FLORISTRY
Muhtafal (USA) - Erythrina (SAF) by Fort Wood (USA)

Floristry (Muhtafal - Erythrina) broke her maiden for us at Fairview Friday winning very nicely over 1200m for trainers Duncan McKenzie and Des McLachlan with Barend Vlooh up.

After a six month break, Floristry was sent to PE where she has scored a third, a second and now a first from her last five starts!

This chestnut filly is from the family of Royal Heroine (GB), Champion Turf Filly in the USA in 1984, and Carmine Lake (IRE), Top Rated 3-Year-Old Sprinter in France in 1997.

Pathfork (USA) - Plush (SAF)

Spring is almost upon us and with the changing of the seasons comes the much anticipated arrival of our first foals.

Kicking off the foaling season was our broodmare Plush (Fort Wood - Velvet Green), a full sister to Wonder Lawn, with her sprightly filly by Pathfork (Distorted Humor - Vision Of Clarity).

Here they are enjoying the freedom of a first frollick in the paddock.

MONEY TREE IN THE MONEY FOR TEAM G RACING

MONEY TREE (SAF)
Var (USA) - Erythrina (SAF) by Fort Wood (USA)

Having a satellite yard on the Highveld has its benefits for trainer Gavin van Zyl and sending out Money Tree (SAF) (Var (USA) - Erythrina (SAF)) for a spin under jockey Wesley Marwing on the Vaal sand track Tuesday afternoon turned out to be a wise call for Team G Racing.

Coming off a disappointing run on the grass, Money Tree showed how a change of track surface can turn the form around as she produced an explosive finish to win by 2.25 lengths from early pace setter Pink Prospect (SAF) (Silvano (GER)) and Jolly Along (SAF) (Silvano (GER)).

PLUSH
Fort Wood (USA) - Velvet Green (BRZ) by Roy

Backworth Stud was excited to be approached by Mary Slack to buy Plush, full sister to Wonder Lawn, with an impressive international pedigree.

The Stud received an added bonus when Neil Bruss got her to the Winner’s Enclosure for the first time in her career, and for her first run in Backworth Stud’s colours!
