The Paddock pair

MIKE de Kock has a formidable pair of fillies in Saturday’s Gr1 Cartier Paddock Stakes at Kenilworth.

Below is Nother Russia with owner Jessica Slack flanked by grooms Nkosi (left) and Bruce (right). At the bottom, looking happy in her stable is Orchid Island.

Mathew de Kock reported from Cape Town:  “Both fillies have been here for five weeks and they’ve settled down, working very well and ready for the race.”
