Kenilworth Hosts Features

De Kock and Tarry may launch attack

Next Saturday sees the running of the first graded races of the Cape Summer Season at Kenilworth as the R400 000 Gr2 Western Cape Fillies Championship and the R250 000 Gr3 Cape Classic take pride of place.

It is good to see Highveld-based trainers Mike de Kock and Sean Tarry considering taking on the local hopes.

Classy Ghaala could make the trip

Michael Clower reports on www.goldcircle.co.za that De Kock has nominated Premier’s Champion and Joburg Spring Challenge runner-up Alyaasaat for the Cape Classic and Ghaalla (a close-up third in the Jo’bug Fillies Spring Challenge) for the Western Cape Fillies Championship – formerly the Choice Carriers and before that the Odessa. De Kock, successful with Ektifaa two years ago and with Phillipa Johnson in 2003, has also entered Nafaayes who has won two out of three.

Sweet Mary Lou, Anneka and Sally Called are the three Tarry entries for the 1 400m Grade 2 and the three-time champion trainer has also entered two for the Cape Classic including top-rated Chimichuri Run, who was third in both the SA Nursery and the Gold Medallion.
