Flying The Flag filly Im The Buzz, bred by Cathy and Jonathan Martin of Hadlow Stud, took the feature of the day at Hollywoodbets Scottsville for owner and trainer Tienie Prinsloo.
The Ingobamakhosi Carbineers Plate has been a race etched in the history of the Pietermaritzburg racecourse since the late 1800’s.
The chestnut filly accelerated to a six length finish over 1200m and broke her maiden in the process. Out of a Bezrin mare, she has only been out of the money in one start of her five.
She sold for just R7 000 on the April Online Auction held by Bloodstock South Africa in 2022 and as the saying goes, horses do not know their prices!
She is out of a half sister to Formation, an 11-time winner who won and placed in multiple features. This is the famed family of Kochka, Dash For Gretna and Jay Peg.
From just 17 runners, the Martins who are based in Mooi River, have had 7 wins for the season and a winners to runners percentage of 35%, with Average Earnings Per Runner of R41,579.
