The two year old filly Carlita will always be well supported by her owners when she runs at Fairview in Port Elizabeth.

The champion trainer in the Eastern Cape, Alan Greeff, owns the filly in partnership with his wife Glenifer and Ashley Fortune, wife of former jockey Andrew Fortune.

The Greeff’s are regulars at the Fairview meetings but Ashley has been making the trip from Johannesburg every time that Carlita is running in PE.

Ashley says she wants to be at the track when the filly runs as it is much more nerve wrecking to watch the race on television.

Carlita won the R150 000 Listed East Cape Fillies Nursery on Friday (23 March) and it already looks like she will be named as the champion two year-old filly in the province at the end of the season.

The Fillies Nursery was a triumph for Greeff as he saddled the first three past the post – Carlita, Madame Speaker and Watsonia. Greeff was ecstatic about the performance of all these fillies.

Carlita has now won three races from four stars for stake money of R214 375.
