UPDATE – Purple Magic

March 10th, 2021
He was retired by the Hollywood Syndicate on the 6th March 2021. He had seven starts for 1 placing.

January 13th, 2020
Recently moved to KZN, he has joined up with the Alyson Wright stable and has settled in well. He hasn’t shown too much thus far and we’ll be hoping the change of scenery does the trick for this son of Pathfork.

September 3rd, 2020
He steps out for his debut this Saturday 5th September. See more about what we expect below.

Predicted Betting: 4/1

This son of Pathfork is yet to show much promise in his work at home so this outing may just be the test he needs to bring him on. We’ll be hoping for a reasonable performance first up.

He has just arrived at back at Clinton Binda’s farm, where he will have time to mature over the next few months before he is broken in.
