UAE racing season, featuring nine high-class races including six Gr 1 and three Gr2 contests. Racing is brought to a close by the the US$10m Dubai World Cup, won in 2017 by Arrogate.

Handicappers. Horseracing’s great unwashed. Those calculating handcuffed men in suits who are damned if they do and damned if they don’t…

wise man once suggested that printing money isn’t solving the problem caused by printing money. So is the National Horseracing Authority’s recent decision to implement an across the board increase of 6 merit rating points for all horses really going to prove the elixir to right the perceived imbalances of an inherently effective, yet sometimes flawed and often reconditioned system? The meddling in the supposed educated and subjective science of handicapping goes back many years and often gives the layman observer a sense of panic paralysis by analysis at play – over elaboration and an obsessive dissection of factors seemingly the key. But things appeared to be reaching some sanity in 2010 when an NHA Sub-Committee comprising Robert Bloomberg, Tony Rivalland and Vee Moodley drafted amendments to the Handicapping Guidelines. This had the effect of limiting the discretion of our handicappers and kept them on the straight and narrow. Some argued that it was a show of professional no confidence and a removal of any carte blanche pretensions for the much maligned men in grey suits. At that time the ratings of horses in Gauteng , Western Cape and KwaZulu-Natal were upped by 3 points in order to bring them in line with international ratings. In order to account for the ‘creep’ factor in ratings, it was further decided to decrease the ratings of horses in the Eastern Cape by 3 points and to maintain relativity to leave the ratings in Kimberley, on the Vaal Sand and Zimbabwe unchanged. In 2013 a similar wave of the magic increased ratings wand was summararily reversed after industry resistance. In simple terms, it was found that there was an over-reliance on correcting the slippage factor in merit based handicapping by simply increasing the population by 6 points. The change of heart came

Suyoof Can Improve In an environment that is getting infinitely more competitive every year, Mike de Kock described the Meydan dirt track and its demands as a ‘war of attrition’ in an interview on the Winning Ways Show earlier this week. De Kock has been racing with great success in this region over many years but alluded to some of the demands of the richly endowed, but crammed, ten weeks of racing. He will be happy to saddle two turf runners at Meydan at the sixth meeting on Thursday, where he sends out Suyoof and Icy Trail in the final event on the programme. The duo run in the $125 000 Jaguar E – Pace Handicap over a mile. Both horses are likely to come on from their first run this term and De Kock will be hoping that the Secretariat Stakes winner Suyoof can repeat his powerful finish for jockey Jim Crowley in the 2017 Al Naboodah Kaeser

Compressor Trophy run over 1400m on turf, which he won by a neck from Bravo Zolo with stablemate Tahanee a short-head back in third. The 2016 Premier Trophy winner Icy Trail will need to improve on what was a slightly disappointing effort at his first run here on 18 January, where he finished over 11 lengths behind Salsabeel. Last Thursday’s meeting was highlighted by the US$250,000 Gr2 Al Maktoum Challenge R2 sponsored by Gulf News over 1900m on the dirt. Won by Godolphin’s multiple Gr1 winner Thunder Snow, whose appropriately named half-sister Winter Lightning had landed the UAE 1000 Guineas earlier in the evening.

about after it was felt that underlying issues may have been better solved by determining a systemic review of the Merit Rating system rather than a quick fix increase. In April 2016, following more unhappiness and frustration with the way the handicappers were doing their jobs, further handicapping guideline amendments were introduced – so to the handcuffs were added ankle shackles, to further limit any creativity. Now in 2018, the meddling starts all over again with the NHA suggesting that over the last few racing seasons, a general decline in the Merit Ratings was observed, especially in relation to the large group of horses rated 70 and less. They did an analysis of average ratings of the racing population from August 2010 to present and decided on the current domestic rating increase to stretch the population thereby reducing the crowding in the lower divisions. But isn’t this as a direct result of the legislative handcuffs that prevent our handicappers from dishing and withdrawing merit, where it’s rightly due? For those concerned about the impact on our top-rated horses of this latest increase, there will be no international embarrassment like that suffered years ago as the higher rated gallopers now have shadow international ratings. These days an international panel of handicappers provide input when meeting in July and December of every year. “Our bigger races are rated by a host of international handicappers – these are published on the Longines World’s Best Racehorse rankings. Every country has unique circumstances and the exchange, discussion and different viewpoints ensure there is a realistic balance maintained,’’ says NHA Handicapping Chief Roger Smith. So while we seem unable to find a workable balance with a 75 year old system, should we bring back race figures? SP Reader John Bryant suggests

Mike Wanklin that those who would like to see the old Race Figure system back must remember that this system has nothing to do with ability, but only the number of wins. Maiden colts had a RF of 18 (fillies 15) and 6 points were added to the RF for each win. So before the Met, Oh Susanna would have had a RF of 33 and Last Winter 42. Neither would have come close to getting into the Met! With a RF system, many winners of the Epsom Derby and Oaks would not have qualified! In the ‘old days’ with the RF system, the 3YO’s had to have at least 6 wins to get into the July – horses like Sea Cottage, Naval Escort, In Full Flight etc. Many trainers were very disappointed when their champion 3YO did not get into the July because their RF was too low. Respected handicapper Mike Wanklin writes that race figure handicapping had two great flaws. Firstly – every horse was assumed useless and started at the bottom of the pile - Colts 18 and fillies 13. Win you get plus 6 to 24/19 etc. It didn’t matter if you were a 2yo – 3yo or older maiden ? Then up by 6 points for each win thereafter (in the main – some exceptions for feature wins etc). Secondly and alluded to above there was no account for the immaturity of the younger horse in the rating system. Now the MR system is not perfect. There is no way any system for handicapping can be perfect. Ask any golfer ! But what system is fair? That is the question. - This editorial was carried in the SP Digest issue 2433

