Kuda Sprint Pair’s Possible Return Clash

Is your horse in the rankings?

Vaughan Marshall’s impressive Kuda Sprint debut winner Agent Of Fortune and narrow SA Nursery runner- up Cirillo hold the joint top position on the latest log for the R2,5 million Ready To Run Stakes to be contested over 1400m at Kenilworth on 24 November.

The top duo fought out the finish of the R350 000 Kuda Sprint on Sun Met Day and their possible return clash in the Cape Summer could be a highlight of the restricted sales race.

A son of What A Winter, Agent Of Fortune was bred by Dr Veronique Kritzinger and originally sold for R240 000 on the 2017 CTS March Yearling Sale.

Described by his champion trainer Sean Tarry as a classic type, Cirillo is a son of Pomodoro and has won twice in eight starts – including multiple stakes placings.

He has won over 1400m and thus could hold the edge in terms of experience for the 1400m clash on Cape Merchants day at Kenilworth. Offered by Klawervlei (as agent), he was bought by Chris van Niekerk for R60 000 on the same sale.
