Up and coming three-year-old Bartholdi was an impressive winner, in a competitive 3yr old Handicap, over the 1500m at Turffontein, on the inside track on Saturday 23 January 2021. Top jockey S’manga Khumalo had him well placed and produced him perfectly to go on and win easily at the line. It should pay to follow this son of Act of War, who was bred by Summerhill Stud, this season. Congratulations to owners; Messrs B Gardner, R Coppin, C Millar & Mrs J Gardner ; Gary Alexander Racing Stables cc (J Cook & J Wallace) & Summerhill Stud( Nominee M Goss).
Under a superbly judged ride from top jockey Sherman Brown, Zeal & Zest made it back-to-back victories at Turffontein on 12 December 2020 over 2400m. Sherman Brown has a fantastic record on this son of Traffic Guard, he has ridden him 4 times for 3 wins and a 2nd. Congratulations to owners; Pravin Chetty, Sunil Mungaroo, Darren Simpson, Brian Seggar, Adrian Giuricich and Gary Alexander. Zeal & Zest was bred by Summerhill Stud!
Champion apprentice Luke Ferraris gave Bartholdi a top ride to get him home over 1100m at Turffontein on 28 November 2020. In only his second start Bartholdi raced green, but Luke gave him every bit of assistance from the saddle to get him up in time under a hard-fought win. This son of Act of War has scope, and it should pay to follow him this season. Congratulations to the owners; Messrs B Gardner, R Coppin, C Millar & Mrs J Gardner ; Gary Alexander Racing Stables cc (J Cook & J Wallace) & Summerhill Stud( Nominee M Goss). Bartholdi was bred by Summerhill Stud.
Nimcha is now a six time winner after his fluent victory at the Vaal on the 26 November 2020 over 1800m. Once again under a top ride by champion apprentice Luke Ferraris, he had Nimcha well placed soon after the start and when he asked him to run the final 400m, he responded well to win easily. Congratulations to owner Poovie Moonsamy and Summerhill stud who bred him.
