MIKE de Kock expected Biblical Susan to open Thursday’s meeting at the Vaal on a winning note and jockey Muzi Yeni got the Bernardini filly home by half a length from Secret Star.
Bettors who took the 5-10 about Gaynor Rupert’s filly probably said a few silent prayers as she tussled with Secret Star, but Biblical Susan stuck to her guns to prevail.

Mike said that Biblical Susan had a scopy pedigree and good pace in her damline and that more can be expected from her. There was merit in the win, even though it was a narrow one. The second filly was backed on her debut and has run three nice races, while the third horse on Thursday was nearly six length behind the duelling pair, indicating what could be a good formline to follow.
