Maliyakhe and Karl Neisus
Tuesday at Kenilworth saw the rise to form of Summerhill 2007 National Yearling Sales Graduate Maliyakhe, when he ran out a comfortable winner in the Avant-Guard Maiden Plate over 1200m. Following two places from two races, jockey Karl Neisus and his mount sealed the deal by powering to an impressive two length victory over runner-up, Ubizo.
Maliyakhe is a son of Muhtafal out of the Northern Guest mare, Snooty Lady, who is in turn an own sister to J&B Met winner, Angus. Maliyakhe is the full brother to undoubtedly one of the land’s most promising three-year-olds of 2008, Lostintranslation, who died tragically last year following a severe bout of Laminitis.
Snooty Lady is owned by old friends of the farm, Messers Rodney Thorpe and Roger Zeeman.
