Top Filly Back In Training

Drakenstein star aims for Sceptre-Majorca double

The 2019 Majorca Stakes winner Clouds Unfold was a picture of good health at Candice Bass-Robinson’s Milnerton yard under grey skies on Monday as she prepares for the forthcoming Cape Summer Season.

A first Gr1 winner for her treble Equus champion sprinter sire What A Winter (Western Winter) when she beat the older champion Lady In Black on Met day in the Majorca, the winner of 7 of her 9 starts suffered an injury after her arrival at Summerveld for the SA Champions Season and never raced on the East Coast last season.

The injury was not career-threatening and the very valuable Drakenstein owned and bred chestnut is now in training and obviously  enjoying life as she stepped out under her Groom Ayanda, with our photographer capturing the action.

“Clouds Unfold is sound again after her setback in Durban. She is trotting and back in work. We are preparing her for the Cape Summer Season where she will be aimed at the Sceptre Stakes and Majorca Stakes, two races which she won last term,” Candice Bass-Robinson told the Sporting Post on Monday morning.
