Stenger Gelding Is On The Up

Non-Black Type Egoli Mile

In a knockout blow for many exotic punters, Chase Maujean and veteran lady trainer Diane Stenger teamed up with the consistent gelding Mastership to win the Non Black-Type R200 000 Egoli Mile at Turffontein on Sunday.

Gelding has proven a gamechanger for the progressive galloper, who has now won three on the trot since shedding his maiden tag on 20 April.

Ridden with restraint some lengths off the pace set by Judgement Day, Mastership (20-1) stayed on powerfully down the inside to beat the 33-1 shot Jury’s Out by 0,40 lengths in a time of 98,45 secs.

The tote favourite Presley (9-4) was given every chance by Richard Fourie, but had no answers and was beaten a further 0,35 lengths away in third.

Winning rider Chase Maujean confirmed that gelding has made all the difference, and he expects him to go further in time and suggested that there is scope for improvement.

Bred by longstanding racing supporters, Cecil Baitz and his Aussie based Veterinarian son Gary the winner is by Varsfontein Jet Master stallion Master Of My Fate out of the terrific nine-time winning Argonaut mare, Clear Sailing. Bred by Geoff Armitage,the latter is out of the five-time winning daughter of Goldkeeper, Clear Up.

A R200 000 BSA November 2yo Sale graduate, Mastership, who is raced by Messrs De Andrade and Gaskell, has won 3 races with 6 places from 10 starts for stakes of R349 375.
