Var (USA) - Erythrina (SAF) by Fort Wood (USA)

Having a satellite yard on the Highveld has its benefits for trainer Gavin van Zyl and sending out Money Tree (SAF) (Var (USA) - Erythrina (SAF)) for a spin under jockey Wesley Marwing on the Vaal sand track Tuesday afternoon turned out to be a wise call for Team G Racing.

Coming off a disappointing run on the grass, Money Tree showed how a change of track surface can turn the form around as she produced an explosive finish to win by 2.25 lengths from early pace setter Pink Prospect (SAF) (Silvano (GER)) and Jolly Along (SAF) (Silvano (GER)).
