Hostess Sets The Standard

Daughter of Gold Standard shows her class

Milnerton combination Aldo Domeyer and Candice Bass-Robinson are riding the crest of a wave and after their smashing Gr1 success at Turffontein on Saturday, they grabbed a double at a sunny Hollywoodbets Kenilworth on Wednesday.

After Ridgemont Highlands bred Rafeef son Lunch Money shed his maiden with an eyecatching victory in the opener, it was the Drakenstein home-bred Golden Hostess who rounded off her prep for the Champions Season on the East Coast, with a fluent victory in the inaugural R175 000 The Magnolia.

Outpaced early on in the non black-type 1200m event, Golden Hostess was given every chance with some confident off the pace riding.

Sweeping up the outside, Golden Hostess (9-2) rattled home to beat Kwinta’s Light (7-2) by 1,75 lengths in a time of 71,27 secs.

Happy Chance (8-1) was 0,30 lengths back in third.


A winner of 3 races with 6 places from 10 starts, Golden Hostess took her stakes bank to R422 688 and is a very well-related Drakenstein home-bred daughter  of Trippi stallion Gold Standard  out of  the US bred French Deputy mare, Hosta – a half sister to US Gr1 winner, Colstar.

Golden Hostess is likely to line up in the Gr2 KZN Fillies Guineas at Hollywoodbets Greyville on 6 May.
