Grade 2 success for VARS VICKY!
The Grade 2 Senor Santa Stakes was VARS VICKY'S toughest task to date. He was taking on a very classy field of experienced sprinters. He has been so progressive in the lead up to the race and the stable were confident enough that he would be up to the challenge. It was a fantastic win!
Muzi Yeni, who rode an excellent race had pointed out that the lightly raced 3-year-old is still immature and takes a while for his mind to get on the job, but Muzi did well to get him into gear and started flying home to get his nose down on the line for the win. This is suggestive that the penny has not quite dropped yet, and he should continue to improve with age and experience. This makes his future an exciting one.
A very big congratulations to the owner, Mr Vicky Veeramootoo who puts a lot into racing and his support in the yard is always much appreciated. The Var gelding was a R150 000 purchase at the big cape sale in 2019. It is such a great breeding feat by the Gary Player Stud that homes some quality mares and always show their love and interest in every foal they sell.
There is a lot of work that goes into getting a horse like this to the course and in top shape. The great team efforts in the yard make it all possible.
A big thanks to the sponsor - HOLLYWOODBETS. The on-going support is always appreciated.
