DARJEELING MAKES A VERY GOOD START
Having enjoyed the Listed win and Grade 3 2nd of AMBIORIX, our second purchase from the CTS Cape Premier Yearling Sale of 2020 with Burns Racing DARJEELING (2yo colt by RAFEEF out of a DYNASTY mare) ran a very close 2nd in a too-short 1200 metres maiden at Kenilworth today.
COSMIC HIGHWAY, seemingly an out and out sprinter, beat DARJEELING by only 0.8 lengths, well clear of the 3rd. Ossie Noach rode our fellow on his debut, encountering and overcoming traffic amongst green debutants. Vaughan Marshall trains him nd will be taking him to Durban for a tilt at major races there.
