UPDATES – Zig Zag

September 7th, 2021
He showed good signs of a form return, finishing third over 1600m on the polytrack at Fairview Racecourse. He raced from a handy position and stayed on nicely at the business end. He should have another win left in the tank.

June 7th, 2021
He produced another good effort when finishing second over 1600m on the polytrack today. He was slow into stride, but finished his race off nicely. The son of Twice Over is in a good space and there should be another win or two in him.

May 25th, 2021
He ran on powerfully to win over 1600m on the Polytrack at Fairview Racecourse today. The son of Twice Over has now won two races. He was brought to the races in perfect condition by trainer Cliffie Miller and given a peach of a ride by Calvin Habib. Well done to the breeders Maine Chance Farms.

May 11th, 2021
He ran a good race when finishing third in his second start in the Eastern Cape. He cost himself at the start once again but when jumping on terms, he should fight out the finish.

April 9th, 2021
He was having his first run in the Eastern Cape. It was over a distance short of his best and will come on with the run under his belt.

February 1st, 2021
As we thought, he was in need of this run after that absence from racing but the run today should bring him on in his fitness and he will strip a much fitter horse next time. See the replay here.

January 3rd, 2021
He has joined up with the Cliffie Miller stable and should have another run for the Hollywood Syndicate soon.

April 4th, 2020
He hasn’t shown much so far, but the penny hasn’t dropped for this son of Twice Over and when it does he will just about win within two starts. The break will freshen him up nicely and he will need to show something soon after his return.

January 2nd, 2020
After a solid debut run, where she finished just 5-lengths off the winner, she now lines up over the extra furlong today and further improvement can be expected. Pictured below, after an afternoon walk at stables. See the final field below.
