Backworth had yet another good racing week with Scandal, Attenborough and Sanctuary flying our flag high.
Backworth-bred Scandal scored again for trainer Corne Spies on Monday at Fairview in a MR80 Open Handicap. Fellow Backworth-bred Sanctuary scooted home to take third in a FM 71 Handicap for trainer Alan Greeff.
Backworth-breds Aquinata and Scandal represented the farm with distinction Friday at Fairview. Aquinata flew home in the ninth for Dorrie Sham, Adriaan and Rika van Vuuren and Scandal scored a quarter length second in the Listed East Cape Breeders Stakes for Corne Spies. Congratulations to the connections.
The second KZN Breeders Series Log for two-year-olds published this week has seen the impressive Backworth Stud-bred debut winner, Scandal, moving to the head of affairs.
As the Johannesburg dusk settled Tuesday evening at Turffontein Racecourse, all focus was on the rippling racing machines strutting their stuff in the parade ring; in the air hovered a buzz of excited chatter, papers shuffling and uncertain whispers.
