Smooth Surfs at the Turf



A lovely Saturday morning has once again bestowed us with the fresh scent of Spring nectar still in the air.
Turfontein is where we headed today for some fast-paced horse racing action and an over-ly eye-catching card I must admit.

Before we look into the meeting today I feel I should address a hot topic that’s ringing around the world of horse racing.
Being an avid South African horse racing fan, I’m often asked about my favourite horses of all time.
Without a second thought, my answer is always the incomparable PAKISTAN STAR and the Australian Juggernaut WINX.

If one has ever watched some great races with Pakistan Star you will certainly know that this horse will certainly be listed in the history books as one of the greatest finishers of all time.
Winx is a champion Australian Thoroughbred racehorse, she has won 28 consecutive stakes races including 21 Group 1s, at distances ranging from 1300 metres to 2200 metres. 
Not even the likes of the Undertaker has achieved a winning streak like what WINX has done.

Recently I have noticed in many fraternities people have started bad mouthing and showing disrespect towards this legend. In my honest opinion, I admire this filly and all that she has achieved. She is honestly in a remarkable class of her own.
So what if she is not going to the Breeders Cup this year. The card there already shows a strong lineup. She has already proven that she is the best in the hearts of so many.

Aside from this I personally would love to see Winx compete in South Africa against the likes of Cascapedia, Alyaasaat or Socrat.

Well back to the Turf race meeting today we have plenty of value on today’s card
Lyle Hewitson has been in scintillating form since returning from his lengthy injury. He will be on quite a number of favourites today.
