Reports reaching the Sporting Post indicate that the talented gelded son of Ideal World has just come off a working holiday at Soetendal in the Western Cape and will be heading to Durban for the SA Champions Season.

The famous red and white silks of Mike and Norma Rattray have been carried by some great horses over many decades.

Rattray famously brought the Santa Gertrudis cattle breed to South Africa, founded Mala Mala game reserve and most significantly for SA horseracing, imported multiple champion sire Western Winter to the country.

He operated the iconic Lammerskraal Stud for many years.

    Very glad to see that Rainbow Bridge will continue to be trained by Eric Sands. Would have been a cruel blow to lose it to a local trainer
