PEERMONT EMPERORS PALACE CHARITY MILE RACE DAY

Turffontein, South Africa

3 November 2012

The TimesHer Serene Highness the Princess of Monaco will be at the races tomorrow. I’ll be there too, also serene - until, as usual, I start sweating on a dwindling betting stake.

Princess Charlene, the wife of Monaco’s Prince Albert II, is the guest of honour at the Peermont Emperors Palace Charity Mile race day.

The annual meeting sees hundreds of thousands of rands going to good causes, with various charities being linked to the fortunes of horses running in the main event.

The popular formula also has celebrities linked to the horses and charities, but this year all those common or garden variety “schelebs” will be eclipsed by the princess. Royalty trumps all. Even republicans like us in our socialist confusion get a bit dazzled by a sparkly tiara.

Tomorrow, we have a royal double whammy. Lesotho’s King Letsie - a keen thoroughbred breeder - also graces us with his presence.

Of course, Charlene is no stranger to Egoli. Her childhood home is down the road in Benoni - just like that of Princess Charlize of Hollywood.

Born Charlene Wittstock in Bulawayo (coincidentally the birthplace of yet another princess, Her Not-So-Serene Highness of My Neck of the Woods), she emigrated to South Africa with her family in 1989 and eventually became an Olympic swimmer.

Charlene’s parents, Michael and Lynette, own racehorses, so Her Royal Highness might even have been to Turfies before becoming serenity personified.

Turffontein first saw royalty in 1925, when Britain’s Prince of Wales, later King Edward VIII, dropped by. This geezer was hugely popular at the time, described as “handsome and debonair”, and the scheduled race meeting was moved from the downmarket Auckland Park track to the more salubrious Turffontein.

A “royal gate” was erected at the six-furlong post for the prince to enter through and be driven up the course in a cavalcade with mounted cavalry escorts, bands playing and the hoi polloi shouting “Hurrah!”

In 1945, the Aga Khan, an Islamic Royal of sorts, was at Turffontein and was amused to note that the winner of one race, Bir El Gobi, was the son of Khorsheed, a horse he’d raced in England but which had been a very expensive flop and exported to these shores. The old place’s biggest Royal occasion was in 1947 when King George VI, Queen Elizabeth and their daughters, Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret, toured the country.

That day, the Hartford (Summerhill-bred) Cape Heath, ridden by Basil Lewis, won the King’s Cup at the Big T and the wartime Monarch presented a special gold trophy to breeder-owner-trainer AR Ellis on the little grandstand balcony, decorated with the British Royal crest, that can still be seen at Turffontein today.

Since then, the only royalty celebrated have been the Kings of Racing. And a few Queens, of course. Young pretenders will make claims for racing enthronement tomorrow, particularly in the R2.5million Ready To Run Cup, whence arose Igugu, Queen of our Turf.

PEERMONT EMPERORS PALACE CHARITY MILE (Grade 2)

Turffontein, Turf, 1600m

3 November 2012

Pierre Jourdan is set to challenge for victory in the R600,000 Peermont Emperors Palace Charity Mile at Turffontein on Saturday 3 November for the second year running and fared well in the ballot for barrier positions at a special function held at Emperors Palace earlier this week.

The Charity Mile is a unique event that brings together top horses, celebrities and sponsors in aid of charity with each horse publically represented by a celebrity and running on behalf of a charity nominated by a sponsor. The finishing positions determine the amount each charity wins with a whopping R100,000 for the charity represented by the winning horse.

Pierre Jourdan’s connections were delighted when he drew at No 8 for the Grade 2 race because low-number stalls are an advantage over the Turffontein standside 1600m.

No runner has won the Charity Mile twice since its inception, but Pierre Jourdan tends to hit form at this time of year and his charity in this year’s race, San Michele, will be hoping for a bold effort by the Gary Alexander-trained gelding.

Champion trainer Mike de Kock has five runners including talented Link Man, who will run for Daily Sun-nominated charity African Angels and will be represented by actor Alfred Ntombela. Link Man scored a good win in the Joburg Spring Challenge over 1450m on the inside track at Turffontein this month and is reasonably drawn at No 10.

His highly regarded stable companion Silver Flyer (runs for Emperors Palace-nominated Khangezile Primary After-School Care Centre and has Sindy Mabe as his celebrity) did not fare as well in the ballot, drawing at No 16. Silver Flyer likes to run from off the pace though and a wide draw should not unduly prejudice his chances of winning.

