TURF TALK

Prospector1win.jpg
Prospector from Pillar to Post!

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!

Jockey Denis Schwarz had her in contention from the start and she responded well when he asked her for an effort. She should go on from here. Congratulations to owners, Ingy Bartleson, Darren Simpson & Gary Alexander Racing stables cc. Super Fine was bred by Mr MJ Reid at Drakenstein Stud.

11th Fourth Timer for GARY ALEXANDER RACING!

Saturday 15 February 2020 was a great day for the stable our four winners, General Jackson; Fierce Fighter Chijmes and Saragon, was the eleventh time we achieved four winners on a day at the same venue. Our first goes all the way back to 19th May 1987, when Dispensation; Ganymede, Good Books and Wallah all won!

Then we have our six winners on a day at the same venue to add,  this we achieved twice, first on the 09 July 1994 and then on  09 August 1995.

Truly blessed!
