Azzie’s Juveniles on Form
Rika and Adriaan van Vuuren had much to smile about as their juveniles did them proud winning two bonus races on Friday evening and producing another win at Turffontein on Sunday.
Two year old filly Lady Ky (AUS), bred at Rangal Park Stud, Victoria, won the 4th race, a 1160 metre R85k Maiden Plate (F&M) by 3¼.
The 5th race went to Game of Thrones. This was the two year olds second start, a 1160m Maiden Plate (R85k). He was bred by Dr I R Heyns – Black Minnaloushe (USA) – Nobly Planned by Northern Guest (USA).
Both Rika and Adriaan are RA members so they were handed two cheques of R20k each by RA CEO Larry Wainstein for winning these two bonus races. Both horses were piloted by Anton Marcus.
Their good fortune continued on Sunday when their two year old filly Moonlit Venice won the R85k Maiden Juvenile Plate over 1450 metres, starting at a generous price of 14/1. She was bred at Highlands Farms Stud – Windrush (USA) – Via Condotti by Raise a Man. Apprentice Collen Storey was pleased as punch to steer her into the winners enclosure.
