Nice run by Bhakka today, at Hollywoodbets Scottsville. That was his first run out of the maidens, over a trip short of his best. Clearly an improving type, he will go very close to winning against the right company next time, when he runs over a bit more ground.

After a minor setback a few weeks ago, it was great to see Bhakka back to himself again. He won the opener on the program at Hollywoodbets Greyville this afternoon, another winner for Wylie Hall. Well done to the team.

That was a lovely debut over the 1400m by Bhakka this evening, at Hollywoodbets Greyville. He is bred for much further and despite the tough trip, he boxed on well for 3rd – beaten by just 1,80 lengths. Watch out for him over a bit more ground in the near future. See the replay below.

Seen here having a grass gallop this morning, Bhakka is finally getting going and this will bring him on nicely. He is closest to the camera.

By the promising freshman sire, Wylie Hall. He will take a bit of time and he is still learning a lot. He is another individual that expect to run an early 3yr old, but he has a very nice action.

Bhakka has completed the pre-training phase of his career and he joined up with Alyson Wright at Summerveld, on 27th November 2018. He has already settled in well and has completed his first Summerveld workout, this morning (28 November 2018) – see clip below. We are very happy with the way he has grown and matured over the past 2 months.

Bhakka will join up with a number of our other two-year olds at Jane Thomas’ Far End Farms, where he will be broken in before arriving at Alyson Wright’s yard at Summerveld.
