Third went to Detzky's Tao, 1,75 lengths off the winner, by Modus Vivendi(USA)
out of Green Sunshine by Linney Head. He has now placed four times.
Spartan has a half-sister
foaled last year at Bush Hill Stud by Ravishing.

Sale coming up April with a half-sister
to The Mouseketeer by Miesque's
Approval, out of Look Sharp. Look Sharp has a Mullin's Bay colt
at foot this year.
Bush Hill will have strong representation at the KZN sale where they will
have siblings to both Spartan (a filly
by Mullins Bay) and Sir Isaac (a
filly by Mon Sang) along with a host of other exciting prospects by a wide
range of stallions.
Warwick commented after the result "It is always exciting for any stud to
have a winner, so to run
1,2,3 is simply fantastic and simply gives everyone
on the stud a boost."
