Supreme Spies Starts July Day

Bloodstock SA Sales Cup Fillies

Punters got a flying start to Vodacom Durban July day under sunny skies at Hollywoodbets Greyville on Saturday, courtesy of Lyle Hewitson and Corne Spies.

The tote favourite Supreme Quest showed the benefit of her race experience when she ran out a convincing winner of the R400 000 Bloodstock SA Sales Cup for fillies.

Restricted to eligible graduates of the 2020 BSA National 2yo Sale, the 1300m contest hosted a field of 13 fillies at level weights.

Going off at 5-2, Supreme Quest had the run of the race from her 1 gate and showed no signs of uncertainty, despite it being her first run in KZN.

She was produced at the 300m marker and carried too many guns for the fancied, but lesser experienced, Big Burn (5-2), whom he beat by 3,50 lengths.

Alyson Wright’s One Night In Paris (6-1) ran third.

Supreme Quest clocked 78,22 secs for the 1300m.

A R90 000 National 2yo Sale graduate, the winner was bred by Gold Star Stud and has now earned R264 000 for 2 wins and 3 places from 5 starts.

A daughter of Maine Chance stallion Querari,  she is out of the once winning Lecture mare, Supreme Lecture.
