July 26th, 2022
Raced over 1200m at the Vaal. Finished 7th out of 16 runners.
Anthony Delpech post-race comment: He lost too much ground at the start. It’s impossible to make it up with the ground being so quick at present. He only finished 4.65 lengths behind. He would have gone close to winning if he jumped on terms.

June 7th, 2022
Raced over 1100m at the Vaal. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: He was slow away at the start. It’s not possible to make up the ground this time of the year when the track is running so fast. He did not run a bad race considering that he missed the start.
June 2nd, 2022
Raced over 1000m at Turffontein. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: Good effort, finishing second.
May 19th, 2022
Raced over 1000m at Turffontein. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: Not a bad run, but I feel he needs more ground and remove the blinkers.
May 8th, 2022
Raced over 1000m at Turffontein. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: Not a bad run and he will improve from that performance. I feel he may be better over 1200m.
March 10th, 2022
Raced over 1000m on the Vaal Classic course. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: He jumped well and travelled well. Clinton said he needed the run and will be a fitter horse next time.
November 13th, 2021
Raced over 1160m at Turffontein on the Standside course. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: He did not jump out the starting stalls and he will have to be re-schooled.
October 7th, 2021
He took his place in a 1200m contest on the Vaal Classic course. He missed the break and overraced in the early stages before lacking a finish in the latter stages. He is better than that outing suggests and he still has plenty of scope.
September 12th, 2021
He was having his first run out the Maidens over 1200m at Hollywoodbets Scottville. He did not get the best of starts, but stayed on strongly to finish second. He is still lightly raced and looks to have some ability. See the replay here.
August 22nd, 2021
He won a game race over 1160m at Turffontein this afternoon. He showed good speed and kept finding all the way to the line under a confident ride by Gavin Lerena. Well done to trainer Clinton Binda and to the breeders Ridgemont Highlands.
July 24th, 2021
He produced another good effort, finishing second over 1000m on the Turffontein Standside course. He is a progressive type and the blinkers have done the trick. It should not be long before he finds himself in the winner’s enclosure.
July 8th, 2021
He raced over 1000m at the Vaal this afternoon. He was returning from a 12-week break and was fitted with the blinkers. He showed good improvement to finish second behind Night King. The son of Var looks to be a progressive type and should be competitive in his next start.
April 17th, 2021
He made his debut this afternoon and was in need of the run. He will come on from the experience and should show improvement the next time he steps onto the track.
February 9th, 2021
This colt seems to be coming along nicely and should be due to have a grass gallop in the next few weeks. That will give us a good idea of where he is in his preparation for a debut thereafter. Pictured below after his workout this morning.
