Owner of the Week

Good Week for Team Ralphs and Dawson

Kathryn Ralphs had two winners last week to earn the RA Owner of the Week Award. Both winners are from the Candice Dawson stable. Cassini (13/1) won a Maiden Plate over 1200 metres at Vaal Racecourse on 19 April under the ride of Craig Zackey. The three year old filly was bred at Klawervlei Stud – Seventh Rock (Aus) – Miss Galilei (Aus) by Galileo (IRE).   Earlier in the week, Ralphs had earned the winners cheque through Rocky Valley’s (18/1) successful outing in a Pinnacle Stakes Open over 1000 metres at Turffontein on 17 April under the ride of Gunter Wrogemann. Rocky Valley was bred at Snyman Stud – Seventh Rock (Aus) Valley of Rubies by Mogok (USA).

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.
