Snaith Summer Tide Turns

Kwinta's Light takes off to win her first stakes race

The tide had to turn! Richard Fourie and Justin Snaith found an early season top gear at Hollywoodbets Kenilworth on Saturday and grabbed the first of the afternoon’s treble feature billing when Kwinta’s Light produced a sustained run to win the R150 000 Listed Laisserfaire Stakes.

In the Rockpool third race post-race interview after their narrow first winner of the afternoon, Justin observed: “When this happens it’s a sign that things are turning.” Rockpool had come from miles off from a 16 draw to snare the free-striding Selukwe on the line.

And how right he was to be!

In the very next race the diminutive Pacific Green launched a storming late run to win the Pick 6 opener, before Fourie again grabbed the limelight as Kwinta’s Light cut her opposition down with a sustained run down the centre to grab her maiden stakes win in a time of 65,14 secs.

Starting at 7-1, Kwinta’s Light beat the consistent favourite Stiptelik (4-1) by three quarters of a length, with Diana winner Santa Maria (5-1) running another game race in third.

A R550 000 Cape Premier Yearling Sale graduate, the winner is raced by Pamela Isdell and George Ragunan, and is a winner of 3 races with 9 places from 15  starts for stakes of R338 650.

Bred by Syrilla Stud, who are offering two well-bred lots at the forthcoming BSA November 2yo Sale, Kwinta is by champion sire Gimmethegreenlight (More Than Ready) out of the Kahal five time winner Kwinta.
