Warwick and Karin Render of Bush Hill Stud pulled off a 1-2 in the first juvenile meeting of the season, which included the first runner for Summerhill sire Willow Magic.
The Mogok colt they bred, Harlington Express, won convincingly whilst their well bred filly by Willow Magic, Magicallee finished 2nd by a whisker – making it 1-2 for Bush Hill reds.
Harlington Express is out of Crest Of Pearls by National Emblem, trained by Yogas Govender – and taking home an additional bonus of R60 000 from Bloodstock South Africa with their incentive series for maiden juveniles, 90% of which the stake goes to the owner.
Magicallee, trained by Kom Naidoo, is a beautiful chestnut filly well related and a half-sister to several multiple winners and plenty of Black Type in the family, impressed again in her debut run after an eye catching Barrier Trial. Her siblings include the likes of Reign As Kings, recent winner Bint Al Malak and Malak Al Moolook, amongst them.
Well done to breeders Bush Hill Stud on a smashing feat.
