Although much of this last weekend’s attention was focused on the R1,25million Emperors Palace Ready To Run Cup and the R600,000 Charity Mile, a son of Summerhill super sire Muhtafal, BATTLESTAR EXPRESS, was not the least deterred. He put in another hugely impressive performance in the Golden Loom Sprint (Listed) to confirm his growing stature as a top-class sprinter.
Running without blinkers on the instincts of top jockey Anton Marcus, BATTLESTAR EXPRESS was competitive from the jump, moving up a gear and winning easily by two lengths.
This is the seventh win from 16 starts for this little dynamo trained by Gauteng based trainer, Karen Anthony.
