UPDATES – La Luvia
May 14th, 2022
Raced over 2000m at Hollywoodbets Greyville in the Listed KRA East Coast Cup. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: Not a bad run in this company only getting beaten 3.75 lengths. She should win at her rating in a weaker company, so I think we should keep here until the end of the season.
April 23rd, 2022
Raced over 2400m at Turffontein. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: Much improved run over the distance for the first time. On that run, she looks like she should win a race soon.
April 9th, 2022
Raced over 1800m at Turffontein on the Inside course. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: Very disappointing run.
March 19th, 2022
Raced over 1800m at Turffontein in the Listed Jacaranda Handicap. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: She pulled too hard in the race and went way too fast. She needs to have the blinkers removed and move to a shorter distance.
February 8th, 2022
Raced over 1600m at Turffontein. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: She stopped very badly and it was a poor run.
January 18th, 2022
Raced over 1800m on the Vaal Classic course. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: Keagan de Melo said she needs blinkers as she does not help you up the straight. She waits for horses to go past her and then she wants to try. She finished 3.75 lengths behind not giving her best.

Comment from trainer Sean Tarry:
La Luvia ran on Tuesday the 28th of December (1800m Progress Plate). Unfortunately, although it was a reasonable third, I feel that an opportunity was lost as we did not allow her to gallop with that light weight even though she went to the front as planned. It was a fair run, and she will run again soon.
December 28th, 2021
Raced over 1800m at Turffontein. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: She ran a good race but Sean Tarry felt that the apprentice should have not waited for the field to get to him and then make his run. He should have used his 4kg allowance and get away from the field and let them come and catch him.
November 13th, 2021
Raced over 1600m at Turffontein on the Standside course. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: Good run. She stayed on at the finish and it looks like she wants more ground.
October 30th, 2021
Raced in the Grade 3 Yellowwood Handicap over 1800m at Turffontein. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: She produced a good effort. Sean Tarry was pleased with the way that she stayed on for third for the first time over the distance. It looks like she will go further on that run which is a positive.
