Grade 1 success - Anything goes steps up!
All the hard work and planning came together on Gold Cup day! Something that could never be achieved without an amazing filly like ANYTHING GOES. It was a step up in class and certainly her toughest test. She dug down deep, showed how good she is and stayed on at the line to win by a neck. She remains unbeaten, winning 4 out of 4, including this memorable Grade 1, the Thekwini Stakes.
The whole team played a big role in keeping this special Var filly on the ball, a great effort by the entire yard and always appreciated.
The biggest thanks and congratulations need to be given to long time owners, Mr Ian van Schalkwyk and Mr Anton Marx, they are so deserved of Grade 1 success. This was Anton Marx's first runner and winner in a Grade 1 race, making it that much more special to have him on course to lead his filly into the winners box.
The 3-year-old is lightly raced and will just be taking each day and race, one at a time. The hopes are that she will continue to improve and strengthen with experience and we are excited for her career ahead.
Well done to the sponsor Hollywoodbets, always great to have a winner at Hollywoodbets Greyville.
