Warwick Render concludes with: “King Neptune was the start of a great weekend for us. To back his win [Listed Michaelmas Handicap] up at the first meeting back at Greyville, Clairwood saw us with a second from Malkia, a third from AP Strike, third from Honour Malchizadeck and a win from The Queen who we bred and raised. On Saturday we had a 2nd from Bold Flash (half-sister to The Queen) and a third from Kimura Cat, both at Turffontein. Added to this is Kahal’s big win in Mauritius, with Tales of Bravery, and the facile win of Toreador’s son Darkness at Clairwood. All in all a pretty good weekend at the office!”
