He clearly didn’t take to the Flamingo Park sand track as well as we had hoped, last time out. Back at home, he is having a few weeks off before we step up his work again. Seen below, after enjoying an afternoon walk.

This son of What A Winter makes his way to diamond country this Saturday, where he will line up in the 4th Race at Flamingo Park (Kimberley). He goes for the elusive hat-trick of wins and if seeing out the 1300m trip, he must be considered a huge runner. Final Field below:

Winter Twilight put up a game effort on the Greyville polytrack last night, eventually crossing the line in 2nd. Unfortunately, he was relegated to 4th as a result of causing interference in the latter stages but he clearly took to the poly well. We will look to bring him down to Durban, for another attempt soon.
