GANESH Talai, a smart debut winner for Green Street Bloodstock earlier this month, followed his win with a good third in the Gr3 Umkhomazi Stakes over 1200m at Greyville on Saturday.
Ganesh Talai followed the rising star Chimchuri Run and Desolate Road home, was himself clear of the bunch and Justin Vermaak commented: “We are very happy with the run, he ended up with the run of the race. One of the reasons we ran him was because he drew so well.
“His work at home has been good, we were prepared to take a chance and we are delighted with this Gr3 placing.”
Ganesh Talai was one of the cheapest lots at the 2017 CTS Select Sale at R50,000. He’s a gelding by Philanthropist from an unraced mare by Gulch, owned by a GSB Syndicate. He is trained by Johan Janse Van Vuuren.
