Visiting owners Andre Hauptfleisch and George Sarmias could not have asked for a better day at the races on Friday (6 Oct) at the Fairview Polytrack.

Hauptfleisch was delighted with the victory of his five year-old mare Elusivenchantment, trained by Yvette Bremner, against some strong opposition in a Pinnacle Stakes.

β€œI love Port Elizabeth racing,” Hauptfleisch said with a big smile which indicated the trip from the Western Cape was worth it.

Sarmias drove from Jeffreys Bay to watch the four year-old gelding Barbarella Nights won a Maiden Plate.

β€œIt was an easy win for the horse but still it was very exciting. It was great to enjoy the victory with by partners that are involved with the horse, Mark and Dorrie Sham, and Dorrie is also the trainer,” Sarmias said.

He joked that he was getting ready for a solid speech in the postrace television interview but got rather tongue tied before the cameras.

It was a fantastic, runaway victory tough from Barbarella Nights that would have left many patrons speechless.
