Denis Schwarz rode a confident race on The Sands over 1200m at the Vaal on the 15 August 2019 and produced him at the right time to win going away. The Sands has improved since sporting blinkers and it should pay to follow him this season. Congratulations to owners; Bruce & Jo Gardner; Ralphs Racing(Nominee: Kathryn Ralphs) & Greg Sadie. The Sands was bred by Summerhill Stud.
The Sands sported blinkers for the first time, and they did the tick! Well handled by apprentice Luke Ferraris, he cruised to victory over 1200m on the polytrack at Greyville on Saturday 29 June 2019. He shows lots at home and it may pay to follow him next season. Well done to owners Mrs J P Gardner and Messrs B G Gardner and G P Sadie and Ralphs Racing (Pty) Ltd (Nom: Miss K Ralphs). The Sands was bred by Summerhill Stud.
