Double For Dawson

Juglall wins on July Day for second successive year

Having saddled her first winner two years ago to the month, Gauteng  trainer Candice Dawson made an impressive impact with a feature double at Greyville on Vodacom Durban July Day.

With her very competitive CK Racing string based just outside Randjesfontein on a private training establishment, Candice Dawson was thrilled with her major raceday  double of the KZN Yearling Sale Million and the Listed Thukela Handicap to bring the curtain down on the big afternoon.

Nooresh Juglall flew  in from Singapore to try and repeat his feat of a winner – he won the Gr2 Golden Horseshoe on Purple Diamond on July day 2017 – and the double digit odds about the grey Aussie-bred Infamous Fox, an improved character after gelding, looked fair value.

He was racing off a handy 52kg mark in the Thukela, where Drill Hall Stakes winner  Perovskia was all the race.

Candice Dawson – July day double

Currently lying at third on the Singapore log, the Mauritius-born Juglall – an SA Jockey Academy product – has developed into a polished rider and he paid tribute to his pregnant wife after steering Infamous Fox to a two length victory over the well-backed Perovskia, who was Jeff Lloyd’s final ride on African soil.

The winner clocked 97,85 secs and beat a smart field that included dual Gr1 winner, Eyes Wide Open and Gr1 LÓrmarins Queen’s Plate runner-up, Copper Force.

The winner was purchased for A$25 000 off the  Glastonbury Farms draft at the 2016 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale.

A son of champion second season sire and Gr1 sprinter Foxwedge (Fastnet Rock), Infamous Fox is out of the unraced French (Nadeem), a half-sister to the staying stakes winner Ovidio (Danehill Dancer), who was trained by Justin Snaith.

He has won 4 races with 2 places from 10 starts and took his bank to R331 750.
