Owner of the Week
Double victory for RA Member DB Shawe
Our Owner of the Week Award was given to Mr DB Shawe following his victories with Russian Star and Detonation at Turffontein on Saturday 23 April. Three year old filly Russian Star won the 4th race, a Maiden Plate over 2000 metres at a starting price of 10/1. She was bred at Maine Chance Farms – Silvano (GER) – Wooden Doll by Fort Wood (USA). The 6th race, a MR67 Handicap over 2000 metres also went the way of Shawe with a victory by Detonation who was bred at Beaumont Stud – Dynasty – Chelsea voyage by Counter Action. This was the gelding’s second consecutive win. Both winners are trained by Geoff Woodruff and were ridden by Chase Maujean.
