R2,000,000 SA CLASSIC (Grade 1)
Turffontein, South Africa
When he took home the winner’s cheque in the R2million SA Classic (Gr.1) last Saturday, Love Struck became Summerhill’s second winner of South Africa’s richest race for the Classic generation in the past three years. Gitiano’s charge from the rear made him the farm’s fourth Group One performing 3 year-old in 2013.
On a racecourse, the line between fame and pain can be ever so fine. It’s an old sporting truism that you can’t win the big ones without the BMT. It’s hard enough to get a place in the field, let alone pick a Group One hero. But you can stack the odds on your side, by simply looking at history.
