Astral Plane having only her third start came with a sustained run to shed her maiden tag in good style at Turffontein on 10 August 2020 over 1450m. Well ridden by jockey Denis Schwarz, he had her well placed soon after the start and when he pressed the button she responded instantly and ran on strongly to win a good contest. She is improving all the while and it could pay to follow this daughter of Willow Magic. Congratulations to owners: Gary Alexander Racing Stables cc; Mr & Mrs B Gardner; Messrs K Michael, J Snyman; E Ramsamy & C Majadibodu. Astral Plane was bred by Summerhill Stud!
Top Shot turned 9 years old at the beginning of the month. But this didn’t stop him from giving his younger rivals a full go over 2400m at Turffontein Racecourse on 08 August 2020. Confidently ridden by jockey Denis Schwarz, he got up on the line to record the 9th win of his career. The manner in which he won suggests he is not done yet and there may be more in the tank for him this season. Congratulations to owners, Mr Simon Jeffrey and Gary Alexander Racing Stables cc. Top Shot was bred by Summerhill Stud!
Prospector gave jockey Denis Schwarz’s an early 21st birthday present at Turffontein Racecourse on Sunday 05 July 2020. Denis who celebrates his 21st on the 6th July 2020 gave Prospector a copy book ride, he led from pillar to post and timed it perfectly to get the Traffic Guard gelding home to win by over a length to spare at the line. It was a win full of merit by Prospector, he broke his maiden in only his second time of asking over the testing 1600 meters on Turffontein Standside track. He should continue to improve. Congratulations to owners Roger Coppin, John Fourie, Dan Side & Gary Alexander Racing Stables cc. Prospector was bred by Summerhill Stud!
Super Fine finally brought her track work to the racetrack and won her maiden, easily over 1500m at the Vaal Racecourse on 30 June 2020. Jockey Denis Schwarz had her in contention from the start and she responded well when he asked her for an effort. She should go on from here. Congratulations to owners, Ingy Bartleson, Darren Simpson & Gary Alexander Racing stables cc. Super Fine was bred by Mr MJ Reid at Drakenstein Stud.
