In addition to saddling the winner of the Ipi Tombe Stakes at Borrowdale on Sunday, the Bridget Stidolph yard sent out another three winners.
First up was the unraced three-year-old Var (USA) gelding, Gemcutter, with Brendon McNaughton on board. He left a 1200m Maiden Plate field for dead, finishing 5.50 lengths clear of Clash City Rocker.
Gemcutter is owned by Ashley Dixon, Scott Buchan, Neil Evans, Gary Carter, Merlyn Chant, Ryan Sherwood and Paula Lewis. He was bred by Varsfontein Stud.

He is owned by Messrs S H Murray, C Davenport, K. Hatendi, Duncan Jones, G M Littleford, G Martell, H D Parbhoo, C M Rambo, P C Rugg, D C Samuels and S W Shutt. Ascot Stud (Pty) Ltd are the breeders.
