Tuesday, 14th June 2016

At Greyville in Durban, South Africa, Australian-bred 4YO entire Mac de Lago (Encosta de Lago-Macavelli Miss, by Vettori) scored a short-head victory for trainer Weiho Marwing in the R1 million Gold Challenge (1600m) for 3YOs+, over fellow 4YO entire Trip To Heaven (Trippi-Hellborous Blue, by Cee's Tizzy) & 4YO gelding French Navy (Count Dubois-Redoutable, by Elliodor). A $65,000 purchase by James Bester at the 2013 Inglis Melbourne Premier Sale's blue riband session, Mac de Lago took his record to 3 wins & 1 placing (including the Gr2 KRA Guineas in May 2015) from 13 starts for R1,236,875 earnings. Mac De Lago will now chart a course to South Africa's prestigious Gr1 Durban July Handicap.
