Solskjaer (IRE) - Willow Park (SAF)

Our 3-year-old Solskjaer filly, Stamford Bridge, opened up the weekend’s racing with a ‘bang’ when she broke her maiden winning the opening race at Turffontein Friday, in an impressive fashion.

Trained by Mike Azzie, with Robbie Fradd up, this improver now takes her career record to a third, 2 seconds and a win from just 4 starts.

Stamford Bridge was bred by Koos and Lorraine de Klerk at Yellow Star Stud.

GOODBYE TO JUNE BUG

JUNE BUG
Cataloochee - September Bells by Western Winter (USA)

We are sad to annouce that we had to put down June Bug who was in training with Mike Azzie.

The three-year-old Cataloochee filly, out of September Bells by Western Winter, was showing such promise after 6 months off. She was about to have her 2nd run back when she broke her sesamoid in training. This tough decision was made for humane reasons.

June Bug’s career record reflects 2 wins and 3 places from 8 starts.
