National Park Is Horse Of The Year

Veteran George Uren acknowledged

The East Cape Racing Awards for the 2018/19 season were held at a function at Fairview Racecourse on Wednesday evening.

In what must have been a unanimous choice, the Yvette Bremner-trained Gauteng Guineas winner National Park was voted Horse Of The Year.

Also clinching the 3yo colt/gelding trophy, he is a son of Gimmethegreenlight (More Than Ready) out of six-time winner, Fancy Park (Camden Park).

A R240 000 National Yearling Sale purchase, National Park was bred by Knysna-based Rob Knuppe’s Missing U Syndicate, who also races the gelding in partnership with Hedley McGrath, Bryn Ressell and Mark Wright.

National Park has not seen action since May, when he chased Twist Of Fate home in the KZN Guineas at Hollywoodbets Greyville.
