She has matured nicely over the past 8 months and should just about be ready for a grass gallop. That will give us a better indication as to how ready she is for a debut run. At this stage we are very happy with her progress.

with the fall of the hammer, she is now under the ownership of the Hollywood Syndicate. A fill that is sure to take a bit of time, she will be sent back to Lammerskraal before she is transported up to KZN’s Summerveld. We estimate an entry into full training around March 2020.
