UPDATES – Platinum Sky

October 7th, 2021
He showed some signs of needing his effort over 1600m on the Vaal Classic course this afternoon. He raced from a handy position, was still green in running and stayed on to finish fourth. The son of Silvano will come on from this outing and he should strip a much fitter horse next time. He has plenty of ability and looks to have a bright future ahead of him.

June 26th, 2021
He won a good race over 1400m at Turffontein Racecourse this afternoon. He made the expected natural improvement and won with a ton in hand. Thank you and well done to Lyle Hewitson, Sean Tarry and breeders Maine Chance Farms. This marks the Syndicate’s 50th winner for the season.

May 8th, 2021
He made his debut at Turffontein this afternoon. He was drawn on the wrong side of the course and raced green. The son of Silvano will come on from the run and should have plenty of improvement to come in his next start.

January 15th, 2021
An outstanding performance by this colts half-sister, Princess Calla, to finish third in the Cartier Paddock Stakes Gr1 recently. See the replay here.

October 14th, 2020
This son of Silvano oozes class and he is taking every step of his preparation in his stride. We cannot wait to see how he matures over the coming months.

August 14, 2020
He has arrived in the Western Cape to be spelled by Sally Bruss on her new establishment. Being by Silvano he will take a bit more time, but he is full of class.
