Tessa and Laurence Wernars were obvious choices for the RA Owner of the week when winning both Grade 2 races which carry stakes of R400 000 at Turffontein on Saturday 25 March. Brazuca (Aus) won the Colorado King Stakes over 2000 metres. The four year old colt is a five time winner and has only run unplaced in one career start. He is trained by Johan Janse van Vuuren.
Gary Alexander- trained Champagne Haze won the Senior Santa Handicap over 1160 metres. He was bred at Summerhill Stud – Kahal (GB) – Vin Fizz by Qui Danzig (USA). Also a five time winner, Champagne Haze (owned in partnership with Pravin Chetty, BG and JP Gardner, AB Guiricich, J Labuschagne, GP Sadie, DA Simpson and AP Whicher) won by 2 lengths at a starting price of 8/1. Both winners were ridden by Gavin Lerena.
