Ensuing Sneaks Into Gold Rush Picture

Cape Met Day - 28 January 2023

Owner Rikesh Sewgoolam and veteran Milnerton conditioner Vaughan Marshall have further strengthened their R7,5 million WSB Gold Rush claims with the smart William Longsword gelding Ensuing an eyecatching winner at Hollywoodbets Kenilworth last Wednesday.

Bred by leading Gauteng owner Laurence Wernars, Ensuing has won 3 of his last 4 starts over the sprints, but has decent early form over a mile to the graded stakes placer Royal Victory, who showed up well in the Gr1 Premiers Champion Stakes, Gr2 Dingaans and Gr3 Graham Beck Stakes.

Ensuing has come in from nowhere to position 21 on the latest log and trainer Vaughan Marshall has confirmed that the Gold Rush is definitely an option.

“He has been consistent over the sprints but the mile is well within his range. He is a lovely horse,” added Vaughan.

The innovative R7,5 million Gold Rush will be run over 1600m on Cape Met day, 28 January 2023, and is based on the same concept as The Everest in Australia.

Owner Rikesh Sewgoolam holds one of 16 prospectors tickets and has multiple choices in his hunt for the treasure at this stage!