Turf Is Tops Nothing beats top-class turf. So says Mike de Kock, who added that he was not in favour of polytrack surfaces in major racing centres. “Gold Circle were warned in advance before installing their track. They deteriorate in the sun. They are for wet and cold climates. For basically cheap racing and the cheaper horses. They have been used to good effect in England for their bad horses in the wet season. Thank goodness sanity prevailed at Durbanville when they went the turf route. That was a good decision!” he added.

For Luck’s Sake

New PE trainer Emmanuel Kaknis made a flying start when he saddled a winner from his first five runners at Fairview last Friday. The longshot For Luck’s Sake flew home under Bryan Claassen. “’He was working well and his earlier form suggested he had a shout,” said an elated Emmanuel, who has just been granted another 28 boxes at Fairview. “We are open for business – any owner or breeder with a horse in a major centre looking for a change of scenery. We are happy to talk leases, shares and syndications," said Emmanuel. His contact number is 072 644 4494 or email cargotorquesales@me.com

Highlands four-times Equus Outstanding Stallion Dynasty enjoyed three winners over the past weekend. The Tara Laing trained Trees Of Green kicked the weekend off when running out a courageous winner over 1400m at Fairview. Two eye catching three-year-old winners at Kenilworth and Turffontein on Saturday rounded off the treble, with Dynasty’s Blossom making it two wins from her last three races when she outclassed some smart older rivals to win over 2000m. At Turffontein Dynasty son Noble Secret booked his Gauteng Guineas berth with a smart win for Mike de Kock.

The Series

Plans are afoot to launch a multimillion-pound team series staged at some of the UK’s leading racecourses in 2019. It’s a unique new racing competition in which 12 branded teams compete over eight consecutive Thursdays at different Gr1 racecourses around the country, in an early summer evening televised slot. Each team has a squad of 30 horses under the direction of leading trainers with four jockeys. Each raceday will have six handicaps, with all 48 races having prize money in excess of £100,000. The competition will operate on a points system, similar to F1 motor racing to determine the winners of the team and jockeys’ championships. Can it work?

Remembering Tommy Hotspur

T

With so much of our racing provenance having fallen by the wayside over the years, it’s comforting to still see one of our turf greats commemorated by having a race named after him. Better yet, at the grand age of 26, the great Tommy Hotspur is still alive and well and retired to a farm outside Johannesburg. He has only had one owner since leaving the race track and with this year’s renewal of the race coming up, I thought it a good time to catch up with Ashleigh Hughes to recount his story.

he flashy chestnut colt, by Harry Hotspur out of the Brer Rabbit mare, Tabitha Twitchet, was born on 1 November 1991. “Pure speed on speed,” comments Ashleigh. Unfortunately Tommy didn’t have good front legs, and was rejected by the National Yearling and National 2yo Sale selection committee and relegated to the farm. The following year, Gary Alexander went to view yearlings at Mr Beck's farms and noticed the skinny 2yo in a paddock. He was immediately drawn to the colt, but Mr Beck tried to talk him out of the little chestnut, due to those poorly conformed legs. However, Gary was determined and eventually a deal was struck and Tommy headed up to Turffontein to race in the interests of Len Salzman, Greg Sadie and Brian Melnick. It was one of those rare partnerships that simply worked. Despite requiring skilful management, Tommy had 12 starts for Gary, winning his first 8 races in a row. He followed up with 2 close seconds and then posted another 2 wins, including the 1997 Gr1 Computaform Stakes, which saw him break the track record, covering the Gosforth Park 1000 metres in 56,37 seconds. Tommy transferred to David Ferraris for his next 4 starts, but never matched his former form and he was retired in March 1998 with 10 wins and 4 places from his total of 16 lifetime starts. Tommy came back to Gary Alexander and met Ashleigh when she joined the yard in 1998. “Obviously Tommy was the muchloved stable star,” she remembers. “He stayed in the first box right outside Gary's office. I got to know him well, and became quite literally

besotted with the unassuming and gentle milky-tea coloured chestnut.”

Match Race

tired of racing. He was retired immediately.”

Precious cargo

A few weeks after the incident, the Alexander yard received a top Zimbabwean horse named Blue Collar. Unfortunately, the horse had sustained a tendon injury on the journey down and would have to be retired without even setting foot on the track. Ashleigh told Gary that she wanted Blue Collar as a riding horse. “Gary quizzed me on where I would be stabling the horse, which farrier I would use, which vet – it was almost an interrogation!” she laughs. “In May 1999, Gary and Dean called while I was in Durban, with two horses raiding at Clairwood Park. They told me to check out a smallholding in De Deur which they described as ‘a plot with ducks, chicken and sheep’, to see if it would be a suitable rehoming prospect. “I was not very impressed,” says Ashleigh, “when I asked which horse it was for, they said Tommy Hotspur. I burst into tears and said that I would rather have Tommy than Blue Collar, if I'd known there was an option. They spent two days teasing me, but in the end I found out that Blue Collar was never coming to me, and that Tommy was going to be mine from the start - it was just Gary’s way of checking how much I really wanted Tommy!”

