Congrats to the Ackerman family and connections!
A very big congratulations to Mr Willem Ackerman and his family, nothing like being on course to lead in your first winner! As a new owner to the yard, it makes the win extra special for to the Pettigrew Racing team.
Willem Ackerman has put a lot of confidence into the yard by purchasing some promising youngsters at various recent sales. The stable and the industry welcome and appreciate any new owners who are needed to keep the game a float.
Another thanks to the other two owners, Mr Mark Campbell and Anton Marx. Partnerships provide a lot more fun in celebrations and it's great to see long-time owners like these continue to enjoy their winners.
BOLD FORTUNE is the young filly that ended up in the winners box, running away at the finish to win by 3,50 lengths. This was only her second outing, over a tough 2000m at Turffontein, but she showed that she is above average with her performance. She is well bred daughter out of Flower Alley and will continue to improve with age and experience. It could be an exciting career ahead for her.
On the day there was also a 2nd and 3rd place from another two runners, helping keep the stable at it's high win/place strike rate. Something the stable focuses on keeping strong.
