Thursday Roundup

Friday, 17 December 2021

The public holiday meeting unusually at a KZN track opened with the original favourites ABBACADABRA drifting from a very unrealistic opening price of 9/20 to a more realistic price of about 2/1 as a result of support for LADIES DAY. The original favourite got up to win under Anton Marcus beating RASPBERRY BERET and LADIES DAY. I would like to know why Anton Marcus hardly returns for the interviews, this isn't good as his comments on rides for the rest of day could increase turnover and also he's not giving his sponsors milage!

Weekend Roundup With 'The Racing Guy'

Monday, 13 December 2021

Race 1 a maiden juvenile plate was won in a record time by CRUISE CONTROL trained by Gavin Smith, owned by Vicky Veeramooto who would win a much bigger race on Saturday. It comfortably beat the odds on favourite and is definitely a horse to follow. The next race worth mentioning is race 4 where LINE OF POWER got up on the post again to beat TIMKAT.

The debate being whether the ride was a good one as if the result went the other way it would have had people calling for the jockeys head. Race 6 saw a very good win from ABIA overcoming bad wide draw of 12 going off at 12/1 it easily beat stable companion VISION ON ICE. Race 7 saw CARIOCA under Richard Fourie run on well to win going away from the stable companion and favourite MARMARA SEA who ran another honest race.
