De Kock Filly Headed For States

Withdrawn from the big race on 6 July

Unbeaten in 7 starts – Gimme A Nother heads for USA (Pic-Chase Liebenberg)

Star filly Gimme A Nother has been withdrawn from the Hollywoodbets Gr1 Durban July and Mike de Kock made a short announcement on Monday afternoon as to her future plans.

He said: “After consulting with Gimme A Nother’s owners, Jessica and Steven Jell, a decision was made to plan a campaign for her in the United States. I will be flying to the US this week to explore our best racing options for her. If all goes well, we’ll be sending a couple of other runners with her to continue their careers in the US, and hopefully we can attract other top South African runners to race there.”

Mike said that it was unlikely that Gimme A Nother would race in South Africa again.

“We’ll be shipping her as soon as we have an agreed course of action,” he noted.

Gimme A Nother, a three-year-old by Gimmethegreenlight out of Nother Russia, is unbeaten in seven career starts. Her wins include the Gr1 Wilgerbosdrift SA Fillies Classic and the Gr1 TAB Empress Club Stakes.
