Raced over 1160m at Turffontein. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: Travelled well, but never kicked on at the 400m. I spoke to Barend Botes after the race and we both thought he could be better off striding along in front.

238 – MOYA WA LALIGA – He won the opening race at the Vaal Classic course this afternoon over 1200m shedding his maiden tag. He followed up his encouraging debut effort with a victory in impressive fashion by 1.50 lengths. He is trained by Barend Botes and was guided to victory by Ryan Munger. The son of Rafeef is named by our partners, LaLiga. Well done!

He made his debut over 1200m on the Vaal Classic course this afternoon. He had to overcome the widest draw of ten. He was settled in a mid-field position under Muzi Yeni and finished his race off strongly to finish a close second. He was very green, which may have cost him winning but he will come on from the experience and should be followed next time.
