Backworth Stud’s Chocolicious (SAF) (Photo : Gold Circle) Following on from her very respectable fourth behind Ebony Flyer in the South African Fillies Sprint (Grade 1) two weeks ago, Chocolicious (Kahal – Candy Box by Exclusive Patriot) continued to show good form Friday evening with a great run in the Serendipity Tours Conditions Plate (F & M) over 1000m at Greyville.

Taking on the might of the KwaZulu-Natal Stakes (Listed) one-two winning combination in Torra Bay(AUS) and Sweet Aria(IRE), the Backworth-bred filly dispayed a true fighting spirit to turn the tables on her fellow speedsters under a confident ride by jockey Keagan Latham.

This win takes Chocolicious’ South African career record to 5 wins and 8 places from 15 starts for earnings of R563,155. Chocolicious includes the Allan Robertson Championship Grade 1 in amongst her victories. Chocolicious is a half-sister to Stakes Placed Top Of The Chocs, by Miesque’s Approval.

Congratulations to trainers Herman Brown Jnr and Frank Robinson and owners Messrs P Ebbs, MG Frost, MA Robinson & Ms L Kapustina, Messrs HJ Brown (Jnr) & NC Smith.