De Kock will also field Meadow Magic, Silent Partner and Mujaarib. Meadow Magic, who runs for Racing Express-sponsored the Highveld Horse Care Unit and will be represented by Neil Andrews, drew at No 13, while Silent Partner got No 9 barrier. Ultra-promising Mujaarib has won all three of his races to date but drew wide at No 15.

Sean Tarry’s Whiteline Fever, who will run for Emperors Palace-nominated Peermont School Support Programme and will be represented by Anele Mododa, drew well at No 6. He was rated among the top three-year-olds last season and started his four-year-old campaign with an impressive win over 1450m at Clairwood this month.

Northern Emperor drew widest of all at No 19 and was later withdrawn, which brings first reserve runner The Mouseketeer into the field.

ACTION-PACKED CHARITY MILE RACE DAY

PEERMONT CHARITY MILE RACE DAY

Turffontein, South Africa

5 November 2011

What a fantastic month of racing November promises to be! The action kicks off at Turffontein Saturda with the R2,000,000 Emperors Palace Ready To Run Cup over 1400m and R600,000 Peermont Emperors Palace Charity Mile over 1600mThe Citizen International Jockeys’ Challenge between South Africa and the World team follows a week later and the R2,000,000 Sansui Summer Cup brings the month to a magnificent climax on Saturday 26 November.

The Charity Mile race day has grown into a festival of racing since its inception in 2003 and now boasts twelve races including five features and racing fans will be treated to more than six hours of high-class action. The most intriguing race on the day is the highly prized Emperors Palace Ready To Run Cup, an event that offers a mega payday to graduates of the previous year’s Emperors Palace Ready To Run Sale, with total prize money of R2,000,000 paying down to 10th spot.

South African Champion trainer Mike de Kock plays a strong hand for Cup glory with a formidable stable including Australian imports Dansili Express (AUS) and Frontino Gold (AUS) as well as the unbeaten Red Barrel. Sean Tarry’s classy Australian import, Verrochio (AUS), who won convincingly on his second start, looks well above average.

There are a number of fillies in the Cup and the pick is likely to be Roy Magner’s runner, Kinematic Countess. She has already contested nine races, so has more racecourse experience than many of her rivals. The Sean Tarry-trained Way West filly, Extra Zero, stands out. She certainly has the ability to add a few extra zero’s to Tarry’s bank balance and with 6 runs under her belt has the experience to boot. Interestingly, she has a sister in the folowing day’s sale, lot 65 Negev.

Look out too for the Cape raider, Dean Kannemeyer-trained, Admiral John Peter. Although a tough task, Dean’s father, Peter Kannemeyer, successfully raided Gauteng with Over The Air many years ago.

If victory were to fall to any of the Australia-bred runners, Sunday’s Emperors Palace Ready To Run Sale at the TBA Sales Complex will see an even huger demand for the imported prospects on offer.

Betting World has Red Barrel at 2/1, Verrochio at 4/1, Dansili Express at 9/2, Extra Zero at 7/1 and Frontino Gold at 12/1.

Mike de Kock is also going all out to win the Charity Mile and has five of the 16 runners carded including Rudra, Kavanagh, Welwitschia (GB), Empenoso Henn (ARG) and 2010 Summer Cup winner, Flirtation. Champion jockey Anton Marcus has the ride on British-bred filly Welwitschia, while stable jockey Anthony Delpech is sticking with Kavanagh, who he rode for the first time in a 1400m sprint recently.

Kavanagh seems to do best when saved for a late effort and Delpech gave the flashy colt a perfect ride that saw him beat Two Tone by an easy length. There’s a view that Kavanagh doesn’t really stay 1600m, but he’s capable of running a huge race if Delpech makes his move late. Nevertheless, the talk is of Welwitschia. Six months younger than South African-bred four-year-olds, this British-bred filly is now catching up fast and beat Dancewiththedevil in good style in a 1450m race on the Turffontein inside track recently. She will find Dancewiththedevil a much tougher opponent on this standside track and it’s worth noting that Dancewiththedevil crushed Welwitschia by four lengths over this 1600m in the Empress Club Stakes in April. Welwitschia is now theoretically 3.5kg better off (the equivalent of 3.50 lengths).

