THREE-year-old Kavanagh scored an eye-catching win in a Conditions Plate over 1400m at Turffontein on Wednesday, 9 February. He came from off the pace but never looked in any danger of letting his supporters down when Randall Simons gave him some rein 400m from the line.
Kavanagh raced through smoothly along the rail and disposed easily of Galileo’s Galaxy, a formidable rival on any day of the week.
Kavanagh (Simons): Easy and impressive.
“That was very impressive,” commented Mike de Kock. “We put the blinkers on and he ran on strongly, concentrated well. We’ll go for the Gauteng Guineas next, perhaps the Horse Chestnut 1600 after that.”
Kavanagh, by Tiger Ridge from Quaestio (Seeking The Gold), was bred at his owner Mary Slack’s Wilgerbosdrift Stud.
