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.
Banana Republic always showed a distinct liking for the Turffontein inside Course. It came as no surprise when she easily accounted for a moderate maiden field at Turffontein over 1200m on 17 November 2018. Well handled by apprentice Denis Schwarz, he had her well placed throughout and made his run at the right time to win going away. Congratulations to owners, G Alexander & Suzan Louw. Banana Republic was bred by Summerhill Stud.
