Gold CircleBlueridge Mountain (Arg) (Giant’s Causeway (USA) - Skyline Drive View (USA) paid tribute to the combined training talents of Gary Alexander and Joey Ramsden in the Grade 1 Klawervlei Majorca Stakes, with jockey Anton Marcus muttering about “divine intervention” when quizzed about his awesome starting skills on J&B Met day at Kenilworth Saturday.

The race looked open 200m from home, but Blueridge Mountain got her head in front and stayed on to win by 0,5 lengths from last year’s runner up, the Brett Crawford-trained Frequent Flyer.

The Mike Bass-trained favourite Hammie’s Hooker was next best ahead of Jet Aglow and Razzle Dazzle Rose.

According to Derek Brugman, the Ingrid and Markus Jooste-owned winner may go with Variety Club to the States.

Blueridge Mountain was consigned by Summerhill Stud to the 2011 Emperors Palace National Yearling Sale where she fetched R2 million, the second top filly of the sale. Her career record now stands at 3 wins and 2 places from 6 starts.
