Our bay filly Malkia, by Bezrin out of Juste Melieu by Mr Justice, won on Sunday at Scottsville impressively by almost a two length margin in very soft going. Learn A Little, Melanchete and Sacred Rose placed respectively behind her.
The six year old mare has now won twice, placing 16 times in total in her career. She is partly owned by Bush Hill Stud and Moodley's Racing Team CC (Nom: Mr G Moodley) and Messrs GB Puller and GR Puller.
Her dam Juste Melieu is out of Airworthy by Over The Air, and she has produced three winners with Green Sunshine (by Linney Head and the dam of two winners herself), Air Speed by Shoe Danzig and Air Command by National Emblem.
This dam-line includes Gr 3 East Coast Derby winner Robert The Bruce, Gr 2 Merchants Stakes winner Delta Force, Gr 3 winner Dunbarton and under the third dam, a few prolific overseas sires in Gr 1 winner Kaapstad(NZ) and multiple Gr 1 winner and champion sire Octagonal(NZ), as well as Palm Beach(GB) amongst the many Bold Black Types to be found in this pedigree.
