Woodbine Three-Timer For Red-Hot Ryan

He couldn't have wished for a better start

Just three weeks after arriving in Canada and winning on his first Woodbine ride, South African jockey Ryan Munger has made it a May month to remember forever, and booted his first treble home in his new homeland on Saturday.

Ryan and his wife Kelsey only left South Africa a matter of weeks back and celebrated the return of turf racing on a bright and warm May day – Northern Dancer’s birthday 62 years years ago – at Woodbine with a racemeeting that leaves the SA Jockey Academy graduate with six winners from 17 rides at an almost 36% win strike-rate.

Jennifer Morrison reports on www.canadianthoroughbred.com that Munger’s triple on Saturday began with  Tucci Holdings’s Hear Me Knocking a Bahaman Squall filly bred by Michaela and Karly Kemp and trained by Sid Attard. Hear Me Knocking won the CAD$ 7000 maiden claiming race with her ears pricked.

Munger then guided the speedy Quiet Maddelena to victory in race 5 for CAD$ 7 500 claiming for owners John Lennox and Centenntial Farms Inc. This filly was the 5th winner for trainer Ravendra Raghunath at the meeting.

The well bred Googly Eyes was nicely prepared to win a CAD$ 40 000 claiming/optional turf dash by trainer James Smith for owner Richard Lister. Googly Eyes was beautifully ridden by Munger crowned a memorable three-timer.
