Snaith Bullet Hits The Target

Son of What A Winter improves smartly

Another feature, and also run at Juvenile plate conditions, this time for the boys and contested for the first time as part of Cape Racing’s rejuvenated and stakes-boosted juvenile programme, the R200 000 Hollywoodbets Coomonwealth Plate produced an exciting finish at Hollywoodbets Kenilworth on Saturday.

With the holiday crowds filtering through the gates as the day progressed, racing fans were treated to a outstanding display of jockeyship by local hero Richard Fourie, who got Speeding Bullet home after a protracted scuffle over the final 150m.

Showing the benefit of a promising first run, the well-supported Speeding Bullet came right back to hold off an improved Pompei Warning in a close call.

Promising Snaith first-time William West, who was reported to be catching pigeons at home, ran third.

In a dramatic sequel, JP van Der Merwe, rider of Pompei Warning, weighed in over-weight and an objection by the clerk of sales saw the Piet Steyn runner disqualified.

Racing in the interests of Greg Bortz and Gina Goldsmith, the winner was bred by Sean Jerrier and cost R400 000 at sale.

The winner is a son of Equus champion What A Winter (Western Winter) out of the twice winning Jet Master mare, Bulleteer.

Now a winner of 1 race with a place from two starts, he took his stakes tally to R130 150.
