A Long Way And So Close!

New Turf Carriers Gr3 Western Cape Stayers

In one of the most exciting finishes of the World Sports Betting Cape Town Met afternoon at Hollywoodbets Kenilworth on Saturday, Corne Orffer got the Querari gelding Master Redoute up to win the R500 000 New Turf Carriers Gr3 Western Cape Stayers in the final stride.

In the tightest finish of the day, Corne Orffer gets Master Redoute up on the outside to beat Triple Time (Van Niekerk) on the inside, with Aragosta (Fourie, red and white) and Nebraas (Lerena) in the mix (Pic - Candiese Lenferna)

The last of the nine features on the bumper day, the 2800m contest is always a crowd pleaser as they jump in front of the revamped stands.

And the 2024 renewal will go down as producing entertainment at the start and finish, as Orffer rode a sweetly judged race – heart attack for stuff for the connections and backers – as Master Redoute (25-2) dug deep and got his nose down to pip the 33-10 Triple Time under a determined Grant van Niekerk.

Mike de Kock’s Gr1 winner Aragosta (14-10) was a neck away in third, with former champion stayer Nebraas (6-1) producing another great effort in fourth.

The top four finished within three quarters of a length of each other.

It was good to see dual Met winning owner Sabine Plattner on course to witness Master Redoute improve on his fifth behind Salvator Mundi in 2023.

The winner is a La Plaisance home-bred son of Querari (Oasis Dream) from the twice winning Redoute’s Choice mare, Lady Redoute.

Now a winner of 4 races with 8 places from 21 starts, Master Redoute took his stakes total to R898 288.

The next racemeeting at Hollywoodbets Kenilworth is on Wednesday 31 January.

Enjoy the replay…
