Harry's Son Wins Gr2 Gauteng Guineas
At Turffontein in South Africa on Saturday, triple Gr1-winning stallion Haradasun (Fusaichi Pegasus-Circles Of Gold, by Marscay) added an Group success when Australian-bred 3YO colt Harry's Son (Haradasun-Dash On Ruby, by Anabaa) scored by 0.5-length for trainer Paul Lafferty in the Gr2 Gauteng Guineas (1600m) for 3YOs, over French Navy and Forest Fox. Harry's Son, who was last season crowned Champion South African colt, took his record to 4 wins (including the Gr1 Premier's Champions Stakes) and 6 placings (including the Gr1 Cape Guineas & Gr1 Gold Medallion Handicap) from 10 starts for over R1 million earnings. Harry's Son was a $60,000 purchase by Phillip Georgiou at the 2013 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale from the draft of Glenelg Park and hails from the family of Gr1 Australasian Oaks winner Miss Clipper, dam of Gr1-winning (Allan Robertson Fillies Championship) South African filly Ruby Clipper (Rubiton).
