Our star Silvano galloper Mr Winsome walked off with the Outstanding Stayer Award at the KZN Racing Awards held at a glittering function at the Elangeni Hotel on Tuesday evening, 29 August.
Mr Winsome – champion!
In raising a toast to the gutsy gelding, Dean also paid tribute to staunch owners Barry Zeidel, Bryn Ressell, Gladys and Roy Meaker, Victoria and Darryl Dickerson and George Nichas and said that horses like Mr Winsome don't come along every day.
"He has a huge heart and the ability to match. I'd like a stable full of Silvano's! They mature beautifully and can run. Thanks to my loyal owners. Mr Winsome will be based in the Cape for the summer season. I must thank Gold Circle for an outstanding evening. Mr Winsome's award was of course the cherry on the top!" said Dean.
Mr Winsome was bred by Riverworld Stud.
