Backworth had a good day’s racing at Scottsville Tuesday with Go Again (Muhtafal – Going Places by Esplendor) winning second time out for the Herman Brown/Frank Robinson yard; beating the hot favourite, Markus Jooste’s talented Trippi colt, Skywalk Luke, by a length.

The Backworth graduate of the 2011 Emperors Palace National Yearling Sale is a full brother to First Again, winner of the 2006 Ipi Tombe Challenge (Grade 2) and the highest merit rated filly of her generation (MR106). Congratulations to the Brown/Robinson yard and to owner Mr R. Bifov.

In the third race on the same card, Backworth-bred Sugar Rush (Miesque’s Approval – Sweet Sweet by Kenmare) ran second, also second time out, for trainer Tony Rivalland, beaten by the Dennis Drier-trained favourite, Sue For Peace. Sugar Rush is a half-sister to Meet At Malamala, a colt who placed in the Summer Cup Grade 1.

On Monday at Clairwood, Luxardo (Mogok – Absolut Star by Salaadim) ran fourth, first time out, over 1000m. A commendable run considering he was left at the start. Luxardo was a R200 000 yearling purchase at the 2011 KZN Yearling Sale, and descends from a dam-line that includes the likes of Alpha Centauri, ARCSA Champion Two-Year Old colt Gold Flier and Equus Champion Older Male Sprinter Successful Bidder. Luxardo is a half-brother to four-time winner (including a win in Mauritius) Aquavit.
