hanging stirrups and helmets

During what has been a relatively quiet time for Summerhill-breds on the racetrack, Mystic kept the flag flying for us at the Vaal yesterday. Running like a horse possessed he dug deep in the Merit rated 92 Handicap over 1450m on the sand to beat Argo Bay, Infinite Spirit (a R700 000 purchase and G1 placed) and The Giant (a AUS$ 200 000 australian import).

This little horse with a big heart is yet another success story from the Ready to Run sale. He was bought for R90 000, has now earned a tad over R280 000 and looks to have a few more in the tank.

Congratulations to all the connections: Sean Tarry, Scott Kenny, Devon Habib, Greg Blank, S Appanna, D Yutar, HN Yutar and AR Burke.
