Aust-Bred Xaar Son Adds South African Black-Type
In South Africa, former WA Oakland Park shuttler Xaar (Zafonic-Monroe, by Sir Ivor) added a black-type success when Australian-bred 4YO gelding Naples (Xaar-Lyphard Street) scored a 1.5-lengths victory in the Listed Listed Riverside Handicap (1600m) at Vaal for owner-breeder-trainer St John Gray. Naples (a half-brother to South African Gr1-winner Jam Alley) now has 5 wins from 12 starts.
