GOLD FLIGHT (SAF)
Right Approach (GB) - Faerie Gold (Zim) by Eton Lad (GB)

Gold Flight was allowed to drift out beyond 2/1 last night at Greyville and although he may have given his owners and supporters some anxious moments, he got the job done quite easily in the end paying a generous R3.30 a win and R1.90 a place. He’s going to be at his best over more ground and still has plenty more improvement to come. Congratulations to owners Messrs Sarkis, Budlender and Molibeli on the win.” Trainer Gavin van Zyl

Gold Flight is a graduate from the Backworth draft of the 2010 KZN Yearling Sale and this win takes the bay colt’s career record to 1 win and 2 places from 3 starts.
