Danie Toerien: Jockeys Gavin Lerena and Warren Kennedy both rode a threesome of winners on Saturday at Turffontein, with Lerena snaring the top prize on offer on the day, the Grade 3 Sea Cottage Stakes.

He steered Green Laser to victory for trainer Robbie Sage in this R200,000 event over 1800m.

“He’s won a good race today,” said Lerena in the post-race interview.

“The horse is very sensible and it seems the blinkers have done the trick.” According to Lerena the step up to 1800m was exactly what this Gimmethegreenlight colt needed.

Sage was also full of praise for his runner.

“He’s a nice sort. He’s had a bit of an issue, but we brought him back slowly and we’re building him up. The horse did everything right and he was well ridden. Well done to Gavin,” said Sage.
