Colin Bird is Owner of the Week
After delivering 5 second places for RA member Colin Bird, Dolphin chose the right time to win a Maiden Plate over 1000 metres on 6 February as this race carried the added RA bonus of R20 000. Congratulations on this deserved victory. The three year old gelding was bred at Drakenstein Stud (Mrs G A Rupert) – Trippi (USA) – Galaxy Gal (Aus) by Encosta De Lago (Aus). The final race on the card also went to Bird when three year old filly Madame Dubois won the Three Troikas (GR3) over 1450 metres at a starting price of 8/1. She has produced three victories including two Grade three races. Madame Dubois was bred by Messrs A J Mcabb and E Miliotis. Both winners are from the Robert Sage stable.
