WATCHFUL FOR OSCAR PISTORIUS
At twenty-three, triple Olympic gold medallist, Oscar Pistorius is already a Legend. The “Blade Runner” is the best in the world at his game, and he’s won by some big margins. Yet, for all his spectacular performances, we don’t recall an 8-length demolition of any field of competitors. That’s what his filly, Watchful did to her opposition at the Vaal yesterday. The full sister to Fenerbahce kicked off at 40/1 (somehow, you just can’t imagine that sort of price about Oscar), and she strode away to the delight of her trainer and Emperors Palace Ready To Run panellist, Michael Azzie. Oscar is in Venice preparing for his big time comeback, and on the evidence of this run, Watchful could well be a multiple winner by the point of his return.
Bred at Summerhill by Administration and Stallion Services manager, Linda Norval, and our two good mates, Mike and Marty Meredith, Watchful has a beautiful new brother on the ground by Muhtafal. Irresistible to man, and even to Oscar!
