In the absence of any Cape raiders, Sharon Kotzen produced the decent stayer Multi Gold in fine fettle to win the R110 000 Lakeside Handicap run over 2400m at Fairview on Friday.
Easy to back at 7-1 in the nine horse field, Charles Ndlovu had Multi Gold relaxed near the rear as Omaha Tribe set the gallop ahead of Sheet Weaver and Chappaquidick.
The leaders came back to the bunch into the 400m as Ndlovu had Multi Gold in full stride to nab the consistent Evolver, who had looked a winner as the battle developed in the run for home.
At the line, Multi Gold was going the better and he got the measure of Evolver to win by a length in a time of 152.15 secs and frank himself as a stayer with a future in the Eastern Cape.
Sheet Weaver plodded late for third a half length further back, with the 7yo Frikkie completing the quartet.
A 4yo gelded son of Ideal World (Kingmambo), the winner is out of the three-time winning Silvano mare, Bibbety Bobbety.
He was bred by the winning trainer’s former boss, Ormond Ferraris.
Multi Gold has won 5 races with 3 places from 14 starts for stakes of R289 575.
Yvette Bremner’s yard continues to fire and they saddled a treble on the afternoon, while Sharon Kotzen and Gavin Smith registered doubles.
