“WE ARE WORTH BACKING”
Backworth-breds have been knocking on the Graded and Listed race doors recently with a return to form for both Chocolicious and Variometer!
In November at Turffontein, Variometer (Var (USA) - Lady Electric (Aus) by Hennessy) ran a convincing 2nd to Waywest Goddess (Way West (AUS) - Gallic Goddess by Gallic League (IRE)) in the Gardenia Handicap (Listed) setting up a tremendous 1-2 for trainer Louis Goosen.
This past weekend saw Chocolicious (Kahal (GB) - Candy Box by Exclusive Patriot (USA)) missing out by half a length in the Magnolia Handicap (Grade 3) at Turffontein for trainer Herman Brown Jnr; conceding 6kgs to the winner Jackodore (Toreador (IRE) - I’m Alright Jack by Shoe Danzig (USA)).
Variometer takes her career record to 2 wins and 1 place from 6 starts while Chocolicious takes hers to 2 wins and 7 places from 9 starts.
