Festival Of Fire, by Kahal
out of Fuel The Fire by Russian Revival, won the Gr 3 Joburg Spring Fillies & Mares Challenge by almost 1.5 lengths. The three-year old filly set a new course record in the process with a time of 1.25.46.
Trained by Mike de Kock and ridden to victory by Derreck David, she is bred and owned by Mr CJ Saunders and Lady O'Reilly, bred and raised at Invermooi Stud.
It is her third victory from just four starts, placing third behind Felix The Cat at Scottsville in September. A very convincing win, she defeated a field that included the likes of Without Malice and Berry Blaze(IRE) - a filly that has placed third behind champion mare Igugu(AUS).
Fuel The Fire has produced a yearling colt by Kahal. Congratulations to all concerned with this talented filly.
Champion sire Kahal (Machiavellian
- Just A Mirage by Green Desert) stands at Bush Hill Stud
this season for a fee of R40 000.
