SINGFONICO is not the most consistent sprinter in training, but he can also never be left out. Six wins (before Saturday) was a testimony to his ability and again it was surprising to see him go off at 30-1 given the stable’s hot run of form.
The six-year-old by Bezrin posted his seventh career win, storming up on the inside of the field to complete the 1000m handicap in a fast 56,46s under Hennie Greyling.
“I worked him all week and he was sound and happy, also the rain played in his favour,” said Greyling.
“His merit rating was too high the last few runs. Today, he was back over 1000m and with the sting out of the ground. There was a lot of speed in the race, Hennie kept him on the bit and he ran through well,” said assistant trainer Francois Naude.
Singfonico races for Tobie Spies, in his familiar green silks.
