Owner of the Week
Waiting Game pays off for Wainstein
Our Owner of the Week went to Larry Wainstein whose four year old filly Fortissima won the Racing Association Handicap (Grade 3) over 3200 metres at Turffontein on Summer Cup day (Saturday 26 November). Fortissima (owned in partnership with MA Currie, JA Soma, JP Koster and D & F Paton) was bred at Klawervlei Stud - she is a three time winner and has earned several stake cheques. S’Manga Khumalo rode a superb race in very soft conditions. As for Larry, we won’t say how long he waited for a graded race victory suffice to say it was a long time coming. He was thrilled with the trophy that was handed over by RA director Michael Leaf for this well-deserved win. May this be the start of many more graded race victories.
