Thought That(NZ) Another Winner For King's Chapel

Thought That winning his second race from five starts, as yet unplaced.

Thought That(NZ), a four year old son of King's Chapel got up to win over 1200m easily by over two lengths in New Zealand, for the second time from five starts.

The chestnut gelding who is a dead ringer for his sire in looks has placed second three times, yet to be out of the money from all his starts over 1000m - 1200m in all types of going. Described as having a lovely fluent action and trained by Ellis Winslow, the gelding is out of Karen Coup(NZ) by Volksraad.

King Prawn placed once again at the same track on the same day, in the Southland Cup over 1200m. The nine year old gelding out of Prawn by Beaufort Sea (Nashua) has been the epitome of soundness having had 79 career starts, winning eight and placing in 40 of them - winning and placing from 1500m - 2500m and Stakes Placed in several.

Locally King's Chapel has had several more places since the beginning of October, with Bush Hill-bred Chapel Queen placing from all four of her starts at Greyville and Scottsville for trainer and part owner Dennis Bosch and H C N Da Costa.

Grey filly Daenerys, out of Fard mare Hat Trick, has also placed from just her second start for trainer Lezanne Forbes and owners Messrs G E Stainbank, C Fenwick, Ravi Naidoo, A E Volsum & A C H Volsum.

Three year old filly Chapel House (pictured right) is finding her feet over 1600m for trainer Gary Rich, placing in her last two starts out at both Greyville and Scottsville for owner Mr AW Johnson.

King's Chapel himself was a Stakes winner at two years but old became "an absolute Champion" at age three in New Zealand, including Horse Of The Year.

He stands for a fee of R15 000 this season.
