MALMOOS given a 5 point merit rating raise

Wednesday, 07 April 2021

MALMOOS has been given a significant five point merit rating raise by the handicappers for his amazing win in the Grade 1 WSB SA Derby on Saturday and earning the prized Triple Crown.

His merit rating goes to 125 and will surely be enough for him to be a contender for the 2021 Vodacom Durban July. But this also means that he will carry more than the minimum weight of 53kg for a 3 year old male runner for the July.

However, Mike De Kock commented, "I'm not sure about taking MALMOOS to Durban. We're not hellbent on going to the Durban July. He's had a hell of a season."

MALMOOS beat PAMUSHANA'S PRIDE by 5.25 lengths with SECOND BASE a head back in third and anther 1.90 lengths to fourth-placed SHAH AKBAR.

Mike de Kock has indicated that MALMOOS's next task will be the Grade 1 Premier's Champions Challenge over 2000m at Turffontein.

The Stage Set for Racing Royalty

Thursday, 15 April 2021

by Gary Lemke, supplied by GGGaming.bet

They used to reckon that racing is the activity of royalty – hence the name “The Sport of Kings” – and Saturday’s meeting at Turffontein seems to bear that out, with the main event being the Grade 1 HSH Princess Charlene Empress Club Stakes.

The race will be run over 1600m and Princess Charlene, a former Olympic swimmer for South Africa, has always done her bit to promote interest in her country of upbringing and horse racing. Therefore, it’s probably fitting that the highest-rated filly in the land, and one of our most popular horses, is in the race.
