JJ the Jet Plane captured the G2 Senor Santa Handicap at the Vaal March 24 before following up in the G3 Man o’War Sprint at Turffontein track last time April 12.
Piere Strydom took no prisoners here and after setting his mount alight from the outset, only had to keep the bay up to his work to draw the sting from all but Flintlock, who was closing with every stride.
