The star Paul Peter winning machine was disappointing in Saturday’s Gr1 Cartier Paddock Stakes and after finishing in midfield, was reported to be coughing and had evidence of mucuous in her respiratory tracts.

“It would have been too much of a rush to get her better for the Met. She is a very valuable filly and we thought it best to take her home and regroup for the Highveld Season,” confirmed trainer Paul Peter.

    That makes it a lot easier for African Night Sky then.

    Summer Pudding is scratched from the Cape Town Met Gr 1, Tuesday 12 January 2021 @13h54. No reason given.

  3. Mike Miles says:

    Magic mushrooms William?

  4. Logan Naidoo says:

    I’m with you on that one. Exacta with Golden Ducat, I presume.

  5. Deon Els says:

    another Higveld star that only shines against local opposition. Don’t crown a champ till you compete in the cape season

  6. Dev Govender says:

    A sensible decision by all concerned. The Champions Challenge is the right course and distance for her and it gives the team enough time to get her back to her best.

  7. shane says:

    the fillies race with an injured summer pudding was 2 sec faster than the colts. if she ran against golden ducat she wins by 5L. ???
    thats a sick pudding?
    just how good was and is queen supreme?

  8. Colin Samsodien says:

    Summer Pudding had no chance of winning the Met. She can continue her winning ways in Johannesburg where the horses are not in the same class as the Cape horses.

  9. Colin Samsodien says:

    The Paddock Stakes results shows how good Captain’s Ransom are, beaten Clouds Unfold and the two three old fillies that finished third and fourth.
    I hope Snaith enter her for the Majorca.

  10. Gavin Maree says:

    Be nice to see the Cape Town horses running in Joburg sometime too. Always favors the Cape horses

  11. Tyco says:

    Golden ducat race had a very slow pace….plenty in the tank to make up for 2 seconds….but Queen supreme is a grade 1 winner…she is good for the met

  12. Sean says:

    Like to see those Cape Champions beat her at The big T, but they don’t come this way do they?


    A yard full of magic chickens & mushrooms, Mike

  14. Mike Miles says:

    William, you took so long to respond, checking on those mushrooms no doubt, that I had to go check what you were referring to.

    I’m taking the p..s and may your horse win. Not.
