Chijmes had it all to do in a competitive assessment plate over 1600m at Turffontein on 11 December 2018. Apprentice Denis Schwarz opted to lead on Chijmes and rode a well judged race to keep the favourite at bay and win a good race. Chijmes is a progressive type and there should be more to come from him this season. Congratulations to owners: Jean Marc & Clotilde Ulcoq and Ronnie & Bev Napier. Chijmes was bred by Summerhill stud.
Cold Cash showed what she is capable of at Turffontein over 1800m on 11 December 2018, and proved that her last run was all wrong. Well ridden by apprentice Denis Schwarz, he had her just off the leaders turning for home and she produced a sustained run to the line to beat the favourite going away. This was Cold Cash’s fourth win and there is more to come from her this season. Congratulations to owners Messrs L & J Wernars, A Joannides, A Giuricich and Miss J Alexander. Cold Cash was bred by Summerhill Stud.
It has taken him a while, but Power of Place brought his work to the course at the Vaal yesterday. In so doing he comfortably shed his maiden tag, another top ride by Apprentice Denis Schwarz, he had Power of Place just off the leading pack and produced him perfectly to take control of the 1200m contest in the final furlong. Power of Place has always shown he has ability and he may well go on from here. Congratulations to owners Drakenstein Stud(Nom: Mrs G Rupert), L & J Wernars and B & J Gardner and G Alexander. Power of Place was bred by Drakenstein Stud.

Under a good tactical ride by up and coming apprentice Denis Schwarz. Brand New Cadillac kept finding after leading from the start, to hold off the challenges and score an impressive victory at the Vaal on 30 August 2018 over 2400m. This was Brand New Cadillac’s second win and he is maturing into a decent stayer.

It was all against Zeal & Zest!... this race over 2000m was run at such a sedate pace on Vaal inside track, that the field literally cantered and sprinted. This is not ideal for horses with stamina, but under a good ride from Sherman Brown who deputised for Mark Khan who was booked off ill, Brown got Zeal & Zest out early in the straight and got him going, this was the major factor that won him the race. Zeal & Zest is coming back to his best and it should pay to follow him in the new season. Congratulations to owners; Pravin Chetty, Sunil Mungaroo, Adrian Giuricich, Darren Simpson, Brian Seggar & Gary Alexander. Zeal & Zest was bred by Summerhill Stud.
