(Footage : Tellytrack)


If you watched Havasha’s run on Saturday in the Racing Association MR 82 Divided Handicap over 1600m at Turffontein, you would have witnessed the “Green” son of Kahal laying down an ominous challenge to rivals for the R1,5 Million Emperors Palace Ready To Run Cup.

Bred by Summerhill Stud, the son of Kahal out of the Fahal mare Juniper Berry, displayed raw, fighting talent under jockey Anthony Delpech, taking his victory tally to 2 from 2.

Owners Tony Moodley, Karel and Kiki Miedema, Charl Pretorius and John Finlayson ( …members of the Freeracer Syndicate) as well as trainer Mike de Kock ( …also part owner of Havasha) must now be licking their lips with the prospect of a crack at the big prize come November 7th.

Of interest to followers of this year’s Emperors Palace Ready To Run Draft is that Juniper Berry comes from a high class female line which also produced Count duBois. On this year’s Ready To Run Sale, she has a filly, BOYSENBERRY, half sister to Havasha by one of the fleetest-footed thoroughbreds of all time, Cataloochee.
