Thembinkosi NxumaloThembinkosi Nxumalo is an experienced rider and has a way with young horses. He has worked with horses such as ICY AIR – Equus Champion Classic Female (9 wins including 2nd in the J&B Met G1) and Galant Gagnant, who put up an amazing finish in the 2007 Daily News 2000 G1, running 2nd to RUSSIAN SAGE.

Thembinkosi is very excited about this years draft and says there is definitely a champion or two lurking in this string.

The first of Thembinkosi’s “top 2 fillies” for this year’s draft is NENEKAZI.

NENEKAZI (meaning Lady) is by Slew the Red, out of a West Man mare, My Lady Furness.

My Lady Furness is a sister to Wings of Time (3 wins including 3rd Saldanha Stakes G1) and is from the family of APPELATE COURT (9 wins including Cup Trial G3 and Victory Moon Handicap G3) and PARTY TIME (9 wins including Cape Paddock Stakes G1 and B&H Fillies Guineas G1).
