Malhub (USA) - Roman Dream by Jallad (USA)

It rained cats and dogs before the sports began at Turffontein Tuesday evening, and the turf came up sticky. This was a bit of a worry for the contestants in the Bauhinia Handicap (Listed) a “scorcher” at the minimum trip for fillies, and an event fabled for the production of some distinguished broodmares of the past. Tuesday night, Summerhill looked to have a pretty good hand, but with the going coming up as it did, there was no knowing what the outcome would be. There was some relatively unexposed form in the race, and nobody knew just how good the visiting opposition were, particularly the two Mogok fillies, Candy Tuft and Essential Oil, the former of whom had shown impressive form on two occasions behind the Group One winner, Noble Heir.

In the end, it was an all Summerhill affair, Onehundredacrewood making up stashes of ground from the back of the field on the stand-side, to run down her erstwhile paddock mate, Mannequin, in the dying strides, and win going away by a length in 57,8 secs, remarkable for the “soft ground”. Mannequin is already a Feature race winner this season, but this was the first Black type victory for the daughter of Malhub, whose progeny were posting their second stakes win in nine days, following Midnight Serenade’s win in the Storm Bird Stakes weekend before last.

Michael Azzie has in his care a Kahal half brother to the heroine, by the name of Emperor Augustus, whom we rated highly among the horses we consigned to the 2009 version of the Emperors Palace Ready To Run Sale, whilst last year, the next Kahal sister was snapped up by long-time customer, Paul Calderia. No doubt, both of these fellows will be rubbing their hands knowing they acquired two horses we considered ahead of Onehundredacrewood at the same stage. For the Jallad mare Roman Dream, this could be the beginning of an odyssey.
