King’s Chapel had a double yesterday at Flamingo Park, including a win with juvenile colt Bishop Of Bombay in the Non Black Type Flamingo Nursery over 1400m.
It was the second career win for each of his sons who won yesterday – the first being Bush Hill-bred Kali’s King for new owner Mrs S Ganase, who purchased him at the Super Sale from the stable of Duncan Howells and has more than repaid his purchase price. He had placed twice previously for Duncan, including a close second.
Bishop Of Bombay, bred by Karenza Fourie and owned by Mr CJ Aucamp, has now won twice and placed from only four starts for trainer Mr MN Prinsloo, over 1000 – 1400m. Out of Roman World by Caesour, Bishop Of Bombay beat Top Salute by a head, carrying 2.5kgs more than the winner.
His best performed South African produced horse – Malak El Moolook, an unlucky two-time winner who is Gr3 placed and placed second on four occasions to leading horses, has since won and placed in both of his starts since being relocated to Mauritius.
On his island debut, Malak El Moolook finished third to Mauritian star and another KZN-bred, Cherish The Charm.
