PERFECT Pursuit fought for 300m alongside the hot favourite Indy Ice in a 1600m contest at Turffontein and while he was pipped by a nose, deservedly was awarded the race in the boardroom.
GSB’s R40,000 CTS April purchase was well handled by “Cool Hand” Luke Ferraris, who kept his composure when he was carried across the track by Indy Ice, who was his own worst enemy shifting out.
“We’re back in the winners box! A Top ride by Luke Ferraris and probably the easiest decision the stipes on duty have had to make in a while!” commented Justin Vermaak.
Perfect Pursuit is by King Of Kings from Model Mam’selle and trainer Sean Tarry kept a share alongside the GSB patrons Vishnu Colan, Anthony Destombes and Wilfred Pirzl.
This one should go on to win more stake cheques and the owners will have fun. He’s already banked R73,000 from only three starts.
“Thanks to all for the support,” said Justin.
