RACING EXPRESS SPEEDHORSE MR 104 HANDICAP

ARLINGTON TURF 1000m

26 FEBRUARY 2010

You’d think that having four runners in one renewal of the Gauteng Guineas would get the adrenalin rushing, and that the outcome of a R1million race could take centre stage in any semester of the year, let alone on the weekend.

But we have other reasons to celebrate at Summerhill, notably the 31st victory of the winning most racehorse of the past thirty years. At a 1:45 yesterday afternoon, Hear the Drums toted the impossible impost of 64kgs to his 31st win, and he’s now one more victory off the all-time record for South Africa, posted more than sixty years ago.

He’s a spectacular tribute to his upbringing, and to the patience and the skills of his owner, Peter Fabricius, and his trainer Des McLachlan.

We may not ever be able to say this again, given the time between the last record and this one, but as ever as a horseman you’re fortunate enough in your life to be associated with one like Hear The Drums, you’ve been blessed.
