SA Horses Arrive In Mauritius

Interesting season ahead on the island

The 2016 Gr2 Gold Cup winner Enaad is one of the leading former SA-based racehorses expected to compete at the Champ de Mars in Mauritius this season.

Enaad – set for the Maiden Cup

Close on 130 horses have arrived for the new season, which commences with the running of the Duchess Of York Cup on Saturday, 25 March.

The Australian-bred son of High Chaparral, who raced in the yellow and royal blue of Al Adiyaat SA, won the Gr3 Gold Vase and Gold Cup in consecutive starts in the last SA Champions Season, but battled to regain his form thereafter.

He will join the Gujadhur yard and looks likely to have the Maiden Cup in September as his chief target, where he could face another son of High Chaparral in Parachute Man.

Beat The Retreat – decent sort

Former Gavin van Zyl trained 6yo Qatar Springs, a winner of six races, has joined the yard of Jean-Michel Henry, who has also brought Brett Crawford’s Midnite Zone, a sprinter who has won thrice and placed six times.

Gr3 Godolphin Barb runner-up Beat The Retreat, a former Alistair Gordon runner,  is another highly regarded horse exported to further his career on the island.
