Step It Up won yesterday for the farm and our partners; Messrs JJ Snyman, HJ Brown (Jnr), Mr JM Coppez and Mrs NJ Coppezover, over 1000m at Greyville, under jockey Ian Sturgeon for trainers Herman Brown Jnr and Frank Robinson.

Step It Up is a half sister to our top performing ‘Raise The Bar’ who is racing for trainer Paul Matchett; 5 wins and 8 places from 19 starts.

This win further proves our mare ‘Moving On Up’ - as Step It Up is now the 2nd winner of 2 racing foals!

We have a very nice half brother to Step It Up by Muhtafal, called ‘Lucky Break’, which will be in the Backworth draft for sale at the National Yearling Sales from 27 - 29 April 2012 at the TBA Sales Complex in Germiston, Gauteng.
