August 12th, 2022
Raced over 1400m at Hollywoodbets Greyville on the turf. Finished 4th out of 8 runners.
Anthony Delpech post-race comment: She over raced in the early part of the race. She needs to learn to settle if she’s going to win any more races. The race meeting also got her very worked up as it was very noisy.

Raced over 1400m at Hollywoodbets Greyville on the polytrack. Finished 11th out of 12 runners.

Anthony Delpech post-race comment: We tried giving her a chance in the race. Jockey JP V’d Merwe said she would be better off letting her stride to the front as she tries to pull too hard.

Raced over 1400m at Hollywoodbets Greyville on the polytrack. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: She overraced throughout the race and had to stop. I feel we need to wait for a good draw with her.

283 – NKALANZINZI notches up the 60th winner for the Syndicate this season. She made an early move on the turn, quickened up well and was never in doubt over 1400m on the polytrack at Hollywoodbets Greyville. She was ridden to victory by Anton Marcus and is trained by Darryl Moore. Well done to the breeders Varsfontein Stud.

Anthony Delpech post-race comment: Very easy win in a poor field. Anton Marcus feels that she has come back better after a small break.

Raced over 1400m at Hollywoodbets Greyville on the polytrack. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: Very unlucky not to have won maybe from the draw. Anton had to make a bit too much use of her and that told at the finish.

Raced over 1400m at Hollywoodbets Greyville on the turf. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: She was very unlucky. She was her worst enemy by over racing and running around up the straight which cost her the race.

Raced over 1400m at Hollywoodbets Greyville on the turf. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: She ran a good race, finishing third. She looks like she is starting to learn how to race. Muzi Yeni said that she was pulling a bit hard in the early stages and that is what cost her the race.

She made her debut over 1200m at Hollywoodbets Greyville on the turf track this afternoon. She went to the front and showed signs of needing the effort. She would have gained from the experience and should have improvement to come. See the replay here.
