The East Cape juvenile form took a square blow in the solar plexus when Justin Snaith raider Favorita demolished her eight rivals to cruise to a runaway success in the R150 000 Listed East Cape Fillies Nursery at Fairview on Friday.
Going off a weak 5-2 favourite, Favorita simply ran away from her rivals, including the undefeated Delicasea and Storyland, to win under Richard Fourie by an ever widening 9,75 lengths.
She beat debut winner Storyland (49-20) in a time of 69,98 secs.
Eternal Hope (6-1) was a further two lengths back in third.
Favorita had finished 2,25 lengths behind Delta Queen in the Cape Fillies Nursery last month – admittedly in less than ideal conditions – and this makes that form look very decent.
Bred and raced by Varsfontein, the winner is another success for the high-riding Gimmethegreenlight.
She is out of the unraced Var mare, Vermentino.
Favorita has won twice from four starts for two places and stakes of R161 875.
