Bush Hill’s beautifully bred sire Flying The Flag is in top form, and saw a recent courageous win at Hollywoodbets Scottsville with Hey Bill, a tall handsome gelding bred by Bruce Le Roux and trained by Michael Roberts.
It is the second win for the gelding under a superb ride from star female apprentice Rachel Venniker, and relished the extra ground on offer winning at 1950m.
Roha was another, having earned her third recent win in the care of trainer Paul Peter for Joshua Peter, the filly bred by Wilgerbosdrift & Mauritzfontein is out of a Silvano mare. Flying The Flag has plenty of speed in his female line and this is evident in Roha, winning over distances of 1400-1450m and proving the versatility of Flying The Flag.
Another consistent earner, a big dark bay gelding bred by the Late Syd Rosseau is Victory Twist and he has been giving his connections plenty of joy – with two wins and placing five times, three of them in the second box.
Flying The Flag, by Galileo and a full brother to star race fillies Rhododendron and Magical, has had 17 wins for the season and 30% winners to runners.
