Gold For Sharon Kotzen

Handily weighted Ideal World gelding outstays them

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.

    Great win Sharon Kotzen Racing! But Sporting Post why start the article with a negative…..”in the absence of cape raiders”

    1. Editor says:

      It’s not a negative Jack.
      It’s an observation.and it’s fairly relevant – the Cape visitors have been cleaning up week after week in the E Cape features.
      We are not saying Multi Gold won because there were no Cape visitors.

    Dear Editor. You point is made, but what you did not answer is the question as too why you start off the article so negatively. That point could have been made anytime in the article. Each racing venue has its own pro’s and con’s and a paper focused on racing should be highlighting all pros first and foremost. The only way to keep
    Racing going given other share of wallet competitors. Let’s be cognisant of that and keep
    Racing at the forefront, showing the pro’s of personalization, excitement and way more disclosure. Thank you in advance!

      Noted Belinda
      Was this non black-type feature reported on any other platform?

  4. Steve Reid says:

    I owned a horse that won this race in 2004 and I’m pretty sure that the distance in those days was 2800m. I wonder why the change in distance?

  5. Brian says:

    No negativity.

    Fact! There was an absence of Cape raiders. Where’s the negativity? By implication?

    Come on now, really!
