It has taken him a while, but Power of Place brought his work to the course at the Vaal yesterday. In so doing he comfortably shed his maiden tag, another top ride by Apprentice Denis Schwarz, he had Power of Place just off the leading pack and produced him perfectly to take control of the 1200m contest in the final furlong. Power of Place has always shown he has ability and he may well go on from here. Congratulations to owners Drakenstein Stud(Nom: Mrs G Rupert), L & J Wernars and B & J Gardner and G Alexander. Power of Place was bred by Drakenstein Stud.
