Mogok (USA) - Absolut Star (SAF) by Salaadim (USA) 

LUXARDO (Mogok - Absolut Star) stormed to a convincing 5 length win over 1000m at Scottsville Saturday, under a confident ride from jockey Keagan de Melo for trainers Herman Brown and Frank Robinson.

The grey 3-year-old colt, who is a half-brother to the well performed Aquavit, had 5 previous starts comprising 3 fourths and 2 seconds. Congratulation to owners Braam Van Huyssteen and Herman Brown Jnr.

Aquavit is a four-time winner both in South Africa and Mauritius, placing six times.

This dam-line is bursting with Bold-Black Type, including Gr2 SA Oaks winner Seven Stars, Hot Seven, The Seventh Star, Alpha Centauri, ARCSA Champion Two-Year-Old Colt Gold Flier, Gr1 Gold Challenge winner Successful Bidder and Gr1 Allan Robertson Fillies Championship winner Trust Antonia, to name but a few from a most succesful family.

Luxardo is a graduate from the Backworth draft of the 2011 Suncoast Casino KZN Yearling Sale.

We also had a 2nd at Borrowdale with DIAMANTAIRE (Var / Jewel of Hanui), for trainer Alyson Wright, in the Gweru Tote Merit Rated 62 Handicap over 1100m, jockey Francois Herholdt up.
