Bush Hill Success On KZN Breeders Race Day
Bush Hill Stud and Shadwell Stud enjoyed a good day's racing at the recent KZN Breeders Race Day held at Clairwood.
Irish Flame, the exciting new Gr 1 resident sire at Bush Hill for the upcoming season, sponsored the second race of the day.
Shadwell-bred Injaazaat (by Muhtafal) took home race six from Bush-Hill bred Qahal's Applause (Kahal), Dirtydealin Mamma (Miesque's Approval) and Putinka (Eyeofthetiger). This field also included Dance Alley, a Jam Alley half-sister to Dancewiththedevil and Las Ramblas. Trained by a very happy Michael Roberts, Injaazaat is owned by Mr Anil Sewchuran.
Zimbabwe's top rated two year old Newton Power, who made a smashing 12-length eye opening debut last year, won the seventh race for a stake of R200 000 by a nose from another King Of Kings gelding Reign Victorious - it was a first and second for breeders Bush Hill Stud - they also stand the mare Lee Danzi on behalf of of a breeder who is the dam of Reign Victorious (bred by Stormquest CC). Newton Power is by Newton out of Slew The Red mare Red Spirit. Trained by J A Janse van Vuuren, he is owned by Messrs G P and K M Mansour, J M Eaton, G M Littleford, S H Murray and V C Veeramootoo and Mr and Mrs P C Rugg.
