The five year old gelding Cape Rebel will be a very popular sentimental favourite to win the main event today at the Fairview race track.
Today's main race is the second leg of the R600 000 WSB East Cape Poly Challenge and is been run over 1400 meters.
Cape Rebel won the first leg over 1200m and the third and final leg will be taking place on Friday 11 May over 1600m.
Each of these races carries prize money of R100 000 but the big one is that bonus of R250 000 that will be paid to the owner of a horse who can will all three legs.
That is why the Fairview crowd will be urging Cape Rebel and jockey Jarryd Penny on to victory to keep that chance of winning the bonus alive.
The owner of Cape Rebel is golfer Justin Turner and he will no doubt be a nervous but also excited man in the HB Christian Room at Fairview come race time this afternoon.
Two years ago there was a big hype in racing circles when all eyes were on Gogetthesheriff. This gelding nearly secured the bonus for trainer Jacques Strydom and owner Freddie van Onselen by winning the first two legs but just not getting there in the final leg.
That third leg was run on Friday the 13th and hopefully this date that scares a lot of superstitious people won't spoil the second leg for the connections of Cape Rebel.
The mare Stormy Appeal is still the only horse to have won all three legs of a Challenge Series in Port Elizabeth.
Cape Rebel was a surprise winner of the first leg, winning from a wide draw over a shorter distance that he prefers.
Although the extra 200 meters will be right up his ally, Cape Rebel and Penny has yet again a wide draw to overcome.
There is also some strong opposition with the likes of Peach Delight and Breakfast Club ready to run big races. It should be a very exciting affair.
For the rest of the month punters can look forward to more fine action on the polytrack on the 20th and 27th but the planned meeting on Monday the 30th has been replaced by a Kimberley meeting.
