Work Ethic holds on, gamely

THREE-year-old filly Work Ethic, owned by Green Street Bloodstock and partners, recorded a gutsy victory in a MR90 Handicap over 1800m at Turffontein on Saturday.

Work Ethic dropped in class, but had to shoulder 59,5kg and gave away weight to all but one of her mostly older rivals. Marco van Rensburg rode an enterprising race, making the pace, quickening clear halfway down the straight and then pushing on gamely to hold off the late challengers.

Work Ethic, by Ideal World, was bred by Mauritzfontein Stud and is trained by Gavin van Zyl.
