Aust-Bred Woodman Son Wins South Africa Black-Type
In South Africa, Australian-bred 6YO gelding Silverpoint (Woodman-Early Song, by Precocious) scored a 0.75-lengths victory in the Listed Drum Star Handicap (1800m) at Turffontein for trainer Mike Azzie. Silverpoint (a $35,000 yearling consigned by Windemere Stud at the 2003 Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale) now has 6 wins (also including the Gr2 South African Derby as a 3YO) & 15 placings (including 2005's Gr1 Durban July over 2200m at Greyville & 2006's Gr2 Colorado King Stakes over 2000m at Turffontein) from 36 starts. Windemere has catalogued Silverpoint's yearling half-brother (by Reset) at next week's Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale.
