muhtafal stallion
(John Lewis)

The last two days have ensured that our “General” maintains his drive in the top five sires on the stallion log all the way to the line. At Scottsville on Wednesday, Unique and Rocking Boy pretty much trotted up, while Valloire did the trick for his sire at the Vaal yesterday.

Interestingly, Summerhill had four Ready To Run graduates in action at the Vaal, and all three came home smoking. Notably, Glastnost for Diane Stenger, Mat Gold for Paul Matchett, and the first of our Australian imports to get to the races, Mzingeli, fulfilled Andre Macdonald’s every prophecy of the last week that he was a “smoking gun”, and only had to be let loose.
