MANNEQUIN

2008 SUMMERHILL READY TO RUN GRADUATE

Two feature races were run at the Vaal on Friday and trainer Paul Matchett bagged both; first with Cruso in the R150,000 Hampton Handicap (Listed) over 1000m and then following up with Mannequin in the fillies’ equivalent, the R150,000 Banyana Handicap (Listed), also over 1000m.

Mannequin, a graduate from the Summerhill draft of the 2008 Emperors Palace Ready To Run sale, was always rated hot favourite for the Banyana Handicap and won with a minimum of fuss.

In the vanguard from the off, she saw off Ex Unitate Vires racing into the final 200m and then Vareuse before going on to win by a convincing 2.25 lengths from Blingle Bells. This was Mannequin’s sixth career win and boosted the daughter of Kahal’s earnings to some R450,000.

He added that Mannequin was not done yet, “but we’ll have to see what the handicappers make of this run”.
