Owner of the Week
VAN ZYL SNAPS UP TWO WINS IN THE WEEK
Gauteng owner of the week went to Gavin van Zyl who produced two wins during the week.
The first was Snappy Lad who won the 7th at the Vaal on the 16 May. Snappy Lad is a three year old gelding bred by Scott Bros – Mogok (USA) – Pretty Groovy by Foveros (GB). He is a two time winner but has been placed in all but two starts. Snappy Lad is owned in partnership with Mr N Jairajh.
His second win of the week was Dirtydealin Mama, a three year old filly bred by Mr and Mrs Bruce le Roux – Miesque’s Approval – Gracious Guest by Northern Guest (USA). This was Dirtydealin Mamma’s second career win and she started at the handsome price of 33/1.
Gavin is fortunate to have his popular and competent son Chesney taking care of his Gauteng yard whilst he does the business in Durban for the Natal season.
