Boom! Bling Again

Capetown Noir's son on the up

South Africa’s only father-and-son training team of Mike and Adam Azzie commenced their Highveld Spring Season in terrific style when Capetown Noir’s progressive son Bohica won the R85 000 Listed Spring Spree Stakes on the Turffontein inside track on Saturday.

With WSB Gold Cup winning rider S’manga Khumalo in a choice vein of form, Bohica, who has shown he is far more effective over the sprint cut, overcame the wide gate to register a ‘Bling’ hat-trick and win the season opener in the fashion of a horse who could make a name for himself this season.

Bohica went from a 99 to 105 MR , incurring the maximum penalty for his Pinnacle Plate victory last time when beating the accomplished Mr Flood 3,25 lengths in receipt of 10kgs. With S’manga Khumalo partnering him with 1,5kgs overweight, he actually ran to a 112

He was entered, but never ran in the Gr1 Mercury Sprint last Saturday at Hollywoodbets Greyville.

A handsome son of Equus Champion Miler and a Cape Derby and L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate winner in Capetown Noir (Western Winter), the Summerhill Stud-bred winner is out of the unraced Mullins Bay mare, Wysiwyg – a half sister to Model K from the family of Mannequin and Kalami.

A R300 000 graduate of the 2018 Summerhill Ready To Run Sale, Bohica has won 5 races with 5 places from 14 starts for stakes of R291 175.
