Mary Slack and Rat Burana
(Summerhill Stud/Gold Circle)

Rat Burana, scored her second Grade 1 win last Saturday, giving Mike de Kock his 60th Grade 1 win and chances are he will be well over 100 before his 60th birthday!

“It was fitting that Rat Burana is owned by Mary Slack,” said Mike de Kock. “I’ve trained many Grade 1 winners for Mary and her family. Mrs Oppenheimer’s Horse Chestnut in the SA Derby was my 20th Grade 1 back in 1999, I still rate him the best I’ve trained. Here we are 40 Grade 1’s later. It’s a milestone for which I thank all my patrons.”
