Final Field Sansui Summer Cup
A full field of 20 are set to face the starter for the Gauteng SANSUI Summer Cup on 26 November as Turffontein Racecourse gears up to once again play host to this R2-million Grade One contest.
This year’s event promises to be bigger and better with the Sound Experience adding to the vibe on the day and will see award-winner Kwesta join the likes of Major League DJ’s, Nadia Nakia and Twins on Decks.
It is perhaps ironic that trainer Geoff Woodruff, seeking a fourth straight victory in this 2000m race, has four horses standing their ground with Deo Juvente, who caught the eye earlier this month in the Peermont Emperors Palace Charity Mile (Gr 2), and defending champion Master Sabina both carrying 56kg.
Anton Marcus has gone for the ride on Deo Juvente and Gavin Lerena reunites with Master Sabina.
The two other charges from the Woodruff stable are Master Switch, with Anthony Delpech up, and Master ’N Commander who has yet to have a jockey declared.
The Weiho Marwing charge, Mac De Lago, sits at the top of the handicap and will shoulder 60kg with Punta Arenas carded to carry 58kg with Durban-based trainer Dennis Drier opting to raid with this seasoned campaigner.
At the bottom of the weights, Bankable Teddy, Irish Pride, St Tropez and Mogok Master will all carry 52kgs.
There are three horses standing their ground from the yard of defending champion trainer Sean Tarry with all of Stonehenge, Liege and Samurai Blade lining up on the big day. S’manga Khumalo has taken the ride on Liege.
The barrier draw for the Gauteng SANSUI Summer Cup will take place on Wednesday, 16 November and will be broadcast on Tellytrack at 2.15pm.
