Aust & NZ-Bred Horses Place In SAf Gr2s
At South Africa's major Turffontein race meeting in Johannesburg, Australian & NZ-bred horses filled placings in two Gr2 feature events: in the R1 million Gr2 Gauteng Guineas (1600m) for 3YOs, Australian-bred 3YO colt Killua Castle (Churchill Downs-Prayers'n'Promises, by Encosta de Lago) finished 3rd, beaten less than a length. And in the R300,000 Gr2 Hawaii Stakes (1400m) for 3YOs+, New Zealand-bred 5YO entire Galileo's Destiny (Galileo-Destined, by Danehill) also finished 3rd, beaten just over a length. Galileo's Destiny was a NZ$230,000 purchase at the 2009 NZB Premier Sale at Karaka.
