Gimme A Gatecrasher!

Yeni judges it sweetly

An optimistically hot pace off a tailwind in the home straight may have played right into the hands of recent Greyville polytrack maiden winner Kaydens Pride who finished with a flourish to win the R150 000 Listed Gatecrasher Stakes on Saturday.

The well-fancied Mike de Kock duo of Ehsaan and Alramz dominated the betting and the race itself, with Randall Simons riding a confident race out front on Ehsaan, as he saw stalked by Anton Marcus on Alramz.

Into the home straight, Alramz came around the pacesetter and took it up looking strong with 250m to go.

Muzi Yeni had always been five lengths off the top two on the Natie Kotzen-trained Kaydens Pride.

As the leader started tiring, Kaydens Pride ground away and Yeni got the big colt up in the final strides to win more easily than the 0,60 length margin suggests.

The winner’s time was 84,5 secs.

Mike Miller longshot Bound By Duty bounced out of the pack for third  a further length back.

Ehsaan ran downfield after his exertions took their toll.

Kaydens Pride was purchased off the 2018 KZN Yearling Sale for R110 000 and has now won two races from three starts for stakes of R154 375.

The Nadeson Park Stud bred son of Gimmethegreenlight (More Than Ready) is out of the one -time winning Shoe Danzig mare, Red Apple.

He can only improve over ground.

    Agree, looks a decent sort, great ride from Muzi.

    Well Done to Andrew Harrison tipping this one confidently, but I reckon a lot of us got stuck in Race 8.

    Next time.
