Regal Ransom Wins Gr1 South African Champions Challenge

Monday, 3rd May 2010

Also in South Africa, 4YO gelding Regal Ransom (Caesour-Palace Gossip, by Dominion Royale) flashed home from the tail of the field to grab the decision in a 3-way photo-finish to the R$2 million (A$285,000) Gr1 Champions Challenge (2000m) at Turffontein. Regal Ransom (ridden by Brandon Lerena for trainer Sean Tarry) scored by a neck from 5YO entire Rudra (Parade Leader-Tawny Red, by Northfields) with a further neck to 5YO gelding Smart Banker (Strike Smartly-Larapinta, by Al Mufti). Regal Ransom took his record to 7 wins & 5 placings (including March's Listed Drum Star Stakes over 1800m at Turffontein) from 14 starts.
