The Conglomerate entered in Summer Cup
Published: 19 September 2016
Vodacom Durban July winner The Conglomerate is one of the 47 nominations for the R2-million SANSUI Summer Cup (Grade 1) over 2000m at Turffontein on Saturday 26 November.
He is one of four horses trained by Cape-based Joey Ramsden. He overcame the widest draw in the 18-horse field to beat Marinaresco in the country’s premier race in July and will only have to carry 2.5kg more, relatively speaking, if he lines up in the Summer Cup.
Ramsen’s other horses are smart stayer minor feature-race winner Macduff, Coltrane and St Tropez, a close sixth behind Marinaresco in the Champions Cup last season.
Triple Crown winner Abashiri was widely expected to win the Durban July but a tough season told at the 12th hour and he finished unplaced. He has had a good break and trainer Mike Azzie will be keen for the Go Deputy gelding to set the record straight if he lines up in the Summer Cup.
