Top Shot won his seventh race at Turffontein Racecourse on Saturday 14 July 2018 over 2000m and the manner in which he won suggests that he still has more wins in the tank. Apprentice Denis Schwarz did duty for Mark Khan who was sidelined because of a suspension. Congratulations to owners; Jo & Bruce Gardner, Greg Sadie & Mark Khan. Top Shot was a fifty thousand rand purchase and was bred by Summerhill Stud.
Saragon won a competitive Pinnacle plate for Fillies and Mares in style over 1600m on July day at Turffontein Racecourse. Competently ridden by up and coming apprentice Denis Schwarz, he had Saragon well placed throughout the race and produced her at the right time to win going away. Congratulations to winning owners Ashleigh Venter and Simon & Michelle Jeffery.
The nominees for Champion Stayer for the 2018 Racing Association award were , Fortissima, Just Cruised In, Let it Rain, Secret Potion & Hero’s Honour. In a hotly contested category the vote went to Hero’s Honour. The stable is delighted for owners Laurence & Jaryd Wernars, Greg Sadie, Bruce & Joanne Gardner. It is wonderful to pick up another Racing Association award, especially with this young horse who should continue to improve as he matures. Hero’s Honour was also nominated for Champion 3 year old but the vote went to the well deserved Monks Hood. Hero’s Honour was bred by Summerhill Stud who also bred Champion three year old filly Takingthepeace, whose dam Lisa Anne was trained by Gary Alexander.
