Mamasita (Admire Main - Espinado) - Umsinzi Handicap / JC Photos (p)

Summerhill Stud produced three good feature winners over the past week and it was the 4 year old Admire Main filly Mamasita, the lesser fancied of the Weiho Marwing duo, who led all the way to win the R120,000 Umsinzi Handicap at Scottsville on Sunday.

The 1800m non black-type Umsinzi Handicap was only able to attract seven runners, with the class Grade 1 winner Bilateral carrying top weight under Anton Marcus and touching 9-10 before starting a firm 15-10 favourite. It was her stablemate Mamasita, on whom Anthony Delpech was quick to take advantage of a tardy gallop, who went up to dictate matters. She was held on a tight rein ahead of Supercede and Bilateral, with only seven lengths covering the field. In the run for home Delpech moved quickly and grabbed two lengths as his six opponents were caught flat-footed. Anton Marcus had Bilateral out wide but she simply lacked the toe to sprint with the leaders and she only got going late – falling out of the Place Accumulator, much to the chagrin of punters. Mamasita won full of running to score by 1,25 lengths in a time of 114,10 secs. This was her first win on turf. Just back from a feature success in the Cape, Gathering Fame chased her home with Supercede also running a fair race to grab third.

The 4 year old Mamasita is a daughter of Admire Main out of the one-time winning Joshua Dancer mare, Espinado. She has won 4 races with 6 places from 15 starts for stakes of R340,775.