In February 1999, the owners of Golden Loom challenged Tommy Hotspur to a R500k match race. It was too tempting to turn down and Gary put Tommy back into light work. Being a bit of a handful at the track, Tommy was only ridden by either the late Boyi Mbele or Albert Ngwenya, both Indunas in the yard. “Boyi worked at Alexander yard from 1997 until he passed away on 26 December last year and always referred to Tommy as ‘the fastest horse in my life’” recalls Ashleigh fondly. A few months before the match race, Gary arranged a timed 800m gallop on Turffontein’s front straight of the ‘course proper’. Ashleigh explains that the inside course was Second Career not even in existence yet and this The Alexanders were way too was the first time home stretch gallops had been allowed in many fond of Tommy to part with him years, but “this was Tommy Hotspur - straightaway, so he stayed at the permission was granted!” Dean was yard for several more months and stationed at the 800m, stopwatch Ashleigh actually went to her first few in hand while Gary and Ashleigh dressage shows straight out of the watched from the grandstand. “Boyi racing yard. “I used to school him and have dressage was in the irons on the staff and Tommy took Tommy still "reefs" for a lessons soccer field, much off like a rocket, gallop up that track to the chagrin of with Boyi battling the grooms!” to hold him. But After spending 18 months of his then Gary took a sharp breath. At the 300m mark Boyi seemed to second career from the racing yard, pull Tommy up, mid gallop.

Boyi shouted that Tommy was retired, but very accomplished ok but, "he doesn't want to run any dressage rider,” explains Ashleigh. Most of the other liveries were more'. It turned out that Tommy geared himself down during the keen Eventers and Ashleigh and gallop. He was not unsound, just Tommy tried their hands at the

Parade of honour

In February 2007 Tommy was invited to parade before the Tommy Hotspur Sprint. “My intention was just to walk around the parade ring, which was still behind the grandstand back then,” says Ashleigh. “I had two grooms holding him while I rode, but he was going crazy. It was the day Graham Hawkins did his last commentary in Joburg and he asked me via the vet's radio if I could please parade in front of the grandstand. I reluctantly said yes, but Tommy was completely unsettled. He was a dripping mess and fly jumping metres into the air. I will never forget his groom Andries looking up at me and saying, ‘you must get off him now, because he will kill you!’ I jumped off, and was taunted by the punters at the rail, but that's the only time Tommy has ever been that upset he clearly did not want to be on the track ever again and he never has,” she says firmly.

Looking after the legend

Tommy’s conformation difficulties

Asked what it’s like to own a champion, Ashleigh says, “I cannot explain adequately what an honour it is to own a horse of Tommy's calibre. To have a Gr3 race named in his honour is the ultimate tip of the hat to his supreme talent, especially now that it has been moved to his home track, Turffontein. To this day he receives "fan mail via his Facebook page, and people love the odd update on him. For his 25th birthday I uploaded all his wins to his page and Jeff Lloyd commented on his Computaform win that he had shown his family the footage of the race. He wrote, ‘Thanks Ashleigh, that opened my boys' eyes. What speed he had.’" The late, great Jimmy Lithgow once described Tommy as “The nearest thing to a Ferrari on the racetrack’ adding “No horse in my memory has come close to his blistering early speed and over 1000 metres he has no equal in the country.” Saturday’s field will be following in very large footprints indeed.

Former Mayfair Trainer Lerena Back To Best Soldiers On

Pauline Herman Photography

There is not a lot in racing that can bring a tear to the eye of the Eastern Cape’s tough-as-teak Scots born lady trainer. But after an upside down two months, who could really blame Tara Laing from feeling a flood of emotion as she unsaddled the 6yo Dynasty entire Trees Of Green at Fairview last Friday.

T

Ryan Munger has Trees Of Green in control as Greg Cheyne and Captain Marmalade challenge

he former Mayfair Speculators private trainer is not yet through the storm that engulfed her business in early December. But like a true fighter, she hasn’t curled up and cried herself to sleep. Packaging horses and finding new owners, she has been on a mission to ensure that her business is not listed amongst the collateral damage also rans of one of the biggest shock-waves to hit South African horseracing this century – and maybe even last century. That’s all history now. Tara’s not

looking back and blaming anybody. Having set her sights on resurrecting her career, looking after her son and his education, and maybe even reinventing herself, Trees Of Green’s gutsy win in the MR 80 Handicap, was a light at the end of the tunnel for the seasoned horsewoman. Having his second run for her former top jockey fiance and key member of her team, Gavin Venter, the 6yo dug deep under a balanced ride from the underrated Ryan Munger to clock up his fifth career win. It was his second run in the Gavin Venter silks, after being narrowly

