Raced over 2000m on the Vaal Classic course. Finished 3rd out of 8 runners.
Anthony Delpech post-race comment: The pace of the race was too slow. The jockey should have made use of him and gone to the front. He was out sprinted the last 300m. I feel he should have won and he will enjoy a step up in distance.

296 – VENGEANCE FOREVER wins the first race over 1600m at the Vaal this afternoon. It was a slow run race, but he was given a confident ride by work rider Joe Gwingwizha. The son of Futura was brought to the course in perfect condition by trainer Sean Tarry. Well done to Brand Ambassador and Syndicate manager Anthony Delpech who named him after the greatest horse he ever rode, the Hong Kong thoroughbred, Vengeance Of Rain.

Raced over 1400m at Turffontein. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: Good run. I felt that the jockey could have moved earlier up the straight and not wait for the opposition to join him before making his move. I feel he is a horse that keeps finding and cannot quicken up right away. He will be better over more ground.
March 5th, 2022
Raced over 1160m at Turffontein. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: The distance is too short. Richard Fourie said he will win over a mile next time.

Comment from trainer Sean Tarry:
Vengeance Forever has been on the treadmill since he arrived. He started at the track this week. He is moving well, and it shouldn’t take us too long to find a race for him considering that he last ran on the 16th of November.
November 29th, 2021
Vengeance Forever will be leaving Eric Sands on Wednesday 1 December and moving to trainer Sean Tarry.

Raced over 1600m at Kenilworth. Eric Sands post-race comment: He could not overcome the draw and had a rough passage in the race, but I was still disappointed with the effort. He had blood in his nostrils after the race and I will run a few tests.
October 16th, 2021
He had to overcome a wide draw of ten over 1600m at Durbanville. He raced from a handy position, but did not go on with the effort. He is still a big baby and has plenty of scope. The draw is crucial and hopefully he can crack a good draw in his next start.
September 4th, 2021
He made his debut over 1400m at Kenilworth this afternoon. He raced from a handy position under Francois Herdoldt and stayed on nicely to finish third. The son of Futura will come on from the run and he should make good improvement next time out.
Eric Sands Race Report: Lovely run. He is a much better horse since he’s been gelded. He finished third and was beaten two lengths. He pulled up with a very slight near fore nod but he has an old over reach there, and ate okay.
February 25th, 2021
Recently finished with his spelling career, he has now joined up with the Eric Sands stable where he has settled in well and will now begin with a more intense training schedule to help him strengthen up.
November 25th, 2020
Recently purchased at the 2020 BSA National 2-Year Old Sale, he has joined up with Sally Bruss in the Western Cape where he will be placed for the remainder of his spelling career before he goes into full training early next year. Seen below during the sale.
