Racing PostCapetown Noir destroyed the opposition Saturday in the Cape Premier Yearling Sales Guineas giving Dean Kannemeyer his fifth Cape Guineas win in nine years; justifying some massive market support.

The 9-10 shot, available at 11-5 two days earlier, was unleashed by jockey Karl Neisius over two furlongs out and he strode clear to beat 35-1 shot Chave De Oura by three-and-a-quarter lengths with Black Toga and King Of Pain filling the places.

Welsh-born Neisius, normally known for delivering his mounts almost on the post, said: “The course is running so fast that I decided to go quite early and let them try and catch me. He then ran all the way to the line. I didn’t look back because I knew nothing was going to get to me.”

Kannemeyer added: “I was so convinced he was going to win that, had I been a gambler, I would have had as much as I could on him. I think we will go for the Cape Derby on February 2nd next but we will look at the J&B Met on the same day. He is not entered but I might supplement him.”

The winner is owned by Lady Christine Laidlaw who also has horses in training in Ireland and was celebrating her 25th wedding anniversary as well as her husband’s 70th birthday.
