The stable was very happy with NIGHTWATCHMAN's first run who took a slightly unconventional route of running an 1800 metres first time out, which saw him running on nicely. Saturday's race was over 1600 metres, which the stable believed might be a bit sharp for him, however it was not the strongest of fields and he was always in with a winning chance.
He seemed to still be quite immature in the running and only got going late to win a nice race under the hands of Gunter Wrogemann. Once he goes over some more ground and matures a bit more he might be the type of progressive sort to win a couple of races. This horse also gives Mr Ian van Schalkwyk another winner for the season and it's great to see him having a good season to date after putting so much into the game, long may the streak continue!