Several other runners have strong chances, notably the Gary Alexander-trained Ready To Run graduate, Pierre Jourdan, runner-up to Igugu in this year’s Vodacom Durban July, the Sean Tarry-trained Kahal colt, The Mouseketeer, winner of the Emerlad Cup in September, and the Kahal gelding outsider, Paul Gadsby-trained Black Wing.

Betting World has Welwitschia at 5/2, Pierre Jourdan at 7/2, Kavanagh at 4/1, Dancewiththedevil at 5/1 and The Mouseketeer at 14/1.

PEERMONT EMPERORS PALACE CHARITY MILE

Turffontein, Turf, 1600m

5 November 2011

NICCI GARNER - A few of Pierre Jourdan’s stable companions have come down with “a bit of a virus”, according to trainer Gary Alexander, but “we’re working on it”.

“A few of the babies have swollen legs and the virus seems to be filtering through to the older horses, which is why we haven’t had too many runners at recent meetings,” the Turffontein-based trainer said. “It’s mainly the youngsters, but you never know till they run - they just don’t perform as well as they should.”

Pierre Jourdan, who finished second to fellow Emperors Palace Ready To Run graduate, Igugu, in this year’s Vodacom Durban July and came out following a rest in a 1450m Conditions Plate on the inside track at Turffontein recently to beat Without Malice by 0.50 lengths, is set to start a warm order in the Peermont Emperors Palace Charity Mile on Saturday next week.

His trainer confesses: “Thank God the Charity Mile is not tomorrow. We’ve still got 10 days and Pierre Jourdan is showing no signs of being off colour. We’ll know for sure next week, but if there’s any doubt, I won’t risk him. His big one is the Sansui Summer Cup (hosted by Gauteng), so we’re hoping he pulls up nicely.”

Alexander commented that he is happy with Pierre Jourdan’s current wellbeing. “So far, so good. He’s working lovely and is getting better all the time. We didn’t expect him to win that Conditions Plate in his 2011 debut. The track was very quick and he won a nice race. I’m happy with No 8 draw for him. He’s never been a front-runner, so it will give Derreck (David) options about where to place him. Hopefully we get a bit of rain before the race to slow the track up. The tracks are running very fast at the moment.”

When questioned about the dangers, Alexander said: “One of the Mike de Kock runners. Which one, I don’t know.

2010 PEERMONT EMPERORS PALACE CHARITY MILE DRAW

pierre joburg spring challenge

PIERRE JOURDAN DRAWS 3 FOR CHARITY MILE

Pierre Jourdan drew at No 3 for the R600,000 Peermont Emperors Palace Charity Mile over 1600m at Turffontein on Saturday 6 November and his trainer Gary Alexander was delighted with what he described as “a cracking draw”.

“The draw is important over 1600m, especially at Turffontein,” he said. “We’re there for nothing because he won’t have to fight for position. Now we just have to leave it to Andrew (Fortune).”

Alexander added that his star four-year-old’s preparation was going well.

Pierre Jourdan, who has been beaten only twice in his career, made a winning comeback from a long rest in the Joburg Spring Challenge recently and Alexander mused: “It was a surprise when he won, but his class got him through. I’m very happy with him. As an individual he’s getting stronger and bigger all the time. He’s turning over nicely and is on track for the Summer Cup - if he can pull off a win in this race, it’ll be great.”

Pierre Jourdan will run on behalf of the Maphanzela Primary School and will be publicly represented by Bridget Masinga.

Trainer Mike Azzie was not too disappointed when Service Ace drew at No 9, though he said: “I would have liked to be drawn 3, 4, 5, or 6. But nine isn’t a bad draw and he will stay out of trouble from there.”

“Obviously the Summer Cup is his mission, so he’s just short of his best, but I have got him well enough to run a nice race. I want him to come out of the race unscathed and to come on from the run.”

“I wish the graded race committee would give this race back its Grade 1 status because, looking at the field, it deserves it. It is certainly a race I’m keen on winning. I came so close with Imperial Despatch. And if Service Ace did win it, I would be over the moon.”

Service Ace will be represented by Emmanuel Castis and will run for the Peermont Emperors Palace-nominated charity Thembakazi Primary School.

Galanthus’ trainer Tyrone Zackey was also at the draw ceremony and said: “Galanthus is a nice horse and he’s improving daily”.

He confirmed that Galanthus, who was most impressive in winning last week, is still on the upgrade and will be a contender in both Charity Mile and Summer Cup.
