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.

Beach Beauty proved she is the best middle distance female in South Africa when running out a facile winner of the Grade 1 Maine Chance Farms Paddock Stakes over 1 800m under a superb ride by Sean Cormack at Kenilworth yesterday.
In the process her trainer Dennis Drier racked up his fourth feature success and ninth win in total in his Cape Sizzling Summer Season campaign, a remarkable feat with a string of just ten horses.
The tiny five-year-old Dynasty mare put her bad luck in this race last season, when over racing off a farcical pace, behind her and emphatically reversed form with last year’s winner, the Brett Crawford-trained Thunder Dance.
