Kahal (GB) - Candy Box (SAF)
by Exclusive Patriot (USA)
Following on from her very respectable fourth behind Ebony Flyer in the South African Fillies Sprint (Grade 1) two weeks ago, Chocolicious (Kahal - Candy Box) continued to show good form Friday evening with a great run in the Serendipity Tours Conditions Plate (F & M) over 1000m at Greyville.
Taking on the might of the KwaZulu-Natal Stakes (Listed) one-two winning combination in Torra Bay (AUS) (Cape Cross (IRE) - Vodka Twist (AUS)) and Sweet Aria (IRE) (Celtic Swing (GB) - Carina Ari (IRE)), the Backworth-bred filly dispayed a true fighting spirit to turn the tables on her fellow speedsters under a confident ride by jockey Keagan Latham.
This win takes Chocolicious’ South African career record to 5 wins and 8 places from 15 starts for earnings of R563,155.
Congratulations to trainers Herman Brown Jnr and Frank Robinson and owners Messrs P Ebbs, MG Frost, MA Robinson & Ms L Kapustina, Messrs HJ Brown (Jnr) & NC Smith.
