The star of this year’s World Sports Betting East Cape Poly Challenge (NBT) is enjoying a well deserve holiday.

Cape Rebel, a five year old gelding trained by Tobie Spies, is taking a break after he was the best performing horse over the three legs of the Challenge.

He won the first leg, was third in the second race and ran fourth in the third and last leg on 11 May.

That fourth place gave Cape Rebel just enough points to secure the consolation bonus of R50 000 for his owner Justin Turner.

It is a bit of a miracle that Cape Rebel performed so brilliantly this season as he was away from the track for more than a year due to an injury.

There was just one point between Cape Rebel and the winner of the third leg, Dawnbreaker, trained by Gavin Smith, in the battle for the consolation bonus for the best performing horse in the series.

Ryno du Plessis of WSB was very happy about the way this series has grown in stature.

“We saw three days of amazing racing and in the end there was a difference of just one point between the two top horses.”