beaten on 24 January. It was also Gavin’s first winner for Tara. “I believe in fairytales,” an emotional Tara told the Sporting Post on Friday. “My son Ewan was just 14 when he started riding work. They have a remarkable bond – this horse has looked after him.Before he jumps on the school bus in the morning, he is in Trees’ stable. They love each other!” Tara says that when the entire came on the market, Ewan came to her and asked that she not let him go. “I was obviously not in a financial position to make an offer, and so Ewan and I both looked at Gavin (Venter), all the while bawling our eyes out! He got on the phone to Derek Brugman immediately and did the deal. I cannot thank Derek and Gavin enough for making Ewan a very happy young man. And for ensuring a lovely horse stays in my yard!” Tara tells that it gets even better as the 16 year old Ewan watched Friday’s race at school with his classmates cheering Trees Of Green home. In the style of a typical owner, she received a whatsapp after the race from her son : ’Tell Gavin I’m happy with Trees Of Green’s run’. That was followed quickly by a more emotional: ’I’m soooooooooo happy!’ Bred by Gary Player Stud, Trees Of Green cost R3,6 million at the National Yearling Sale. He has won 5 races with 7 places from 24 starts and has earned a shade over R300 000. The well-named son of Dynasty is out of the six-time winning Complete Warrior mare, Wonderful World. A clever name – take a listen to the song below! Trees Of Green was the first leg of a Tara Laing double. Callan Murray rode Ratso Rizzo to his maiden win in the fourth – at his 17th attempt.

Last Winter Goes Global While he is entered to run in the Listed Jet Master Stakes at Kenilworth on Saturday 24 February, Sun Met runner-up Last Winter is likely to enter quarantine at Kenilworth Racecourse in the course of this month en route to an international campaign.

F

orm Bloodstock’s Jehan Malherbe, who is acting on behalf of the smart 4yo’s owners Khaya Stables, told the Sporting Post on Monday that flight confirmations had been received and that Last Winter would depart for Mauritius some time in March.

“We are mindful that, given that the July antepost betting has been published, the betting public want to know what the situation is. The fact is that the connections have decided that they want Last Winter to undertake an international campaign. The paperwork has been done and the flights have been confirmed,” he added. Malherbe said that ironically the handicapper had played his own part in making the decision to travel internationally. “They gave him a 119 after the Met. He is a 2000m horse. So what is left here for him? The President’s Champions Challenge at Turffontein in May and then maybe the Champions Cup at Greyville in July,” he added. And what about the Vodacom Durban July?

“While things can change, I would not have recommended to Khaya Stables that they even go the July route, frankly. We would have to give lumps of weight all round. On the balance of things, we believe he deserves a chance to go out there and take them on in Hong Kong and Dubai. It is an exciting time for an owner who has been a staunch supporter of South African horseracing for many years,” he said. The leading bloodstock consultant confirmed that Last Winter would do 28 days quarantine at Kenilworth, then 60 days in Mauritius before flying to England where he would join the horse population, and not be quarantined, but be confined to that country for 30 days. Last Winter will be trained in his overseas campaign by Dean Kannemeyer, who has done a splendid job with the lightly raced colt so far. “It is an honour and a privilege to take this horse onto the world stage. Naturally we will be relying on the experience and expertise of those who have done this often. It’s an exciting time for Khaya Stables and Dean Kannemeyer Racing,” said Kannemeyer.

L

Coming off a break of over a month, former SA champion jockey Gavin Lerena bounced back with a vengeance at the Vaal on Saturday, when he rode a hat-trick from his first three rides.

erena had not ridden in a race since 4 January because of the debilitating symptoms of Glandular Fever. The Epstein-Barr virus caused him extreme fatigue and the only cure was rest. Back in work for a few weeks, he decided to take four rides on Saturday and proved stronger than ever. He won on Twice A Lady for trainer Candice Dawson in the second, the Australian-bred Greenwood Drive for Robbie Sage

in the third, and on Secret Potion for Geoff Woodruff in the fourth. Secret Potion took a particularly hard ride and Gavin was blowing afterwards. “I must thank my family for all the support, and particularly my loving wife Vicky and my Grandfather. Also to David Safi’s wife for her help – I won’t mention what she did, but it worked!” Gavin has ridden 57 winners with a 21% win strike-rate this season so far. He is 12th on the national log – that’s at close of the Vaal fourth on Saturday.

Wheel Of Fortune

Ashley Fortune, wife of former champion jockey Andrew Fortune, took her written trainer’s licence exam last Wednesday and plans to start operating a stable in Gauteng soon.

Tabnews reports that Fortune, formerly Ashley Panter, was assistant trainer to highly successful Noelene Peech in Zimbabwe before performing the same function with Joey Ramsden for 18 months after moving to this country in 2008. “This is something I have always wanted to do and with Andrew not riding now, I have the time. I need to stay involved in racing, and a lot of people have said Andrew should become a trainer, so I will welcome his input,” she commented. The irrepressible Fortune insists with a laugh he “has had nothing to do with this decision”. The chances of the former champion making a comeback are less positive. After a partial knee replacement a while back he said: “It still shakes after a couple of rides. I’m 50 now, I’ve had five operations on my right knee, and I have arthritis so I don’t know what the future holds in terms of riding competitively again.” Whatever his future may hold it is heartening to know the Fortune name will still have an active presence in South African racing.

