Walter Smoothie keeps the ball rolling!

WALTER SMOOTHIE has ended up in the winners box for the second time this month! As stated after his last win, his improvement would come over further distance and he did just that. It was a step up in class as well with having some hard knocking horses to take on, but with 200m to go, he dug down deep and ended up winning the race going away. Another big congratulations to the Smith family, always there to shout there horse home. Also a big thank you from the Stable to the Smith family for their support. The addition of this winner makes it six for the month and the stable are just happy and grateful for the consistency for the year so far. Hoping it can continue throughout the season. Thank

Gottalottaluv - a deserved win!

After three 2nd's in a row, it was well overdue for GOTTALOTTALUV to show some guts and fight off all challenges to win her maiden! Their is no doubt that with the experience under her belt and much more ground, she will be showing a lot more improvement and will win herself a few races. It's another congratulations to long time patron Mr Ian van Schalkwyk, who is having a nice season to date along with the stable and we can only hope it continues. This winner is the 5th winner of the month for the stable and with a small string of actual runners it is a great achievement and a nice way to begin 2018. Thanks to the sponsor - HOLLWOODBETS for their on-going support.

Kings Archer adds to the Stable tally!

KINGS ARCHER won a very gutsy race on Saturday, this now making him a six time winner and well deserved by his ongoing consistent form. He is a hard knocking horse and if his merit rating can remain fair he will be a nice horse to follow if you looking for consistency. Well done to Mr Ian van Schalkwyk who has enjoyed a couple of winners of the last few months and we hope his form continues! On the day, Solider On also ran a great race, running on strongly for 2nd, a very positive post maiden run. It won't be too long before he ends up in the winners enclosure again. The stable is very happy with the continued consistent win/place percentage and long may it continue. Thanking the sponsor onc

Strong ride and gutsy win for Zulu Dawn!

The lightly raced 3 year old filly ZULU DAWN recorded her second win from just seven starts. It was a solid and strong ride from Marco to get the filly home, she dug in deep and to get up on the line. She has matured a lot since her maiden win and based on this last run, she should win a few races. This is very exciting for long time patron of the stable, Mr Mike Winstanley, who owns and bred the filly. He is always present at the races to shout the filly home and it's great for the stable to see the owners enjoying their racing. A big well done to Mr Winstanley. Another positive is that the stable still continues their winning ru n and long may it continue! Thanking the sponsors once again

Walter Smoothie continues to progress.

WALTER SMOOTHIE looks like the type of horse that is progressing in the right way, having won his second start in just six outings. To add to this, he has only been unplaced once in his career. The stable are very happy to have a horse like this giving so much enjoyment to the whole Smith family who are always their to support the young 3 year old! It looks like he may even be looking for a bit more ground and with a front running tactics that seem to work for him, he might be a contender for one or two bigger races down the line. On the day, Gottalottaluv ran a gutsy 2nd and if not for her horrid draw it would have been two winners on the day. She should be in the winners box next time out.

Solider On with a run away maiden win!

There was a lot of confidence from the stable going into the last race at Turffontein on Sunday! SOLDIER ON being lightly raced and a bit unlucky in his first two starts made a mends to win a very nice race. He still seems very green in the running and looks like he will enjoy a bit further, hopefully giving Mr Terry Kung some excitement going into the new year. His post maiden run will tell us a lot more but he looks likely to improve from here. Well done to Mr Kung who owns and bred the Brave Tin Solider colt! It's nice to see the stable still ticking over and all hopes on 2018 to keep it going. Thanking the sponsor once again - HOLLYWOODBETS.
