GREEN Street Bloodstock’s lightly-raced three-year-old filly Inga, trained by Gavin van Zyl, burst through late under jockey Warren Kennedy to win at Turffontein on Saturday – by “the width of a piece of paper!” in the words of race caller Nico Kritsiotis.
Inga, by Mambo In Seattle, was a R50,000 buy from the 2015 CTS Ready To Run Sale and so far she’s won just short of R140,000 for the partnership.
Inga captured a MR76 Handicap over 1600m, her second win from only 7 runs, and Justin Vermaak was delighted to have GSB owners back in the winner’s enclosure after a string of places in a dry spell.
He said: “This was a very good performance after a rest considering it was short of Inga’s best. She will be an effective filly when she goes 2000m on the standside track. It was a superb ride from Warren Kennedy and if not for him she wouldn’t have won.”
Things always turn, there will be many more winners to come and Last Outlaw, fourth in a MR72 Handicap after a rest, confirmed that there are good days ahead. He looked well on parade, ran a good race and would arguably have finished a lot closer to the winner Arpad if he’d found a clear run earlier in the contest. Beaten 2.75-lengths in the end, he could go close soon.
