This Cat’s Too Cool

Sprint feature run in decent time

A thrilling finish rounded off the Flamingo Park Festival programme on Saturday when the consistent One Cool Cat finally picked up his first local victory when he finished well to win the R135 000 WSB Sprint.

The start is vital over the 1000m straight and after Harmston Herald jumped sideways at the gates, there were only eleven to worry about as Isphan and Letdagoodtimesroll led them. The eventual winner One Cool Cat was about five lengths off the pace in midfield.

At the 300m Letdagoodtimesroll continued to go well down the inside as Collen Storey brought One Cool Cat through to tackle him.

These two looked set to duel for the trophy until the 6yo mare, Caribbean Bay popped up between them and made it a three-way tussle.

In the end, One Cool Cat was going best and he won at 10-1 by a head in a a very quick 57,14 secs.

The 20-1 Caribbean Bay was full value for her second place as she shaded Letdagoodtimesroll.

The fancied Louis Goosen pair of Varbration and Vincente failed to fire and finished out of the money.

The winner, who races for Haras Del Carmo Pty Ltd and was formerly with Tyrone Zackey, was tuned to the minute by Corrie Lensley and looked overdue to win in this centre.

A R100 000 National Yearling Sale purchase, he was bred by Highflyer Stud and is by the ill-fated Tiger Ridge out of the very quick seven time winning Fine Edge mare, Sharp Edge.

One Cool Cat is a winner of 4 races with 12 places from 36 starts for total stakes of R399 300.