Another Lerena In The Fray The Lerena family name is to South African horseracing what braaivleis, rugby and sunny skies are to our lifestyle. The newest member of the Lerena clan to step up to the plate is 28 year old Steven, who now trains out of Randjesfontein. The 28 year old has quite a pedigree. He is the son of the legendary trainer Spike, a cousin to jockeys Gavin and Brandon, and nephew to former top jockey Tex. Most of his work is being ridden by another cousin in young apprentice Dylan Lerena. Steven’s business partner is yet another Lerena, in South African Cruiserweight Boxing Champion, Kevin, aka ‘The KO Kid’, whose father Anton was a trainer in 1980’s. So why the decision to train? “I have been exposed to horseracing since a young age. I rode work early on and then when I became too tall and heavy, I started working in the yard and became a stable employee. I have an excellent grounding and the

best brains in the business to pick on, in need! So my cousin Kevin and I decided to make a go of it. His wife Gina is on board too and she is a great help all round.” Steven has already had a few places and is itching to saddle his first winner. “We only have 9 horses but we have boxes and are keen to get new owners on board. We have got good support from Logan Pillay and have started a few syndicates for younger people to get started. It’s an expensive game to get involved in and we’d like to encourage the syndicate option.” Steven was down in KZN for the Shongweni Sale on Tuesday. He invites interested parties and prospective owners to contact him via info@lerenaracing.co.za.

Stuart Pettigrew

UNRUFFLED

S

Having retired from professional riding in 1981 and paid his dues in the assistant ranks, Stuart Pettigrew ventured out on his own in 1991 and has quietly and steadily carved a niche for himself from his Randjesfontein base. The words at the top of his webpage read ‘Hard work. Dedication.’ He has also found success by believing in horses that others might pass over and with three Gr1 successes already to his credit, looks to have found another ‘good ‘un’ in Tony Ruffel Stakes winner, Surcharge.

tuart was born in the UK, but immigrated to Africa with his family when he was 6. The racing bug bit early. “My Dad worked for Borrowdale Park. Kids were allowed, so my brother and I went racing at a young age. My brother wanted to be a jockey and went to the Academy and then I went too.” Stuart’s older brother Graham also rode successfully for a number of years and then moved back to the UK, working as a work rider for the Mark Johnson yard. Stuart joined the Academy in 1977, alongside the likes of Kevin Shea and Grant Kotzen. He rode for 4 seasons, ending on a high as champion apprentice in Rhodesia and then hung up his boots. After working as stable employee to Keith Chant in Zimbabwe, Stuart joined Roy Magner for 9 years and finally went out on his own in 1991. He got a barn at Randjesfontein and has been there ever since.

The yard Stuart has a yard of 50 stables, although he’s not currently full and it’s something of a sore point. “It’s hard to get owners and the smaller people are battling. At the moment I’ve got 36 horses, 19 are in training and the rest are unraced 2yo’s. I’ve had 19 winners this season, I’ve got a win percentage of 19% and my place statistics are 58% and I just can’t get horses,” he exasperates. “I won the Summer Cup with Tyson, the SA Fillies Classic with Spiced Gold and the Germiston November with Golden Globe. I’ve won Gr1’s and I’ve been consistently good every season, but people want to be with big names.” “A trainer is only as good as their horses and there are some very good trainers out there, capable trainers that can get horses to where they need to go and they don’t get opportunities because they’re having to train bad horses and then get branded bad trainers.”

Gr1 CV Stuart has earned a reputation for getting the best out of a horse and particularly with making the most out of some unlikely – and inexpensive - prospects. His first Gr1 win came just four years into his career, when he saddled the Zandvliet Stud bred Golden Globe to a Germiston November Handicap win over the mighty National Emblem in 1995. Golden Globe was a R18k purchase on the National Yearling Sales, who Stuart describes as a lovely, big strong horse. “He eventually won 10 races – you don’t see that too

often anymore,” he remarks. “I’d only been training for a few years and we won the Germiston November Handicap. It was run at Germiston in those days, before it closed and the race moved to Newmarket. He was my first Gr1 winner and won as a longshot, beating National Emblem.” Next came Tyson, the wonderful son of Silvino out of a daughter of Sledgehammer, who won the 2004 Gr1 Gomma Gomma Summer Cup. Tyson was another bargain purchase who was led through the sales ring and bought back by his breeder for R20k. “He was a wonderful horse,” remembers Stuart. “He won 7 in a row at one stage including the Summer Cup. He eventually won 10 and was then sold to Dubai.” His most recent Gr1 triumph was with Spiced Gold who won the 2010 Fillies Classic. The daughter of Kahal cost the princely sum of R50k. “So that’s what I have to win Gr1’s with,” says Stuart proudly, “Not R1 million, R2 million, R3 million horses, imports or anything like that. I train very cheap horses.”

Surcharge The Varsfontein-bred Surcharge (Gimmethegreenlight – Congestion Charge) was the first lot to be led through the ring for the 2016 BSA Val de Vie Yearling Sale. Not attracting the attention he deserved, his breeders took him home and offered him as lot 48 at the 2016 BSA National Yearling Sales, where he was knocked down to Ian van Schalkwyk for R200k. How did they pick him? “Ian (van Schalkwyk) goes to every sale.

He looks though the catalogue and selects what he likes on pedigree. I go as the trainer and try and pick out any faults and if I find any, Ian takes them off the list. If I’m happy, it’s a combination of him on breeding and me on a combination of conformation and experience.” How does Stuart find his gems at such bargain prices? “First of all, budget automatically takes a lot out of my looking equation. I look at the lesser bred horses, so I’m looking with the guys with the smaller buying power and the smaller trainers. The big guys never look at my horses – they’re not good enough for them,” he says flatly. “If I see a horse that’s a lovely specimen, I put that into consideration before the breeding. If a horse is well bred, but not a good specimen, I won’t buy it, but I will take a chance on a nice specimen. That’s how I pick.” What made Surcharge catch his eye? “It was just the way he was brought to the sales. He was an imposing, beautiful specimen of a horse and what really caught my attention was the way he walked. He’s a great, great walker and everything’s in the right place.”

