Projected R3 Million Pick 6 For Turffontein Finale

The first is off 11h50

The Championship 2024 Finale will be held at Turffontein this afternoon and ten races are carded.

There is a R500 000 Pick 6 carryover with a likely pool of R3 million. The first leg of the exotic is off at 13h35.

There is a Jackpot of Gr2 races including the TAB Camellia Stakes, TAB Igugu Stakes, TAB Colorado King Stakes and the Jehan Malherbe Senor Santa Stakes.

The first is due off at 11h50.

He was super-impressive when winning on debut over 1000m on the Inside course.

Despite getting away to an awkward start, he showed pace and won with a ton in hand.

The son of Buffalo Bill Cody could be anything and he can keep his unbeaten record intact.

Gilded Butterfly from the Stuart Pettigrew stable takes her place in the Gr 2 TAB Igugu Stakes.

She ran a fair race in the Gr1 TAB Empress Club Stakes last time.

She is having her peak run today and should be cherry-ripe.

Gavin Lerena is booked to ride and if getting away to a clean start, she can return to winning ways.
