Aust-Bred Delago Deluxe Wins South Africa Gr2
Coolmore-based Australian-bred stallion & dual Australian Champion Sire Encosta de Lago (Fairy King-Shoal Creek, by Star Way) added a South African juvenile group success when unbeaten Australian-bred colt Delago Deluxe (Encosta De Lago-Succeeding, by Flying Spur) maintained his perfect record with victory by a neck in the R500,000 (A$71,000) Gr2 SA Nursery (1160m) for 2YOs at Turffontein. Delago Deluze (ridden by Anton Marcus for trainer Charles Laird) defeated the geldings Midnight Serenade (Malhub-Sapphire Serenade, by Harry Hotspur) & Astro News (Silvano-Orange Moon, by Dominion Royale). Delago Deluxe (a $550,000 yearling consigned from Baramul Stud at the 2010 Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale) now has 3 wins (also including March's Gr3 Protea Stakes over 1100m at Turffontein) from 3 starts for R481,250 (A$69,000) earnings.