Stuart has done all the work with Surcharge, including starting him under saddle and prepping him for the 2016 CTS Emperor’s Palace Ready To Run sale. “We did not push him and just did enough to get him on the sale to qualify for the sales race and then buy him back. I actually had 7 horses on the sale and bought them all back.” Why go the sales race route? “For that sort of money, it’s a good sale,” he says honestly.

Early promise

– they’re all equally important, but my biggest supporter has been Ian van Schalkwyk. Without him I wouldn’t be training a horse like Surcharge. Ian is my biggest client and has most of the horses in my yard.” The two have a longstanding relationship that began many years ago. “We just get on very well. He’s got a lot of respect for me and I’ve got a lot of respect for him, I listen to what he’s got to say and he listens to what I’ve got to say. Everything we do, we do together.”

The colt repaid all their early faith in Jockey him and Stuart said he showed ability from the day they started doing fast Surcharge has also registered most work with him. of his wins under Piere Strydom. “I thought he would win first time “Piere’s ridden a lot of winners for out, but he ran a good second” me,” says Stuart. “Piere knows (over 1200m at the Vaal on 6 June what I like and what I dislike. At 2017 under Gunter Wrogemann). the moment he’s riding very well for Surcharge then threaded together me, and while he’s riding well, he’ll three wins in a row before taking his continue riding for me.” place in the Emperor’s Palace Ready Good looking To Run Stakes on 4 November, Commenting that like many jumping from starting gate 15 under progeny, Piere Strydom. “I believe he could Gimmethegreenlight have won the Ready To Run if he’d Surcharge is a particularly good looking horse. “Have you ever seen an ugly drawn well,” Stuart muses. He bounced back to win the good horse? Good horses catch your Listed Secretariat Stakes under eye. He’s a special horse and catches everyone’s eye. I Gavin Lerena don’t know why he on 2 December, I’ve won Gr1’s and I’ve didn’t catch anyone followed up with been consistently good else’s eye at the the Gr3 Tony Ruffel every season, but people sale, but thank God on 3 February and didn’t!” now has 5 wins want to be with big names heAlthough it’s still and a place early days, are there any aspirations for from his 7 career starts. “Ian and I have discussed sending him to stud? Stuart explains every run and after every race, that the colt has an exceptionally good we sit down and discuss the pedigree and confirms that they will try run and look at the programme to keep him entire as long as possible. and decide what we want to “I’m not quick on gelding, but if I feel a do and where we want to go. horse needs it, I will. He’s not coltish, We discuss everything together. he just likes his racing, goes in and His mission for this season was does his job.” Which makes life a lot the Tony Ruffel, the Guineas and easier. The rest of his string are young the Classic. That’s all that’s been discussed so far and after the horses and Stuart says emphatically that he is not a 2yo trainer. “I don’t Classic we’ll speak again.” “All the owners in my yard need to push 2yo’s, so at this stage are very important to me – it’s too early to tell if any of them will whether they have one be anything.” Of his older string, he horse, 50% of a horse picks out Walter Smoothie. “I think he could be a Derby contender.” Soldier On is pronounced “a nice horse. He won one and ran 2 places from 4 starts and ran a very good 2nd last time,” he says with satisfaction. There’s a promising filly called Gottalottaluv who has placed second, second and first who Stuart has earmarked as an Oaks contender, although he is quick to emphasise that he means contender, rather than indicating that she might have designs on a cheque.

Support Stuart is also sponsored by Hollywood Bets, who he says have been a valuable support. “They supply us with books on race day, overalls for the grooms - I think they’re great. My assistant, Nicolas Titise, loves it. He goes to races with his Hollywood shirts and caps and always refers to them as ‘my sponsor!’”. Outside of racing, Stuart is married to Lauren for 31 years and they have a son Ryan, who manages their website. “He loves his racing, but has never been involved in the yard. The two of them are the biggest supporters in my life.”

Stepping Up In Trip

d ’s Top Rate Last Week 'S winners incl. G ATIN SPEED R WON 6/1

A review of the week's best SPEEDRATINGS

Two From Two Scottsville 4 February A juvenile plate over 1000m got proceedings underway in Pietermaritzburg on Sunday and here we saw a smart performance from the second favourite VALLA-REE. An easy four length winner of her only previous racecourse appearance, the daughter of Var was taken straight to the front by apprentice Dennis Schwarz and led throughout. She was always in command and won going away by three and three quarters. A MR88 Handicap topped the bill and in what was by far the faster of the two 1950m events we saw a comfortable victory for HEAD HONCHO. Adopting a change of tactics here, Andre Nel’s charge set the pace. He raced two lengths clear for most of the journey and won without any anxious moments by a length and a quarter. Well weighted SONAR ACTIVE caught the eye running on strongly late to fill third position in this race. The faster of the two maiden plates over 1200m was the boy’s affair in which GOLDEN PHEASANT got off the mark. He got away well when the gates opened and soon up handy raced prominent throughout. He was ridden to lead as they approached the 200m marker and with the rest some five lengths adrift he comfortably accounted for the front running SOCRATES by a length and a quarter. TITBITS A very easy winner of all three starts since relocating to KZN, REDEEMER won the MR81 Handicap over 1600m going away by six and three quarters.

