KING OF THE DELTA followed his recent form by winning the 6th race at Turffontein yesterday. The stable knew he was in with a win and place chance but by the way he won, the gelding by Antonius Pius knew it was up to himself to cross the line first. He did so by a 2,50 length margin and kept on strongly. Although he has never been a star, he seldomly runs a bad race and always keeps his owners entertained by knowing he is at the track to put in his best efforts.
He is now a 3 time winner and has earned just over 300k. Well done to all owners involved - Mr Taylor, Lane, Marks and Trenchard. All are loyal patrons of the stable and enjoy their racing.
The stable to date for the season has not had too many runners and by waiting the summer rains to come, tracks to flourish and young horses to mature, it is a well balanced way to have patience and keep the stable ticking over.
The win also adds to another small milestone, this being the 600th winner for the with just over 6000 runners. Every winner is something to appeciate but this one adds to celebrations.
