A Chilly Western Winter

A Chilly Western Winter

We may be nearing the peak of our Summer season here in KwaZulu-Natal, but Friday night's racing at Greyville sent chills down a few spines as we once again witnessed the class of a South African stallion great of times past, Western Winter.

Young jockey Dansile Wana thrilled the Kenilworth faithful Saturday when he piloted the Backworth-bred Windrush filly, Thrill Factor, to an exhilirating victory over 1000m for trainer Riaan Van Reenen and owners Gorgulho and Van Huyssteen.

Thrill Factor is a 2012 Emperors Palace National Yearling Sales graduate out of our US-bred mare Auburn Annio who is a daughter of Southern Spring who Champion 2-Year-Old, Champion 3-Year-Old and Champion Older Mare in Argentina.
