Alula is Mxoli's Star - G3 win!
The relationship between horse and jockey cannot be amplified more than this one, ALULA'S STAR and Philisande Mxoli have had a great journey together and have now added a second Group race factory to their belts.
Alula's Star is certainly one of the stables favourites. A small filly with a very big heart. The Red Ray bred filly's credentials speak for themselves. The filly has travelled to the races 20 times, from this she has taken home a stake cheque 19 times. The only exclusion was when the enthusiastic Philisande Mxoli was not aboard.
The progressing 4-year-old has proven to be an out and out sprinter and has taken on some of the best sprinting fillies in Gauteng. If she isn't winning, she has been just off them, but always putting in a good effort and no race to date could be regarded as disappointing.
Apprentice Mxoli, as mentioned about has partnered this filly in nearly all of her runs and as a pair they love every race and competition that comes their way. It really is special to see such a formidable connection between jockey and horse.
The 4-year-old has taken on multiple challenges and should continue to do so throughout her season. Maybe as an older filly next year she would and could improve even further.
A very big congratulations once again to owner, Mr Ian van Schalkwyk. The filly was a relatively inexpensive purchase and has been fortunate enough to earn far above her purchase price and training costs. The hopes are that the filly's big heart can achieve more success throughout her career.
