RAISE THE BAR (SAF)
Goldkeeper (USA) - Moving On Up (SAF) by Jallad (USA)

A hotly contested Listed Queen Of The Sand over 1600m on the Vaal sand track Tuesday produced an exciting finish with the Roy Magner-trained daughter of Darley stallion Medaglia D’Oro, Mina Salaam, winning by 3/4 lengths from a running-on Paul Matchett-trained Raise The Bar (Goldkeeper - Moving On Up).

Backworth-bred Raise The Bar’s vanquisher, Mina Salaam, has an impressive race record which includes wins in the first two legs of the Zimbabwean Triple Crown as a three-year-old. She is out of the champion South African mare, Circle of Life, and is a half sister to Grade 1 winners African Lion and Zebra Crossing.

Raise The Bar’s career record stands at 6 wins and 10 places from 22 starts.

Look out for Lot 106 LUCKY BREAK, Raise The Bar’s half brother by Muhtafal, at the 2012 Emperors Palace National Yearling Sale.
