Var (USA) - Lady Electric (AUS) by Hennessy (USA)

Speedy three-year-old chestnut filly, Variometer, took a perfectly timed three-quarter length victory, carrying top weight, in the Bauhinia Handicap (Listed) over 1000m on Turffontein’s old course last night. ‘Precision’ jockey, Piere Strydom, presented the Louis Goosen-trained daughter of Var 200m out before she charged away in the final 100m from Jolly Poppins, Three Nations, Extra Zero and Princess Rue.

Variometer is a graduate from the Backworth draft of the 2010 KZN Yearling Sale and this win takes her career record to 4 wins and 3 place from 10 starts.
