February has started off as a good month for the stable! With three winners for the weekend,we hope that the good form may continue.
The first winner was at Turffontein in the Allez France Stakes (Non-Black type), where GOTTALOTTALUV ran them off their feet and gearing down to win by 3,40 lengths. She seems to be getting better and stronger with age and the new addition of blinkers has seemed to help, with her winning her last two in a row. With the right type of races, we are hoping she may pick up some form of Black Type.
Well done to Mr Ian van Schalkwyk, which at the time would not have known it would be an exciting weekend ahead with another two horses to reach the winners box carrying his colours.
Sunday followed with racing at Greyville which looked dampened by rain and lightening, but all was needed was some patience and racing luckily continued. The stable were very confident of a big run from MOSHAV, who had found the correct course, distance, draw and competition. He did not have the easiest of passages but when the gap came, the timing was perfect and he won going away. He is now a 4 time winner and if he can find the right type of races again he should have another win or two left in him.
It was then the lucky last that once again saw Mr van Schalkwyk's colours in the winners box with BEL CANTO CHORUS, he is also in partnership with Mr Anton Marx another avid supporter of the stable and well done to him!
The stable knew that the daughter of Philanthropist would love the polytrack and she did just that. There was a short priced favourite to bet, but from the pole position draw, everything just went her way and she won an easy race. She is limited in her talents and the stable and owners will decide where to go with her next.
Thanks to the sponsor once again for all their support - HOLLYWOODBETS.
