Karin and Warwick Renders Bush Hill Stud enjoyed two wins on the trot on two different courses over the weekend, with Tabatha Cat winning on Sunday and the smart Electric Gold coming home lonely on Tuesday.
Tabatha Cat, who gave her part owner Mr Sumeshen Moodley his first win as an owner in partnership with Monty Racing, won well under Muzi Yeni – the daughter of The United States out of Kitti Cat has made steady progress, to win in her fifth outing after placing in her three previous starts. The filly sold for R80 000 off the August 2YO Sale and the dam, a Listed winner, hails from the family of sires Bold Fact, Ideal World, Dansili, Leroidesanimaux – the sire of Animal Kingdom.
Recently sold for R700 000 to Suzette and Basie Viljoen, Electric Gold – a talented former charge from the stable of Paul Peter and now racing for Sean Tarry, won at Turffontein, beating consistent #kznbred Flashy Apache by 3,5 lengths – a terrific achievement for Winnie Fourie’s Grace Stables who started both horses in pretraining. The field included Gr2 winner Bold Fortune and Electric Gold looked back to his previous form, where he previously had won three in a row as a two year old, defeating older hard knockers in an easy fashion.
There is excitement surrounding the Bush Hill bred son of Flying The Flag, and decisions will be made whether he heads to the Cape or stays in Gauteng to contest the Triple Crown.
Electric Gold is a big handsome bay who boasts strong features to his world champion paternal grandsire, out of a Goalkeeper mare.
He is certainly a colt to follow for the season!
