Recent G1 Investec Cape Derby winning jockey Richard Fourie was at it again at the twilight meeting held at Durbanville on Saturday.
Fourie had mounts in all eight races, and booted home a treble, courtesy of Jeovana, Star Burst and Rustar Dhow.

Just three of the Richard Fourie ridden runners finished out of the money, with Fourie also ending the day running second on tote favourite Chatuchak, with the latter going down narrowly to fast finishing Gimme A Cohiba. His only other ride saw Richard claim third, on tote favourite Black Pimpernel in a maiden plate over 2400 metres.

Fourie has now 59 wins for the season.

Trainer Adam Marcus, enjoying a well deserved holiday, had reason to celebrate when his yard sent out a pair of winners, with Jeovana breaking her maiden over 1000m and the game Amazingly making all to land to score by three parts of a length.

The fancied Proud Dynasty, who was third in Saturday’s eighth and final race, returned suffering an epistaxis and is suspended for 180 days as a result.

Another trainer, Andre Nel, has been enjoying less success than usual due to a virus in the yard, with Love To Boogie, a convincing winner of the second race, just the 24th winner of the yard for the powerful stable.

A daughter of Trippi, Love To Boogie, making her first start since finishing fifth in the G3 Champagne Stakes at the end of July, but may get again a chance to earn some valuable black type in 2018.

Winning jockey Aldo Domeyer commented after the R550 000 buy got up to beat Al Wahed (who returned blowing after the run) a neck, “Love To Boogie is a really nice filly and she will be aimed at some features this season.” A half-sister to Golden Horseshoe winner Purple Diamond, Love To Boogie has now won half of her six races.

Despite just seven horses going to post for the second race (a MR 88 handicap over 1000m), 28-1 shot Tar Heel failed to get a clear passage and defied a rough trip to finish less than a length behind the winner.

Durbanville proved a graveyard for favourite backers this weekend, with just one of the eight races going the way of the tote favourite.
