Monday, 27th July 2009

In South Africa's 2YO male division colt Exhilaration (Captain Al-Entice The Wind, by Elliodor) scrambled home by the barest of margins to win the R500,000 (A$78,880) Gr1 Premier's Champion Stakes (1600m) at Clairwood. Exhilaration (ridden by Anton Marcus for trainer Dominic Zaki) defeated fellow colts Bulsara (Silvano-Gay Regina, by Sportsworld) & Australian-bred Solid Choice (Redoute's Choice-Venetian Pride, by Gone West). Exhilaration took his record to 3 wins & 2 runners-up (in May's Gr1 Gold Medallion over 1200m at Scottsville & April's Gr2 SA Nursery over 1160m at Turffontein) from 5 starts.
