News from Gary Alexander Racing Stables
Pierre Jourdan back in action
Six-year-old Pierre Jourdan is back in action at Turffontein on Saturday when he will contest the Grade 3 Joburg Spring Challenge over 1450m.
The nine-time multiple group-race winner has his first outing this season and might just be in need of the run but he will be fresh and over this extended sprint trip cannot be ignored.
The son of Parade Leader is well treated at the weights and with Pierre Strydom in the irons the poor draw of 11 should prove to be too much of the hurdle for the Pierres.
The stable has six other runners on the day and promising Miessa will be out to make his star shine that much brighter.
The son of Jallad contest the fourth race on the card, a 94 merit-rated handicap over 1800m.
The four-year-old is out to extend his winning record to four in a row and looks to have the arsenal to do just that. CC (4/10/12)
