Sweet Sensation (VAR) posted a gutsy third career win in a MR90 handicap over 1000m at the Vaal on Thursday and Corne Spies was chuffed.
“She’s a consistent filly and I liked the way she fought on to win this race, there was pressure over the last 250m and she kept fending them off. It was a small field but she had Before The Dawn, Rozara and Big Eyed Girl nipping at her heels.”
Corne praised S’Manga Khumalo for a strong ride: “We don’t get to use S’Manga that often, he rode his customary strong finish and we benefitted.”
Anthony Seur, successful as part-owner in Supreme Quest last week, enjoyed this win in a different partnership with Spies Racing, Dr Sagie Naidoo, Jay Ramnundlall and Sunil Heeramun.
Sweet Sensation has 11 places to show aside from her wins, and she’s banked over R230,000 for the partners. She was raised at Klawervlei.
