6th winner for the month!
ADMIRAL DOOLEY fought on to get his nose down on the line when it counted most!
ADMIRAL DOOLEY has always been a stable favourite when it comes to consistency. The lightly raced 4-year-old gelding has notched up his 4th career win from just 13 starts. In every race to date he has never been further than a few lengths off if not winning!
Young Kabelo Matsunyane has been the regular pilot aboard him and as a pair they seem to gel so well together. With the knowledge of knowing that the gelding does not really enjoy the stick, Matsunyane drove him home with hands and heels with a strong finish and get his nose down with a margin of 0,20 of a length.
The Soft Falling Rain gelding seems to enjoy the 1400-1600 metre races and would hopefully remain competitive in handicaps within this range if he has the right ratings. Mr Ian van Schalkwyk, a long time and loyal supporter of the yard owns the gelding and is sure to be excited for the continued racing season ahead with the likes of an honest individual like this.
This winner for the yard has now added to the tally and makes it 6 winners for the first month of the season, not excluding all other runners which managed to earn a cheque and give the stable a 100% strike rate to date, exceptional!
