The seven year-old gelding Exelero gave trainer Tara Laing her fourth victory in five years ­- with four different horses - in the R150 000 Listed East Cape Sprint Cup on Good Friday (30 March) at Fairview.

Laing makes no secret about the fact that she loves to win the big sprint races in the Eastern Cape.

It was a huge team effort to get Exelero to victory, as he is known to be a bit of a handful at home. Former champion jockey Gavin Venter is the only one that does the work riding with Exelero.

Jockey Callan Murray remained loyal to Exelero after a few close seconds to stable mate Omega Onslaught and was delighted to take the win this time.

In the other feature race on Good Friday the satellite stable of trainer Justin Snaith continued the big race successes in Port Elizabeth with Sabbatical winning the R150 000 Listed East Cape Guineas.
