St John is a deserving RA owner of the week with three wins at the Vaal last week. All I want got off to an impressive career start winning first time out in a Maiden Plate over 1200m with Callan Murray on board on Tuesday 14 April. He was bred at Graystone Stud – Jam Alley (Aus) - Hold that Thought by All Fired Up (USA). Later in the day Ciao-Ciao provided St John with his second winner when winning a MR68 Handicap over 1600 metres. Another Graystone Stud winner – Jam Alley (Aus) – Cheers by Jallad (USA). Gray’s third winner for the week was Call Kelly who won a MR72 handicap (Open) over 1200 metres at Vaal Racecourse on Thursday 16 April. This was the four year old gelding’s 2nd win with numerous places to his name. He was bred by Mr DGM Southey – Announce – Kelly’s Guest by Northern Guest (USA). Ciao-Ciao and Call Kelly were ridden by Gavin Lerena.
