Owner of the Week

Spring Challenge Win for Wonderwall

Chris van Niekerk has been selected as the RA Owner of the Week following victory by his three year old colt Wonderwall in the Johannesburg Spring Challenge over 1450 metres at Turffontein Racecourse on Saturday 7 October. The Sean Tarry trained winner boasts a good form line with two wins and 3 places from his five starts. He produced a convincing victory under the ride of Lyle Hewitson winning by more than two lengths. Wonderwall was bred at Maine Chance Farms – Querari (Ger) – Westwardly by Silvano (Ger).

Bezanova might have “taken a walk” in the betting for the KwaZulu-Natal Breeders Million Mile over 1600m at Greyville on Sunday, he still managed to hold on to the R625,000 first stake cheque in a close call.

Bezanova, who had run a 0.90-length third to Legislate in the 1600m Gold Challenge previously, when Durban July second favourite Futura was a neck behind him in fourth, opened at 13-10 in the betting but went through the stalls at 5-2 in the face of long-priced support for a few other runners.