Sealed With A Kiss Vaal 6 February Four of the eight races on the classic track on Tuesday were run over 1000m and finding her form in the fastest of these was KISSABLE in the MR78 Handicap. Racing off a mark some 16 points below that of her earlier best, Paul Matchett’s charge was soon at the head of affairs. She kept on determinedly at the business end of the race and beat the always handy ILLEGAL fair and square. The only other distance to stage more than one race was 1600m where surprisingly the faster of the two handicaps was the MR63 affair won by SILVER DUCHESS. Nibbled at throughout the day into 67/20 from 20/1, Terry Lowe’s charge raced in midfield for most of the journey. She was ridden to lead shortly after passing the 300m marker and kept on strongly in the closing stages of the race to beat the running on WHITEOUT by a half. In terms of distance the easiest victory on the card was registered by SAVITAR in the opening work rider’s maiden event over 1000m. Having his first run after being gelded Weiho Marwing’s charge was sporting blinkers for the first time and found good support in the betting market. Soon up handy, Savitar put his head in front 300m out and won well by two and a quarter. TITBITS TANDAVA fairly flew below the distance when coming from the rear to win the MR86 Handicap over 1000m. Newcomer MADEMOISELLE won the maiden plate for the girls over 1000m going away by a length and a half.

Chances To Shine

Greyville 7 February Wednesday’s fare on the poly track was a moderate one as could be seen by the MR73 Handicap being the feature. Just eight went to post and a in time some 2,61 seconds faster than the barrier trial, the well handicapped JE SUIS SILVER registered her fourth career victory. A few lengths off the pace going through the 400m, Tony Rivalland’s charge ran on stoutly in the closing stages of the race and in a classic finish she got up in the very last stride. The three 1400m races were all qualified maiden plates and in the quickest of these (they were all comparatively slow) the 18/10 favourite PARALLELOGRAM got off the mark. Always handy, the 3yo daughter of Lateral put her head in front 300m out and won comfortably by two and three quarters. The only other distance to stage more than one race was 1800m where in the slower of the two maiden events the well exposed MUTAWAARY scored a well overdue first success. Another to race handy, Kom Naidoo’s charge took command early in the straight and kept on strongly over the final 400m to keep the running on FIRE SONG at bay. TITBITS The 3yo LADY LI LAY gained her second win in eleven days over the course and distance when comfortably accounting for her ten rivals in the MR68 Handicap over 2000m.

The Gavin Van Zyl trained newcomer BOLD EAGLE was all the rage to win the opening maiden juvenile plate over 1000m on the outside track on Thursday and the son of Bold Silvano didn’t let down his supporters. Soon up handy in what was always a wide open affair, Bold Eagle took up the running 400m out and went on to score comfortably from the only filly in the race RUNNING BRAVE. In terms of prize money a Progress Plate topped the bill and in what proved to be the fastest of the six 1200m events on my clock, we saw an eye catching performance from the once very highly regarded AFRICA RISING. Positioned in midfield when the race began in earnest, Sean Tarry’s charge fairly flew below

the distance and got up very late to deny the front running PERA PALACE. The best bet on the card for many was NAUTIC SPIRIT in the girl’s division of the maiden 1200m and the daughter of Your Song didn’t let down her supporters. Backed into the red at the track, Paul Peter’s charge made all. She was always in command and drew clear easily over the final 300m to score by five and a quarter. TITBITS Backed into favouritism, the newcomer RIVER RAFTING had the rest well beaten when getting the better of the fancied DANCING QUEEN in the maiden juvenile plate for fillies over 1000m.

Gutsy Dream Vaal 10 February The Vaal staged its third meeting in the space of just five days on Thursday, with the action on this occasion taking place on the classic track. Three of the nine races were run over 1500m and stopping the clock in the fastest time amongst these was the well weighted WAITY KATIE in the MR68 Handicap. Racing off a mark some 22 points below that of her earlier best, despite winning last time out, the former Cape Town campaigner was always handy. She ran on strongly at the business end of the race and after a thrilling tussle with the more fancied REDBERRY WOOD she only got the verdict by the narrowest of margins. The faster of the two 2000m races was the MR76 affair in which the favourite SECRET POTION did the business. Positioned in the rear early on, Geoff Woodruff’s charge was ridden to lead 400m out by Gavin Lerena and just had enough in hand to beat the four timer seeking SUBTLE FORCE (finished best) by a neck. A MR92 Handicap over 1000m topped the bill and here victory went to the grey FREDERICO’S DREAM. A model of consistency, the Gimmethegreenlight filly raced up with the speed throughout. She ran on strongly over the final 400m and held off a wall of horses by three quarters. TITBITS GREENWOOD DRIVE came from the back when winning the maiden plate over 2000m going away by three and three quarters.

