Champagne Haze can turn it on and when he does, he is absolutely brilliant! Under a superb and well judged ride by leading apprentice Lyle Hewitson, Champagne Haze produced an astonishing finish to come from way off the pace to win going away in the Tommy Hotspur Handicap(GR3)at Turffontein on Saturday 17 February 2018. A race close to our hearts, because we were fortunate enough to train the great “ Tommy Hotspur.” This was Champagne Haze’s prep run for the Senor Santa(GR2), which he won in similar fashion last year. Congratulations to owners, Messrs J & L Wernars, P Chetty, B Gardner, A Giuricich, J Labuschagne, S Mungaroo, G Sadie, D Simpson & Mrs. J Gardner.
Champagne Haze accelerated well in the final three hundred metres to win the Grade 2 Senor Santa Stakes by 2 lengths at Turffontein over 1160m on Saturday 25 March 2017.

This was the stables second win in the Senor Santa Stakes, previously won with Clifton King.
