Hero’s Honour voted Champion Stayer 2018 by the Racing Association
Hero’s Honour voted Champion Stayer 2018 by the Racing Association

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.

BNC does it for Smoking Joe!

Top workrider Joe Gwingwizha made his move at the right time on Brand New Cadillac, in the maiden 2450m  at Turffontein on Saturday, 12 May 2018. Brand New Cadillac raced from off the pace and Joe moved him up early on the bend to get him into contention early in the straight. BNC produced a sustained run to beat his stable mate Imoto, who ran on late. BNC stays well and should win again over similar distances during the off  season on the Highveld. Congratulations to owners: A Giuricich; B Seggar; P Chetty, G Kalil; G Knowles; D Simpson; B Gardner &  Miss J Alexander. Brand New Cadillac was bred by Summerhill Stud.
