Happy Birthday Richie!

R250 000 Joburg Tourism Gr3 Carry On Alice Stakes

Winning Form’s national log-leading rider Richard Fourie had to wait nine races to celebrate his birthday with a winner. That came in the form of the 4yo Rafeef filly Mrs Browning, who won the R250 000 Joburg Tourism Gr3 Carry On Alice Stakes for another patient man in trainer Sean Tarry.

It must be some seasons since Sean Tarry didn’t celebrate a winner on a big day, and Mrs Browning came to the rescue of the multiple champion trainer as she responded to a powerful Fourie ride, and put the cap on a R71 913 Pick 6 payout.

Always in the firing line, Mrs Browning (28-10) was unleashed in the final 200m to hold off a late challenge from Coldhardstare (14-1) by 1,25 lengths in a time of 67,24 secs for the 1160m.

Ice Star (25-2) finished best of the rest, and was just under a length further back in third.

Raced by the Wernars family, Harry Willson and Johnny Peter’s Hyperpaint Syndicate, the winner was bred by Wilgerbosdrift & Mauritzfontein.

She is a daughter of Redoute’s Choice stallion Rafeef (AUS) out of the Galileo mare Miss Galidora (IRE) – the latter placed at 2000m in the UK!

This was Mrs Browning’s first stakes win and she took her tally to 4 wins with 5 places from 11 starts for stakes of R444 750.

Tarry continued his luck into the last race when Gavin Lerena steered Jet Dynasty to victory, to put the seal on a tough day at the office.
