The Capetonians have arrived in force at Summerveld for the SA Champions Season which starts on Friday 1 May.
On Monday the powerful Justin Snaith outfit arrived and 24 hours later Dean Kannemeyer’s team arrived in their winter conquest for glory on the East Coast.
Kannemeyer, whose fourteen-strong team travelled from Milnerton, boasts one of his best attacks in many seasons and a notable athlete to alight from the New Turf Carriers float was unbeaten recent Cape Nursery winner, Delta Queen.
The well-related daughter of Var is an exciting prospect and is being targetted at the Gr1 Allan Robertson Championship at Hollywoodbets Scottsville in May.
Included in Kannemeyer’s string was last season’s top 2yo African Warrior as well as the handsome Flower Alley grey Azores, who ran a smart races on the fringes in the Cape Derby.
Warren Lenferna reported on www.goldcircle.co.za that Justin Snaith sent up his first batch of 11 horses from the Cape to settle in to the KZN yard.
Dual Vodacom Durban July winner Do It Again walked off the float like he owned the place and and looked a million dollars.
He had travelled straight from Drakenstein Stud where he was rested.
There will be more horses transferring to KZN from the Snaith yard later in the month and Vaughan Marshall’s string was due to arrive later on Monday.
Other trainers will arrive over the next few weeks.
The Gold Circle media team said that they would go out of their way to welcome the visitors and ensure the coverage on social media is great for all to enjoy.
What a breath of fresh air!
