Bass-Robinson top two in feature

Candice Bass-Robinson has a powerful crop of over 60 2yo’s at her disposal this term and she enjoyed the pleasure of watching her duo fight out the finish of the R125 000 Listed Perfect Promise Sprint at a quiet Kenilworth on Sunday.

Mrs Robinson won this feature last year with the crack What A Winter filly Magical Wonderland  and she looks to have another decent bunch of youngsters on her hands judging by debut winners Lesedi La Rona and Nous Voila who fought out a thrilling finish.

Aldo Domeyer was aboard Nous Voila, the more fancied of the pair, and she looked a winner when cruising into the lead at the 250m marker, with Lesedi La Rona still finding her stride.

But the two came together and went head and head to the line – Grant van Niekerk getting the Drakenstein owned and bred Durbanville debut winner to put her head down at the right time.

A short head separated them with the winner clocking 72.95 secs for the 1200m.

Third placed Coral Bay, still a maiden, was four lengths back in third, with dual winning topweight Carioca running fourth.

A daughter of Trippi (End Sweep), Lesedi La Rona is out of the three-time winner Barberton Daisy (Western Winter) who won up to 2500m.

Lesedi La Rona (named after a large diamond) is now unbeaten in two starts and took her earnings to R128 125.

    are you kidding me… aldo domeyer never moved on the favourite … the stewards should investigate this.. well this is south africa … i expect no enquiry

    1. Editor says:

      No mention in Stipes Report.
      The horse moved up easily and Aldo got serious when challenged by his stablemate

  2. gavin says:

    that is my point… he was over confident .. he sat too long.. he let her go to late only when challenged.

  3. Chris Swart says:

    Not the first to be beaten by another juvenile when challenged won’t be the last.

    Rather not talk from the pocket..

    1. gavin says:
