Look To The Sky is flying after his debut win in January. See below, for a clip of his latest work-out this morning.
11th February, 2019
Look To The Sky having some post work-out treatment done this morning – standing nice and relaxed in a modified ice container. He went slightly shin sore after his pre-race gallop in the middle of January and this is just precautionary treatment after some high intensity exercise.

Syx Shooter, a gelding by Great Britain, put up a nice gallop earlier this week. We don’t think it was a gallop worthy of finding the winners box first time out, but it will bring him on a lot and he should run a nice race on debut in a few weeks. See the clip below – he is drawn closest to the camera, with the white cap and black body.

Mighty Smart, a day after his first outing on the grass. He won’t be the biggest colt, but he is starting to look like a “little bull” of a horse.

This daughter of Soft Falling Rain, BLESSED RAIN, is doing very nicely at home and we couldn’t be more pleased with her progress. She will be put through the pens in two weeks time and we’ll look to give her a debut outing towards the end of February.
MIGHTY SMART, our grey Archipenko colt (nearest to the camera), was put through his paces yesterday by trainer Paul Lafferty. Watch here:

A solid Barrier Trial by our son of Captain of All, CHIEF OFFICER, today at Scottsville Racecourse. He was probably outpaced by the genuine sprinters in the field, but moved up nicely late on to be touched off by a nostril into 2nd place. Check out the replay here:

Fantastic win by the Hollywood Syndicate debutante, LOOK TO THE SKY. He won today’s opener at the Vaal Classic track, at a big price of 40/1 SP. Congrats to trainer Clinton Binda, jockey Kabelo Matsunyane and breeders Highlands Stud. A smart son of Pathfork, he was purchased at the 2018 BSA KZN Yearling Sale.

Uncle Charlie was bravely ridden by Anton Marcus to win the opener at Scottsville on Wednesday, 16th January 2019. Watch his replay below.
Spanish Fort also impressed in the first Barrier Trial of the day, Race 10. Not bad for a colt that went into full training less than 6 weeks ago. See his replay below.
