Billy And Stincky Pop The Champagne

Bush Hill Stud bred daughter of Crusade catches eye

Hollywoodbets-sponsored Turffontein trainer Billy Ruiters celebrated a career peak moment at Turffontein on Saturday when Ryan Munger rode a cracker to keep Miss Daisy at her task to thwart the favourite Feather Boa in the R200 000 HSH Princess Charlene Gr3 Starling Stakes.

With the carryover Pick 6 falling just under 10% short of the R6 million projection , the opening feature on the Charity Mile raceday produced a thriller, with the Ruiters runner reversing the record of their last clash and holding Feather Boa to 0,20 lengths in a time of 86,75 secs.

JP van der Merwe produced the 20-1 Gimme A Shot down the outside and she ran a decent race to finish a further 0,30 lengths back in third.

Always in touch after Berengaria and None Other had set the pace, the gutsy R40 000 buy from the small yard got first run on the favourite and held her advantage to the wire to give owner Stincky Pooe and her trainer their biggest success to date.

Watch the replay here:

A R40 000 National 2yo Sale graduate, Miss Daisy was bred by Bush Hill Stud from Mr Greeley stallion Crusade out of the Count Dubois mare, Heliantha.

Miss Daisy is now a winner of 4 races with 5 places from 11 starts for stakes of R495 750.

The carryover Pick 6 was paying R10-70 after the opening leg.
