Warren’s Clearly In Winning Form!

R10 000 buy has earned over R900 000

Winning Form’s brand new jockey Warren Kennedy maintained his relentless march towards the SA Championship title when he rounded off another top weekend at the office with a cucumber-cool ride to win the R120 000 Marula Sprint at Hollywoodbets Scottsville on Sunday for trainer Paul Peter.

The Sporting Post Personality of the week, Kennedy and Peter are trading at a 23% win strike-rate and while they may have expected even more, they ended what was a happy raid down to the KZN Capital City with a double – including the non black-type sprint feature.

It meant 5 weekend winners for Kennedy – he rode a treble at Turffontein on Saturday, including a double for another bang in-form trainer in Candice Dawson.

He is now on 146 winners – 45 ahead of nearest rival, Greg Cheyne.

The 5yo Rebel’s Champ, the Gr1 horse that still needs to realise his trainer’s expectations of him, looked the exotic banker and overcame a few serious traffic issues to register his ninth career win.

He held off Cumulus (14-1) by a quarter length, with the betting drifter and low flying Drunken Sailor (14-1) sneaking up on the wide outside to grab third.

The super consistent Rebel’s Champ’s win time for the 1200m straight was 69,10 secs. It was his first victory since the Decermber 2018 Gr3 Lebelo Sprint – and long overdue!

A bargain R10 000 purchase off the 2016 CTS August Two-Year-Old Sale, Rebel’s Champ is now a winner of 9 races for the Hyperpaint Syndicate, with 11 places from 33 starts for stakes of R925 775.

He was bred by the Nine Bridges Association Syndicate and is a son of 2009 Equus Champion Sprinter Rebel King (National Emblem) – and the first foal of the one-time winner Anne Bonny (Captain Al).

KZN log-leader Garth Puller and apprentice Luke Ferraris also enjoyed a good double on the hot afternoon.

    Frankie Zackey…Cecil I’m glad to hear you managed to win a few bucks today well done…Paul Peter’s yard is really flying out winners all over the show,, Paul is really doing a unbelievable job…It’s fantastic to see that Paul has taken the gamble to use Warren Kennedy as his stable Jockey and boy oh boy is it paying dividends,,they’ve really struck up a deadly relationship together…

    Thanks Frankie, I am gonna have a good go at the Met P6. I fancy Anton on a few including Hawwaam. Last year Anton won most of the big races on Met day, repeat?

    Agree, amazing how Warren is now riding at the top of his game, just on 40 yrs young. Oh yes, this man Paul Peter is a Master and future (soon) Champion trainer. Formidable team

    Regards 👍

    For me. This year, I don’t think DO IT AGAIN is going to make it.

    Mike de kock has never ridden a horse in a race …should stop scapegoating jockeys every time his horse meets a better opposition on a day …he did the same with Striker when his filly was beaten in Cape Town…a few years ago. ..last durban season he did the same to Gavin Lerena …the truth is they all met the better horses on the day ….clearly Hawaam can’t beat the best miler (in Vardy ) …Marcus was merely doing exactly the same what Gavin did with Rainbow bridge..and succeeded in finishing second to the best miler..baring unsettled start. .Hawaam would have fought for minor cheque. ..all those horses can beat a classic miler in his domain. ..we can’t wait to see Hawaam repelling Rainbow bridge with Twist of fate , Vardy, Bunker hunt and Do it again all scrambling for crumbs. …or alternatively, Vardy can only change the above order by doing what his family has failed to do ..winning a ten furlongs classic. .or if Hawaam is just a hype. .then rainbow bridge will win the met ..( (Hawaam, Rainbow bridge and Vardy …pick six leg)


    Lovely Scraping paint, would you by any chance be related to Mr. Huddlestone ?
