De Kock’s Champions Cup Power Punch

Buffalo Bill Cody better than Hawwaam

Mike de Kock’s Buffalo Bill Cody and year younger stablemate Soqrat will contest the R1 million Gr1 Champions Cup at Hollywoodbets Greyville on Super Saturday, 27 July.


Buffalo Bill Cody, a  four-year-old son of Redoute’s Choice, returning from a seven-month rest, made his accomplished rival Cirillo look ordinary when he slammed him by 3.25-lengths in a Pinnacle Plate over 1600m at Turffontein on Sunday 7 July.

Mike commented: “I’ve always thought that Buffalo Bill Cody is a little better than Hawwaam. He is very good and the win over Cirillo proves it. We’ll be taking Buffalo Bill and Soqrat to Durban at the end of the month for the Champion Stakes. Hawwaam and Barahin will be rested.”
