Golden Horse – Snaith Leans On Rio Querari

Off time is 15h53

The Gr1 Golden Horse Sprint is the topliner on Saturday’s Hollywoodbets Scottsville card.

The unfortunate late scratching due to a virus of We’re Jamming, who only flew up to KZN on Monday, has left Justin Snaith leaning heavinly on former Equus Champion Sprinter, Rio Querari.

Here are the connections’comments:

Gimme A Prince : “I think he is one of the best sprinters in this country. He’s doing exceptionally well”, Dean Kannemeyer.

Rio Querari: “He’s a class act. There’s a good chance that he could fight this out”, Justin Snaith.

William Robertson: “This is one of the group 1 sprints that we haven’t won as a stable yet, so we’re keenly looking forward to trying to add this one to our trophy rack”, Corne Spies.

We’re Jamming: “He flew in from Cape Town on Monday morning. We wouldn’t have travelled him all the way unless we thought he did warrant some respect off his rating”, Justin Snaith.

Bartholdi: “Last year’s runner up. He enjoys this track. If things go our way, he could be a massive runner”, Adam Azzie.

Supreme Warrior: “He’s been a bit disappointing of late. We’ve opted to put the blinkers on”, Adam Azzie.

Under Your Spell: “She’ll be competitive here. It is an open race”, Sean Tarry.

Surjay: “He suffered from a little bit of heat exhaustion after the Drill Hall Stakes. He’s doing exceptionally well at home. He’s absolutely flying”, James Crawford.

Seeking The Stars: “He looks magnificent, and his work has been superb”, Vaughan Marshall.

Thunderstruck: “He won the Medallion last year. I think he’s going to run really well”, Sean Tarry.

Countdown: “We’ve brought him back to sprints again and he’s come back to his form”, Glen Kotzen.

After The Rain: “He won’t be weighted best in the race. I expect a peak run from him. If he finishes in the money, I’ll be delighted for him”, Gareth van Zyl.

Gladatorian: “Probably not that well in at the weights. His best form is at Scottsville”, Stuart Ferrie.

Full Velocity: “Full Velocity has done very well as Scottsville. I expect her to run well, even though this is a big ask for her”, Sean Tarry.

Good Traveller: “He hasn’t hit his form for quite a while. I manage to get the handicapper to drop him. He’s fit and well and looking magnificent”, Michael Roberts.

Taikonaut: “His last run was in the Computaform Sprint, where he incurred quite a big penalty for running just off them.  We’re hoping for a good run”, Roy Magner.