SPORTING POST • FRIDAY 16th - SUNDAY 18th FEBRUARY 2018

Champion sire - Western Winter

O

With the Cape Summer Season of 2017-2018 all but a thing of the past, it is an appropriate time to look back at some of the stars of the hugely exciting summer season.

ne name which regularly cropped up in race results, as a sire, sire of sires, and broodmare sire was former triple South African champion sire Western Winter. The son of Gone West may well have been unlucky not to record a second Met win - Western Winter’s son Yard-Arm won the Met back in 2004 - when his son Last Winter, also an unlucky loser of the G2 Premier Trophy, filled the runner up berth in the Gr1 Sun Met of 2018. The classically bred Last Winter, destined for an overseas campaign, is from his sire’s penultimate crop. This crop also includes top sprinter Bishop’s Bounty. The latter, whose full brother Brutal Force ran fourth in the Gr1 Betting World Cape Flying Championship earlier this year, added further glory to Western Winter’s Cape season when victorious in the Gr2 Khaya Stables Diadem Stakes. Bishop’s Bounty may now be aimed at the Gr1 Tsogo Sun Sprint later in the year. Bishop’s Bounty’s Gr1 winning full brother Red Ray, now at stud, was second in the Tsogo Sun Sprint back in 2014. Western Winter’s very last crop could well yet be represented by another big race winner, with the smart filly Fresnaye among its members. One of an exceptional bunch of 3yo fillies, Fresnaye, who is from the same family as another champion South African sire in Fort Wood, was third in both the Gr1 WSB Cape Fillies Guineas and Gr1

Cartier Paddock Stakes this season, both times behind subsequent Met winner Oh Susanna (Street Cry) and she could well pick up a decent race before she retires to the paddocks. Western Winter, who died in 2013 after complications following colic surgery, also enjoyed major success as a sire of sires and broodmare sire this Summer Season.

What A Splash His triple Equus Champion son What A Winter made a considerable impression, with the former Leading First Crop sire making a splash with both his three-year-olds and juveniles. What A Winter’s first crop, now three, include Dutch Philip and Magical Wonderland, who ran 1-3 in the CTS 1200, with Magical Wonderland having previously shown considerable class when sauntering home, against top class older rivals, in the Gr2 Cartier Sceptre Stakes. Her paternal half-brother Dutch Philip took his earnings to over R3.3 million when he won the CTS 1200 – in a field which included five graded stakes winners. What A Winter, who is currently South Africa’s Leading Sire of 2yos, is also sire of Agent Of Fortune, with that 2yo capturing the Kuda Sprint on debut. Western Winter’s influence as a broodmare sire was also well felt as his daughter Wintersweet made her mark, with her offspring lifting four features over the past few months. Wintersweet is dam of both Gr1 Forus Cape Guineas/Gr3 Cape

Top class 4yo - Last Winter

Leading new sire - What A Winter Classic hero Tap O’ Noth (Captain Al) and Gr3 Cape Summer Stayers/ Listed Woolavington Handicap victor Strathdon (Silvano).

Hong Kong Western Winter could well be represented by another major feature race winner as a broodmare sire, as he is damsire of leading Gr1HK Classic Cup contender Singapore Sling (Philanthropist). The Classic Cup is due to be run at Sha Tin, over 1800m, on Sunday 18 February. The triple champion sire’s final stats make Western Winter one of the better stallions to have stood in South Africa in recent years. Of his approximately 825 registered foals, 749 reached the racecourse and 614 have won at least once. Different sources state he had 86 or 87 stakes winners, which represent more than 10% of his foals. Modern day

statistics suggest any sire capable of throwing more than 5 or 6% stakes winners to foals is above average – which again underlines Western Winter’s considerable class as a stallion. His champions included a pair of sons named Horse Of The Year in Yard-Arm and Winter Solstice, as well as official Equus Champions Argonaut, Bad Girl Runs, Ice Cube and the above mentioned What A Winter. He was also an extremely versatile sire, with Western Winter responsible for Gr1 winners over 1000m (What A Winter) to 3200m (Reveille Boy).

Female Line Naysayers may have knocked Western Winter’s female line when he first retired to stud, but it should be remembered that he traced back to influential Canadian broodmare Nandi - dam of, among others, the

first stakes winner (Windfields) ever bred by the legendary E P Taylor. Interestingly, Western Winter’s Gr3 King’s Cup winning son Bulleting Home is closely inbred to his sire’s female line, with Bulleting Home being produced by a halfsister to Western Winter. Bulleting Home is thus inbred to Chilly Hostess - dam of Western Winter. Western Winter’s dam was a daughter of perhaps one of history’s more underappreciated stallions in Vice Regent. The latter, best known as sire of multiple champion US sire Deputy Minister, was champion sire in Canada 13 times and produced 60 stakes winners, amongst them a plethora of champions. Vice Regent is also damsire of US champions Boston Harbor (Capote) and Victory Gallop (Cryptoclearance), and Dubai World Cup hero Captain Steve (Fly So Free).

Life After Racing

KZN Breeders and KZN Dressage have joined forces to highlight the Thoroughbred and their successful competitive careers after racing.

The KZN Breeders Association, a club comprising of Stud farms who breed racehorses in the province of Kwa-Zulu Natal will be sponsoring during the competitive year of 2018. The KZN Breeders are looking forward once more to a symbiotic relationship with KZN Dressage with a common love of the Thoroughbred horse. The competition was initiated to highlight the successful careers and versatility of the Thoroughbred in varying riding sports and disciplines, post racing. The successful retraining of ex-racehorses competing in various equestrian disciplines has seen them consistently prove themselves in both the local and international sport horse arenas. Dressage is considered to be the ultimate in equestrian sport, requiring great precision and discipline from both horse and rider. Find out more at www.kzndressage.co.za
