Owner of the Week
Treble for Gray and Strydom
St John Gray is the deserving RA owner of the week following three victories at Turffontein on Saturday 23 August.
The first was with four year old gelding Don Vito in the 5th race, a MR 68 Handicap. The four year old gelding (owned in partnership with L K Heynes and A C Smith) produced his 3 career win and was bred at Summerhill Stud – Stronghold (GB) – Deceptive Charm (IRE) by Kingmambo (USA).
Norgay then went on to win the 8th race, a MR86 Divided Handicap. This five year old gelding has earned a stake cheque in his last seven starts. He was bred at Graystone Stud – Sarge – Summit Seeker by Kilconnel (USA).
The ninth race also went to the way of the St John Gray and Piere Strydom partnership with a win by four year old colt Mai Thaiga in a MR69 Divided Handicap over 1800m. He was also bred at Graystone Stud – Jam Alley (Aus) – Painters Dream (IRE) by Sadlers Wells (USA)
