Butchie Boy Takes Zim Gr3 Guineas

1-2 for Bush Hill in the Gr3 Zimbabwean Guineas, as Butchie Boy wins and a Curved Ball runs second. Image: Andrew Philip

Bush Hill born and raised Butchie Boy, bred by Richard Fitzgerald, collected his second win in a row when grabbing the Gr3 Zimbabwean Guineas on Sunday for trainer Bridget Stidolph. It was a 1-2 for Bush Hill in the race, with Knuckleball by our resident sire Curved Ball placing second.

The three year old Crusade gelding, Butchie Boy, is owned by the Sunmark Racing Syndicate and followed through to fight courageously to the finish after winning by 2 lengths in his previous start.

Butchie Boy is the first produce of his dam Reed Dance by Kahal. Butchie Boy sold for R90 000 at the 2016 National 2YO Sale, and his year younger half-brother has placed from both starts.

His fourth dam is Arcsa Champion Filly of 1992, Tempest Queen.

Congratulations to his breeder Richard Fitzgerald on a great achievement. Butchie Boy has won twice and placed from all four of his starts.
