Owner of the Week

Congratulations to George O’Brien

Last week proved to be successful for RA Member George O’Brien who had victories at Turffontein on 9th and 11th October.

Angelic (owned in partnership with D Foster-Jones and GT Peter) is a four year old filly who won a FM72 Handicap over 1800 metres under the ride of Carlos Herrera Gomez after starting at 8/1. She was bred at Normandy Stud – Gitano Hernando (GB) – Yours Eternally by Western Winter (USA). Later in the week Corrido (owned in partnership with K and LRA Zackey and GT Peter) won a Maiden Plate over 1600 metres under the ride of Charles Ndlovu. Corrido was bred at Nutfield Stud – Mambo in Seattle (CAN) – Malaguena by Cordoba (USA). Both winners are from the Paul Peter stable.

Bezanova might have “taken a walk” in the betting for the KwaZulu-Natal Breeders Million Mile over 1600m at Greyville on Sunday, he still managed to hold on to the R625,000 first stake cheque in a close call.

Bezanova, who had run a 0.90-length third to Legislate in the 1600m Gold Challenge previously, when Durban July second favourite Futura was a neck behind him in fourth, opened at 13-10 in the betting but went through the stalls at 5-2 in the face of long-priced support for a few other runners.
