Owner of the Week
Well done Mr Mac
It’s pleasing to see stalwarts like Andre MacDonald landing three winners in a week and the RA recognises his achievement by selecting him as our Gauteng Owner of the Week. His first winner was on 30 June at Vaal Racecourse when two year old filly Misristocrat won a Maiden Plate with her 4th career start. She was bred at Scott Bros, Miesque’s Approval (USA) – Jungle Princess by Mogok (USA). Celtic Legend then produced her 4th victory in a Conditions Plate (F&M) over 1200 metres at Vaal Racecourse on 2 July. This four year old filly was bred at Balmoral Stud, Stronghold (GB) – Mana Pools by Muhtafal (USA). Mr Mac’s successful run continued to Saturday 4 July at Turffontein with four year old gelding Africain producing his second win in a MR78 Handicap (Open) over 2000 metres when jockey Sherman Brown won by a short head. Africain has earned a stake cheque in every start – he was bred at Klipdrif Stud – Jet Master – Helenka by West Man (USA). Macdonald’s three winners are owned in partnership with his wife Joyce and trained by Trainer W H Tolmay.
