SILVER FLYER (photo), a winner at his second attempt in a 1400m Plate race against winners at Greyville on Tuesday evening, has been supplemented to the entries for the Grade 1 Premier’s Champion Stakes over 1600m at the same course on 30 July.
The R200 000 purchase by Silvano is still inexperienced and he shifted out and changed legs over the last 300m, but Anthony Delpech kept him focused and his turn of foot was impressive. When he puts it all together he’ll be one to make quick progress through the ranks.
Silver Flyer is owned by Mauritian-based Serge Seenyen of Mr Brock fame and Mike conveyed his good wishes, saying. “Silver Flyer is a promising sort and it was worth supplementing him.”
Mushreq and Ginipre are two other progressive sorts who have been entered for the R500,000 contest.

Sheikh Hamdan of Dubai will be delighted with his own R1,2 million buy Meezah, who came from near the back of a MR78 field to win Race 8 over 1300m by 3.25, her third win from seven starts.
The Goldkeeper filly is a half-sister to Rabiya and Secret Of Victoria and hails from one of the most formidable damlines in the stud book.
