Bronkhorst Breaks Ice

Gutsy mare outguns them

World Sports Betting-sponsored Randjesfontein trainer Fanie Bronkhorst made a sparkling start to his new career when he saddled the gutsy mare Running Brave to win the R125 000 Gr3 London News Stakes at Turffontein on Saturday.

Bronkhorst, who only took out his owner-trainer licence recently, saddled his first winner when the recent WSB Gauteng Summer Cup runner-up powered home as a 2-1 favourite to withstand a dogged challenge from the improving Expressfromtheus to win under regular pilot Muzi Yeni by three quarters of a length in  a time of 109,99 secs.

Bred by Summerhill Stud, Running Brave is a daughter of The Fort Stud’s Brave Tin Soldier ( Storm Cat) out of the Jet Master mare Movingandgrooving and cost just R30 000 off the National 2yo Sale.

Running Brave has won 8 races with 12 places from 30 starts for stakes of R1 700 274.
