Our smart Silvano gelding Mr Winsome continues to up his game and made it a 100% win strike-rate for DKR at Scottsville on Sunday when he sauntered in by 5 lengths to win the 2400m Pinnacle Stakes.
Anthony Delpech was aboard the well-fancied Mr Winsome, who carried joint topweight in his first tilt at 2400m.
Despite the trauma of being reshod at the start, Mr Winsome gave a flawless professional performance to beat the stakes winner Serissa and register his fifth win from 16 starts.
A R400 000 Cape Premier Yearling Sale Book 1 graduate, the smart Riverworld Stud bred galloper took his stakes earnings to close on R470 000.
“In typical Silvano fashion, Mr Winsome is just getting better with age and I am very pleased that he showed us that he gets the 2400m. That opens up a few more options for us as we go into the season. He is a lovely horse to own and is consistent and very game. He will give our owners plenty of fun yet,” said Dean.
Congratulations to our staunch patrons Roy and Gladys Meaker, George Nichas, Bryn Ressell, Barry Zeidel and Victoria Dickerson.
