SOUTH AFRICAN FILLIES SPRINT (GRADE 1)
Scottsville, Pietermaritzburg, KZN

The field for last Saturday’s R500,000 South African Fillies Sprint (Grade 1) included a classy bunch of very fast females.

Last season’s Equus 2 year-old Champion filly, Princess Victoria (SAF) (Victory Moon), had won the Poinsettia Stakes (Grade 3) last time out and lined up for the SA Fillies Sprint off a perfect prep. Mike de Kock’s Welwitschia (GB) (Oasis Dream) had pulverised the opposition at her last start in the Camelia Stakes (Grade 2) and Ebony Flyer (SAF) (Jet Master) came off a break after winning last time out in the Majorca Stakes (Grade 1). Let’s not forget the ultra consistant Backworth-bred Gr1 Allan Robertson Championship victress, Chocolicious (SAF) (Kahal - Candy Box). We could go on and on but simply put, it was a star-studded line-up of very good girls.

Chocolicious (SAF) didn’t disgrace and powered home for a classy fourth under jockey Keagan Latham for trainers Herman Brown Jnr and Frank Robinson; following Ebony Flyer (SAF), Welwitschia (GB) and She’s A Stunner (SAF).
