Crystal Glamour done it the hard way, but under another top ride by Andrew Fortune she fought on to claim her 4th victory in only 11 starts at Turffontein over 1400m on 24 December 2016. The manner in which she won this race suggests that she is on the up and if she keeps progressing, a graded stakes win is on the cards for this daughter of Seventh Rock, bred by the Ascot Stud. Congratulations to owner Derick van Rensburg and his family!
In the absence of stable rider Andrew Fortune who is recovering from an injury sustained on Thursday. Champion Jockey S’manga Khumalo, better known as “Bling” around the racetracks of South Africa, picked up the ride on Crystal Glamour in a competitive Progress Plate for Fillies and Mares over 1200m at Turffontein on 15 October 2016. “Bling” dropped Crystal Glamour off the pace from a wide draw and bided his time until the entering the straight, when he asked her for an effort she produced a sustained run to win the contest by over a length to spare at the line. It may pay to follow Crystal Glamour in the upcoming feature races on the Highveld this season. Congratulations to owner Derick Jansen van Rensburg and breeders Ascot Stud!
