SA Horse Of The Year Summer Pudding made it eight wins from eight starts when she turned a Fillies & Mares Pinnacle Stakes at Turffontein on Saturday into a well-paid preparatory gallop for the forthcoming World Sports Betting Gr1 Gauteng Summer Cup.

A ruling big-race favourite with Hollywoodbets, she shortened to 22-10 for the 2000m handicap on 28 November, after a faultless return in her first start as a 4yo.

The prolific daughter of Silvano tracked her pacesetting stablemate Elusive Force before drawing clear with jockey Warren Kennedy looking both left and right.

For the record, she started at 12-10 and beat Rouge Allure by 2 lengths in a time of 99,60 secs for the 1600m.

Showing no ill effects after an 18 week break following her last term win in the Gr1 Woolavington 2000, Summer Pudding looked a picture in the preliminaries and trainer Paul Peter will be relieved that the big day plans are on track.

Peter told the Sporting Post in a recent interview that his charge will relocate to Eric Sands at Milnerton in December, with an eye on the Gr1 Paddock Stakes and Gr1 Cape Met.

WSB Gauteng Summer Cup entries close at 11h00 on Monday 16 November with declarations by 11h00 on Tuesday 17 November. The maximum size of the field is 20 runners.
