Fourth win on the road to higher targets in Durban

Nothing like a winner on J&B Met Day! On one of racing’s (anywhere) most colourful occasions that includes 3 x Gr1s and strong supporting races, NORTHERN CONQUEST a 3 year old gelding by ALADO out of ROMANTIC by CAESOUR was given a fine ride by MJ Byleveld to justify trainer Vaughan Marshall’s patience and win a strong 1600 metre handicap in the colours of Miss Kirsten Rausing. Purchased by Allan Bloodlines from his breeder Klawervlei Stud and managed for Miss Rausing within the support programme for her stallion ALADO, NORTHERN CONQUEST (a fouir times winner) has now answered the 1600m question and can be campaigned at strong levels including in the Durban Season.
