The article on today’s SA Horseracing says it all: 

“Solskjaer, if retired to stud as it stands, was never really tested over his true trip of 2000m. Even though well beaten on Wednesday, he did show some signs of the rustiness disappearing with a sustained run to the wire. He had to win to be a big race contender [for the Durban July].

“His blood is awesome. From a potent sireline producing champions the world over to a strong Topville damline which includes the likes of Yeats (Gr 1 winner), a half brother to Solskjaer. This horse is an asset to any stud.”
