Imperial Master times it to perfection!

IMPERIAL MASTER showed a lot of heart to fend off multiple challenges and win by the shortest of margins. It was a much deserved win for the 5-year-old gelding. He always runs an honest race and has earnt a stake cheque in majority of his racing career. He is now a 4 time winner and is loving his racing.

The stable believed that he would be very competitive coming into the race and based on the starting price the public looked to agree. He had the benefit of pole position draw and the decision was made to use a 4kg claimer which gave him a good advantage based on the weights.

Young apprentice, Siyanda Sosibo partnered the gelding for the first time. From the favourable draw it was easy enough for Sosibo to position him perfectly along the fence and settled into stride. When coming into the straight, the son of Master Of My Fate was easily recognisable with his big white face and got given a clear run along the inside. During the closing stages he certainly had a fight on his hands, but both horse and jockey dug down and kept going all the way to the line.

His overall consistency and need to always provide an honest run definitely lists him as a stable and owner favourite. A big congratulations to the owners involved, Mr I Snyman, R Pettigrew and C Narayansami. The stable support is always appreciated.

Another thank you to the stable’s sponsor for all their on-going support – HOLLYWOODBETS.
