The tremendous successful run of the young owner Justin Turner continues at the Fairview track.

The five year-old gelding Cape Rebel won the first leg of the R600 000 World Sports Betting East Cape Poly Challenge (NBT) over 1200m on Monday (12 March) and Turner admitted that he can’t wait for the next two legs.

Cape Rebel is now in line to win the R250 000 bonus for Turner for winning all three legs of the Challenge.

Turner said he thought the distance of the first leg was too short for his horse and will make sure he is at the track for the next two legs.

The second leg will be over 1400m on 13 April and the third leg over 1600m takes place on 11 May.

Friday’s win was the first on the poly surface for Cape Rebel. He has now won five times with seven places for stakes of more than R300 000.

Cape Rebel is trained by Corné Spies and was ridden by Jarryd Penny.
