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.

CAVIAR
Var (USA) - Lewinsky’s Lover by Jallad (USA)

The classy Backworth-bred Caviar (Var / Lewinsky’s Lover) won convincingly under MJ Odendaal at Clairwood Sunday, carrying top weight over a speedy 1200m.

This win takes the smart filly’s career record to 4 wins, 4 seconds and 2 thirds from 12 starts; and kicks off what promises to be a ‘Caviar & Champagne’ year ahead for Backworth-breds.

Congratulations to Summerveld-based trainer Colin Scott and owners Rob Scott and the Two Oceans Racing Syndicate.

Caviar is from the family of Soho Secret; ARCSA Champion Broodmare in 1995, Kings Gambit; Equus Champion Stayer in 2008, London News; ARCSA Champion Three-Year-Old Colt and Horse of The Year in 1995 and Champion Older Male and Horse Of The Year in 1996, and Promisefrommyheart; Equus Champion Three-Year-Old Classic Female in 2004.

The four-year-old bay filly is a graduate from the Backworth draft of the 2011 Emperors Palace National Yearling Sale… and we have a lovely Lewinsk’y Lover yearling filly by Muhtafal, named Scandal, which we will be selling this year!
