Dawson Ballerina To Lead Them A Dance

First is off at 12h30

Eight races are carded at the Vaal Racecourse this afternoon.

The first is due off at 12h30 and the lucky last is set for 16h35.

Hollywoodbets-sponsored Trainer Candice Dawson saddles Little Ballerina in Race 2.

She won a game race in her last start in the Gr2 Wilgerbosdrift SA Fillies Nursery.

Little Ballerina (Gavin Lerena) gets the better of KZN raider Just Reckless (Kabelo Matsunyane) last time out (Pic – Candiese Lenferna)

It must be noted that multiple horses from that form line have come out and won since. The daughter of Vercingetorix is the class horse in this race, and she should take a power of beating.

Walled Garden from the Joe Soma stable may be the horse to close off the meeting. He showed good improvement in his last start over 1200m on the Turffontein Inside course.

The way he stayed on at the finish that day was encouraging. He takes on weaker opposition this afternoon and if confirming his recent improvement, he should be the one to beat.
