The salestopping Joey Ramsden trained Var colt Tar Heel endorsed the quality of the groundbreaking inaugural 2014 CTS Johannesburg Ready To Run Sale held at the Inanda Club in Sandton, when he charged home to win the R125 000 Listed Somerset 1200 run at Kenilworth on Saturday.
Champery is unbeaten in two starts
It is good to see two of the Cape’s well established ‘boutique’ yards holding the trump cards in a local feature for a change. Longtime Milnerton neighbours Eric Sands and Greg Ennion could be the names to follow in today’s R125 000 Listed Perfect Promise Sprint to be run over the Kenilworth 1200m straight.
Ramsden’s Macduff wins on debut
The racing media don’t create stars. We follow them. April was Sean Tarry’s month. May is fast turning into the Joey Ramsden show. The Milnerton conditioner could enjoy another fabulous feature weekend and looks to have a strong hand in the R125 000 Listed Somerset 1200 – a race that he has won for the past two years running.
