A Classic Cocktail!

World Sports Betting Gr2 Fillies Guineas

Unbeaten in her first three starts in the Eastern Cape, Vercingetorix daughter Peach Daiquiri caused the first feature upset of the 2023 Champions Season when she stormed through late to win the R450 000 World Sports Betting Gr2 Fillies Guineas at Hollywoodbets Greyville on Saturday.

Having her first run back over a mile since a well beaten effort in the WSB Gr1 Cape Fillies Guineas last December, the Playgate SA raced Peach Daiquiri (33-1) showed the benefit of two sprint pipe-openers and came through from midfield in a scrappy race.

Out of the trouble down the inside, Louis Mxothwa steered the Alec Laird-trained filly to a 0,60 length victory in a time of 98,06 secs.

Plattner flagbearer Saartjie (25-2) ran out of her skin to grab second, ahead of the scrapping Drakenstein pair of Hold My Hand (5-1) and the more fancied Golden Hostess (9-4).

Aldo Domeyer, rider of Golden Hostess, objected against the third-placed finisher on the grounds of interference, but had his protest overruled.

Bred by Maine Chance, Peach Daiquiri is Vercingetorix’s 28th stakes winner out of the twice-winning Querari mare, Pomona. She hails from the family of Punta Arenas and Paraca.

Now a winner of 4 races from 7 starts, Peach Daiquiri has earned R428 375.
