Pocket Power made history today by taking a third successive victory in the R2,5million J&B Met over 2000m at Kenilworth Racecourse.

Jumping from draw 10, the six-year-old gelding by Jet Master raced to perfection. Under the cool-headed skill of jockey Bernard Fayd’Herbe, Pocket Power stalked the fighting filly Dancer’s Daughter before executing his winning move. He powered past the grey in the straight and held on gallantly for an historical victory with full sister River Jetez closing rapidly for third.

Trainer Mike Bass must be congratulated for bringing Pocket Power to undoubtedly his career-best racing form for the big occasion on J&B Met raceday.

This 32nd renewal of the J&B Met has witnessed the crowning of a true South African Thoroughbred Champion.

To Pat and Henry Devine, Marsh Shirtliff, Arthur and Rina Webber, Mike Bass and Candice Robinson as well as their team at Mike Bass Racing, Bernard Fayd’Herbe and of course to the South African dream, Pocket Power, the entire teams of Summerhill and Vuma extend our warmest congratulations.
