Classic Illusion wins impressively

Charity Mile day at Turffontein saw many of the country’s ‘big guns’ in action in the 12 carded races and there were many notable performances on the day but, arguably, none more so than that of Classic Illusion.

The four-year-old daughter of Kahal contested the 11th race on the programme, an 80 merit-rated handicap for fillies and mares over 1600m. The field was a competitive one, as such handicaps can be, but with a very wide draw to overcome, Classic Illusion was easy to back in the race as she would have her work cut out trying to win the contest from where she had to start.

The course was quick on the day and as hard as rider Pierre Strydom tried to get Classic Illusion over form the draw, he had no chance and had to settle near the rear of the field.

The pace was on from the off but Strydom was content to keep his charge at the rear of the field until entering the home straight where he gave her her head and she started eating up the ground.

The filly showed her class as she swallowed the field to win by over a length, going away. On the back of that performance she should have more to come and the owners look set to enjoy a few more visits to the winner’s box with Classic Illusion. CC
