KZN BREEDERS RACE DAY
29 June 2014

The much anticipated KZN Breeders Race Day is set to be staged on 29 June 2014 at Clairwood racecourse. The second log for ‘three-year-olds and up’ sees sire Miesque’s Approval with the first two on the log. Backworth Stud-bred Island Fiesta (Miesque’s Approval - Bermuda Junction) leads with 24 points, ahead of Auction King (Miesque’s Approval - Eli’s Thread) and Flyfirstclass (Kahal - Radiant Lass).

Bred by Keith Russon and Ian Todd of Backworth Stud, Island Fiesta is trained by Wendy Whitehead and owned by a syndicate including Messrs LR Whiteford, GS Calway, GPW Davis, T de Charmoy, JI Shaw, Sanjeev Ramsewak, Sanjeeth Ramsewak and Miss W Whitehead.

Island Fiesta, aptly named out of Backworth’s Austalian mare Burmuda Junction, by Is It True (USA), has only been out of the money twice from 16 starts - winning four of them, and placing 10 times. Burmuda Junction has produced seven winners from eight runners, including recent Backworth-bred winner by Atso, Bermuda Breeze.
