Cape Raiders Invade Summerveld

SA Champions Season warriors arrive

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!

    Welcome, Cape Town. Looking forward to some great racing and experience.
    all the luck.
    Let the games begin.

    Welcome back Muzi Yeni as well. The Rainbow nation is complete again. We missed you, see you at Scottsville soon.

    Also, CT members, enjoy the East coast, the warmest place to be in Winter.

    I can see a statue of D I A at Greyville if he wins The July again.

  3. Cameron James says:

    Will love that statue Cecil, he has a great chance of winning it again. Hes actually going to run on better weight terms with horses like Hawaam and Twist of Fate.

    It’s just his form thats my worry. Forms temporary though , class is permanent.

    Going through his previous form he certainly thrives in Durban. 12 to 1 surely Theres some value there.

    The current 3 year old crop doesn’t inspire much confidence in my opinion. Frankie is going to scream at Me, but Hawaam is not the horse people thought he was. So RB and DIA , are huge runners. He just needs to show me one encouraging run and it won’t be 12 to 1 for much longer. Lol.

    I looked long and hard, I just dont see any horse thats flown under the radar for me to even consider upsetting the big 2. If anything then maybe Twist of Fate.

    Exciting season ahead…

    Hello CJ, nice to hear from you.

    I agree with you, the 3yr olds this season, so many different winners. And 2200 m ?

    DIA obviously loves Durban, a prep or 2, and the July gallops is all he needs like last year. My opinion, write off CT runs, clearly something amiss.

    I’m gonna take the 12-1 at HWBets. Somehow I feel our Jhb bro Frankie is not so hot on Hawwaam anymore. But Hawwaam will win in Jhb ..

    You said it, Natal season, exciting stuff. Add the Jhb boys, good racing and banter await

    Cheers, talk soon

  5. Rian says:

    Hey Cameron, can’t see any 3 year olds doing well but a bit to early to ignore them, maybe the fillies better
    Just worried that DIA has lost his form and not manage to get it back
    Something like that never happened to him before, as he such an honest campaigner , so let’s hope he recovers

  6. Pops says:

    Elbump to you,Cecil. First race Sunday at Greyville there is a long shot called Cassius Colt running.
    All one can say is,Beware the Ides of March.

  7. Cecil Pienaar says:

    Goeie More Pops.

    Thank you, will check it out. Ides of March 🤗 unkucky for some

    Have a Good Day 👍

  8. Cecil Pienaar says:

    😂 Unlucky for some, suppose even kucky. LoL

  9. Pops says:

    Was definitely an unlucky day for Julius Caesar. And Cassius had a hand in it.
    So Ides of March many many years later Cassius( Colt) plots against form students.And stabs them in the back.
