A likely big improver in the making

Nice run this afternoon from the big baby NORTHERN CONQUEST to finish 2nd in a novice 1300 metre race at Durbanville.  This iomposing colt-with-a-future is by Danzig stallion ALADO, a son of World Champion racemare ALBORADA.

The winner, LIAM, is clearly a very progressive juvenile having won comfortably last time as well.  NORTHERN CONQUEST, trained by Vaughan Marshall and ridden by Kris Teetan, was the best of the rest in spite of running very green.  He will benefit from a return to the galloping track at Kenilworth.
