Top Shot turned 9 years old at the beginning of the month. But this didn’t stop him from giving his younger rivals a full go over 2400m at Turffontein Racecourse on 08 August 2020. Confidently ridden by jockey Denis Schwarz, he got up on the line to record the 9th win of his career. The manner in which he won suggests he is not done yet and there may be more in the tank for him this season. Congratulations to owners, Mr Simon Jeffrey and Gary Alexander Racing Stables cc. Top Shot was bred by Summerhill Stud!
Top Shot fought to the line to obtain his 8th win of his career on Saturday 25 January 2020 at Turffontein Racecourse. Well ridden by champion apprentice Luke Ferraris, he made an early move and got Top Shot going at the right time to hold off a late challenge by the favourite. It was a win full of merit for the 8-year-old gelding over the marathon distance of 2600m. He is in good form and he could pull off a minor feature in the near future. Congratulations to owners Bruce & Jo Gardner & Greg Sadie. Top Shot was bred by Summerhill Stud.
Top Shot won his seventh race at Turffontein Racecourse on Saturday 14 July 2018 over 2000m and the manner in which he won suggests that he still has more wins in the tank.

Top Shot was a fifty thousand rand purchase and was bred by Summerhill Stud.
After a disappointing run in the Drum Star Handicap last time out, Top Shot returned to the track after a short break to make amends in no uncertain manner.

This was Top Shot’s 6th win and the son of AP Arrow may now be aimed at bigger things. Congratulations to Bruce & Jo Gardner, Greg Sadie & Mark Khan. Top Shot was bred by Summerhill Stud!
JP Van Der Merwe picked up the ride on Top Shot yesterday, after jockey Marco Van Rensburg was stood down and he gave Top Shot a pearl of a ride. Leading from start to finish it was a well judged ride by the jockey who steered Smart Call to victory in last year’s J&B Met. Top Shot is now a five time winner after beating a quality field in the Pinnacle Stakes over 1600m at Turffontein on 18 January 2017, on Sun Met Day.

Top Shot cruised in by over three lengths in a MR 72 handicap over 1600m at Turffontein on 19 March 2016. Well ridden by jockey Marco Van Rensburg, he placed Top Shot in a winning position soon after the start and had the race sewn up in the final furlong.
