Back to back wins for a classy sort!

MERCANTOUR, the very smart and progressive 2-year-old gelding bade it back to back wins at the Vaal on Tuesday. This now making him a 2 time winner from his 3 starts.

The very progressive son of Var came into the race with the very confident backing of the stable. He won his maiden very well and had come on many lengths, therefore he had solid chances and the stable were expecting a massive run. He was taking on a very short priced filly, who in her own right is a classy filly. On the day she was no match for MERCANTOUR.

It was a confident ride by Diego De Gouveia who allowed the youngster to just bowl along in a good handy position and when the question was asked, it was an instant turn of foot, and he fended off all challenges all the way down to the line.

He is certainly one for the notebooks and it will be exciting to see how he continues to improve with experience, a 3-year-old worth following. It is also another exciting prospect for owner, Mr Vicky Veeramootoo who has spent a lot of money investing in some well bred horses and its wonderful to see some of the investments maturing. A very big congratulations.
