Three-year-old Scottadito took nine runs to win her Maiden, but when she did so at the Vaal on Thursday it was nice and impressive – a three-length success in a full field, and with a length or two in hand over the tough straight 1400m.
“She won a really good race, she was looking around and won with a bit in the tank. I think with blinkers on and over a bit more ground she’ll win again,” said jockey Warren Kennedy.
Scottadito has found a place in every run and looks to be improving with more maturity. “She’s been a little ATM machine for us,” said Corne Spies. “She’s done us proud, well done to the partners Ian Tasman, Jannie de Lange, Xander Spies and Francois Naude, and to Oldlands Stud for breeding her. I don’t think we’ve seen the last of her!”
Scottadito is by Master Of My Fate from Full Regalia by Captain Al, with scope in her pedigree!
