Carlita has made sure her name is in the hat to be crowned as the East Cape Champion 3y old filly at the end of the current season.
She won the East Cape Nursery last year but had a bit of a lean year, till last Friday when she won the Listed Milkwood Stakes.
The only other 3y old East Cape filly to win a Listed event this season is Just Chaos, as the other Listed 3y old filly winners are all raiders from the Western Cape.
March Music, Madame Speaker, Mary O’Reilly and Klever Kathy are other 3y old fillies from the Eastern Cape that performed well in big races this season.
Carlita, bred by the Piemonte Stud, has now won six races from thirteen starts for stakes of nearly half a million rand. Champion trainer Alan Greeff, his wife Glennifer and Ashley Fortune are the owners of Carlita.
