Owner of the Week
Team Shill and van der Linden are Owners of the Week
Jeff Shill and JJ van der Linden are no strangers to the industry and we were pleased with their two wins at Vaal Racecourse on 23 June giving them our Owner of the Week Award. Bold Viking (owned in partnership with GE Stein and M Trakman) won the 2nd race on the card. This two year old colt was a first timer, winning a Maiden Juvenile Plate over 1200 metres at a starting price of 12/1. He was bred at Bellwood Stud – Black Minnaloushe (USA) – Norse Woman by Northern Guest (USA). Bold Viking is trained by Sean Tarry and was ridden by S’Manga Khumalo. Captured Quality (in partnership with B Kantor) was their second winner on the day winning a Maiden Plate over 1200 metres. The Alec Laird trained filly was bred at Klawervlei Stud – Kings Apostle (IRE) – Juvenescent (USA) by Elusive Quality (USA).
