It looked like a boat race between Dark Tide and Prospector and it turned into just that over the final 450m. They came together to fight it out, but Prospector kept finding to win a good contest over 1600m at Turffontein on 03 September. Jockey Denis Schwarz always had the favourite well placed and when he asked him to run turning into the home straight, he did just that. This was Prospector second win in four starts and this son of Traffic Guard may have a bright future if he keeps on improving. Congratulations to the owners: Gary Alexander Racing Stables cc; Roger Coppin, John Fourie and Dan Side. Prospector was bred by Summerhill Stud!
Prospector gave jockey Denis Schwarz’s an early 21st birthday present at Turffontein Racecourse on Sunday 05 July 2020. Denis who celebrates his 21st on the 6th July 2020 gave Prospector a copy book ride, he led from pillar to post and timed it perfectly to get the Traffic Guard gelding home to win by over a length to spare at the line. It was a win full of merit by Prospector, he broke his maiden in only his second time of asking over the testing 1600 meters on Turffontein Standside track. He should continue to improve. Congratulations to owners Roger Coppin, John Fourie, Dan Side & Gary Alexander Racing Stables cc. Prospector was bred by Summerhill Stud!
