It was high fives all around in this year’s Fairview Merchants on Friday (26 Jan).

The five year old gelding Omega Onslaught won the Merchants (Non-Black-Type) over 1200m for his new owner Etienne Braun in fine style with Ryan Munger in the saddle.

Omega Onslaught has won five races in a row now, the victory in the Merchants being the first in the Braun silks.

Braun has always been a supporter of Port Elizabeth racing but is set to play an even bigger role as an owner in the future.

The high fives doesn’t stop there as trainer Tara Laing has now won the Merchants five times since the victory of Vauclair in 2014.
