BRUGMAN, FAYD'HERBE & ACT OF WAR after the Guineas
Little blood was spilled on the Kenilworth battlefield as owners Ingrid and Markus Jooste and trainer Joey Ramsden swatted aside the opposition, winning race after race at Saturday’s prestigious Guineas meeting. Their day of triumph was crowned by the thumping victory of Act Of War in the Grade 1 Grand Parade Cape Guineas.
Act Of War
Jack Milner: It all sounds so familiar. A three-year-old who has only been beaten once, but with no Grade 1 pedigree, taking on opposition who have either won or been placed in a Grade 1 event.
Jack Milner: Judged on all the betting support she receives every time she runs Whatalady clearly has talent. On debut she went off at 2-1 but found one too good in the form of Sean Tarry-trained Olive Leaf.
Trevor Reid: Trainer Brett Crawford and all his connections must have been very disappointed in Alexis’s run in the Lanzerac Ready To Run Stakes at Kenilworth in November as she was fancied to go close after some dazzling earlier displays.
Nicci Garner: The race meeting at Scottsville on Tuesday has been abandoned due to a waterlogged track but there will be plenty of entertainment for punters later in the day at Turffontein.
