Backworth had yet another good racing week with Scandal, Attenborough and Sanctuary flying our flag high.
Backworth-bred Humidor made it 4 wins from just 6 starts when powering home in the Middle Stakes over 1200m at Scottsville Wednesday for trainer Tony Rivalland with maestro Anton Marcus up.
The improvement capacity and scope of 2-year-olds’s was demonstrated by the Pippa Mickleburgh/Backworth-bred smart looking Attenborough, who was a facile winner of the R125,000 Listed Somerset 1200 at Kenilworth.

We welcomed the news this week of the arrival of our sixth foal of the season, a lovely colt born at Avontuur Stud in the Western Cape.
By the sire of Variety Club, 2012 Equus Horse of The Year, out of In Camera by Caesour, we’re wondering just how ‘var’st this strapping colt is going to go.
In Camera recorded 4 wins and 2 places over 1200m at 3 to 4. Her dam, Dance Celebre, is an own sister to Silver Stream and a half sister to Dance Along and Consensual. Consensual is the dam of Give Me Five who recorded four wins over 1160m to 1200m including the Gr1 Allan Robertson Fillies Championship, the Gr2 Camellia Stakes and the Gr3 Sycamore Sprint.
