Fortune Marble Shines Bright

Ridgemont bred son of Var looks talented

Vaal trainer Ashley Fortune’s smart recent maiden winner Big Blue Marble is the notable mover this week on the latest log for the R2,5 million CTS Ready To Run Stakes to be contested over 1400m at Kenilworth on 24 November.

Ashley Fortune trains Big Blue Marble

Bred by Ridgemont,  Big Blue Marble, a colt by Var out of Raise the Bar, was signed for by Mark Erasmus at R850 00 on the 2017 CTS Lanzerac Ready To Run Sale.

A handsome specimen, he was runner-up on debut and then skated home at the Vaal earlier this month to win his maiden in style by over 3 lengths under Aldo Domeyer.

He has come in from nowhere to joint tenth position on the log per 14 September.

The Fortune Team have been in a rich vein of form and Big Blue Marble is held in high regard as a galloper with a very bright future.

Vaughan Marshall’s impressive Kuda Sprint debut winner Agent Of Fortune and Sean Tarry’s narrow SA Nursery runner- up Cirillo continue to hold the joint top position on the log.
