Zeal and Zest was back to his best on Saturday at Turffontein Racecourse on 02 February 2019. Under a good ride from apprentice Denis Schwarz, Zeal & Zest kept finding to beat a competitive field over 2000m at his home track. Zeal & Zest is now a five-time winner and the way he won suggests that there is more to come from this son of Traffic Guard. Congratulations to owners, Pravin Chetty, Sunil Mungaroo, Darren Simpson, Brian Seggar, Adrian Giuricich and Gary Alexander. Zeal & Zest was bred by Summerhill Stud!
It was all against Zeal & Zest!... this race over 2000m was run at such a sedate pace on Vaal inside track, that the field literally cantered and sprinted. This is not ideal for horses with stamina, but under a good ride from Sherman Brown who deputised for Mark Khan who was booked off ill, Brown got Zeal & Zest out early in the straight and got him going, this was the major factor that won him the race. Zeal & Zest is coming back to his best and it should pay to follow him in the new season. Congratulations to owners; Pravin Chetty, Sunil Mungaroo, Adrian Giuricich, Darren Simpson, Brian Seggar & Gary Alexander. Zeal & Zest was bred by Summerhill Stud.
