He left on the 4th to HW Life After Racing stables for a spell. He has had a problem with his one hoof which we have been consulting with Nicolle about. Seems she is on top of it

July 2nd, 2022
Raced over 1600m in the Listed Compendium Insurance Brokers Handicap at Hollywoodbets Greyville on the turf. Finished 7th out of 14 runners.
Anthony Delpech post-race comment: He never disgraced himself. He finished 3.05 lengths behind. He may not be up to this standard.

May 14th, 2022
Raced over 1900m at Hollywoodbets Greyville in the Grade 2 WSB 1900. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: He did not disgrace himself in this company. The distance was too far for him and Warren Kennedy said we should come back to 1600m.


May 1st, 2022
Raced over 1400m at Hollywoodbets Scottsville. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: He missed the start and ended up further back than what we wanted. Keagan said that he will be better over more ground and didn’t feel he could have won if he had been closer.

Raced over 1600m at Hollywoodbets Greyville in the Listed Kings Cup. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: Ran a gusty race. The pace of the race was too slow for him and I feel that could have made the difference from winning.

277 – SHAMPOMPO SHAMPIZI makes it a double for the Syndicate at Hollywoodbets Scottsville today. He took a steep rise in class, but showed guts to win the Non-Black Type WSB Club Prive Fever Tree Stakes. The son of Var was ridden to victory by Warren Kennedy and is trained by Hollywoodbets-sponsored Alyson Wright. Well done to the breeders Mr and Mrs C de Vos.

Anthony Delpech post-race comment: Good win stepping up in class.

February 1st, 2022
He looks good and worked really well , Alyson Wright is possibly running him next week over 1500m.

254 – SHAMPOMPO SHAMPIZI wins Race 7 at Hollywoodbets Greyville this afternoon. He travelled keenly in behind the leaders, but quickened up well and won a smart race. He is now a two-time winner and there is definitely more to come. He is trained by Hollywoodbets-sponsored Alyson Wright and ridden to victory by Warren Kennedy.

November 28th, 2021
Raced over 1400m at Hollywoodbets Greyville on the turf. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: He ran on strongly just to be denied by a head. I feel he is learning to relax better in the race and holding his form well. The slow run race is maybe what beat him as the leader got away from him.

November 7th, 2021
Raced over 1200m at Hollywoodbets Greyville on the turf. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: It was a great comeback run and he is definitely a better horse on the turf. It should not be too long before he wins again.

August 23rd, 2021
He raced in a Conditional Novice race over 1100m on the polytrack at Hollywoodbets Greyville this afternoon. He is much better than the effort suggests and should return to best form in the near future.

June 12th, 2021
He was far from disgraced when finishing fourth in the Non-Black Type Rising Sun Durban Dash. He did over race in the early stages, but stayed on nicely at the finish. Once learning to settle, he should be a decent type. See the replay here.

Shampompo Shampizi in his box before his race this weekend on Hollywoodbets Gold Challenge Raceday. He is well heading into the race and should give another good account of himself.

April 15th, 2021
He was having his first run after winning impressively on debut. It is never out the maidens, but he ran a creditable 4th. There is a lot more to come from the handsome son of Var. See the replay here.

March 14th, 2021
A smart victory on debut by this son of Var, after returning from a mishap which set him back by almost a year. Well done to trainer Alyson Wright, Lyle Hewitson for a top ride and breeders Mr & Mrs CF De Vos

May 17th, 2020
He continues to do well and he has turned into a smashing two year old gelding, one that we can’t wait to see debut when racing returns. Seen here, moving well in his workout over the weekend.

April 9th, 2020
This son of Var has taken every challenge in his stride. He seems to be one of the better 2-year olds we managed to purchase last year. Being out of the Victory Moon mare, Light The Moon, he should be quite progressive. Seen in the pink cap nearest the camera, at Summerveld this morning – 9 April 2020.

August 24th, 2019
He has shown a tremendous amount of ability in the short time he has spent on the farm. Everything he does, seems to be easy for him and his relaxed temperament is another important asset to his bow. The team at Leckhampton have have labelled him a horse to get excited about, so watch this space for further updates.

June 12th, 2019
Purchased in late April, he has settled in well at Leckhampton Valley Spelling and Pre Training ever since. Here he will be broken in before he starts with some light track work. A recent update from the team looking after him:

“Moon’s Up is a good looking colt who still has a significant amount of growing to do. His good attitude should prove helpful with his work going forward.”
