CTC 2018 - DENLEDGE 12 on top!

Posted 11 June 2018 at 11:52

2018 CHARITY TURF CHALLENGE sponsored by TRACK & BALL


Undercover Agent joined Surcharge at the top of the leader board after winning the second of the bonus points on offer, the Gr.1 Rising Sun Gold Challenge at Greyville on Saturday and took home 25 points for his legion of fans. Snowdance and Sail South finished well for second and third respectively. In the Gr.2 Tibouchina Stakes, The Secret Is Out, held on gamely to repel the late challenge of Star Express with Final Judgement returning to form in third. Perhaps the most telling performance, however, was that of the reigning VDJ favourite, African Night Sky, whose turn of foot in the Gr.3 Cup Trial was electric and showed his well being in no uncertain terms. Course specialist, Crowd Pleaser, ran into second place ahead of Platinum Prince.

And, on Sunday at Turffontein, the last of the officially recognized July Trials was held with Yakeen holding off the well fancied Tilbury Fort in the Gr.3 Jubilee Handicap. As the winner and third placed horse (Arctica) were not part of the competition list, it was Tilbury Fort who added another five points to his earlier point received when winning earlier in the competition. Now the countdown to the announcement of the final VDJ field begins!

Congratulations to the winners, TabGold will be in touch in due course.

 

Brett Crawford has bypassed the Gr.2 Post Merchants with his Tsogo Sun winner, Bold Respect, leaving the door open for his stable companions, Sunset Eyes and Black Cat Back who drew well in the 1200m dash. A fascinating entry is that of Legislate’s, his first run since making a comeback from stud duties. Be sure to come racing!

 

Until next week, good racing and best of luck with your entries!
