Nedo Nadi, by Fencing Master(GB) out of a Sobieski(USA) mare, won the 1200m Maiden Plate, after taking a few furlongs to find his stride. Epee (Munger) ran a close second, followed by the other Swanson first timer, Silver Buck (*Mjoka), and Business Jet (McNaughton).
The three-year-old winner is owned by Christopher Peech and bred in Zimbabwe at Rumbavu Stud. One for the notebook, perhaps?
Later on Sunday Christopher and Noelene Peech led in Belle Epoque, winner of the Sable Flyers (L), also from Kirk Swanson’s yard. Quite a good day!
