TWO-year-old Alfolk (AUS), has his sire’s muscled shoulders and breast and judged on his debut win at the Vaal on Thursday, he’s one to follow.
Callan Murray saluted the JC Photos photographer as he crossed the wire on Alfolk, a colt by Lonhro, the champion miler and former Australian Horse Of The Year, and later tweeted: “Great win from this boy today!”
Alfolk (15-10) won his Maiden Juvenile Plate over 1000m by an easy 2.25-lengths – it could have been 5 – and Mathew de Kock said after the race: “He’s a promising horse and we were confident of winning it if he didn’t prove to be green. He is sensible in his work, but one never knows until they get to the track.
“Alfolk looks to be a 1400m-miler in the making, like his father, but we’ll see how he goes. All the right signs are there, but as always we’d like to test him against stronger before we can form a more reliable opinion.”
Alfolk, a graduate of Sledmere Stud (NSW), races for Sheikh Hamdan of Dubai.
