Mother Russia wins the TBA Paddock Stakes
Bravura outguns Noordhoek Flyer in the Investec Cape Derby
Bravura’s grandam, French Muse, is a half-sister to Russian Muse, who is the dam of Mother Russia. She added to her Majorca Stakes win the previous season with victories in the Grade One TBA Paddock Stakes and Empress Club Stakes. She also finished a half-length second to River Jetez in the J&B Met while conceding three half kilograms.
Our third Grade One winner of the season was Captain’s Gal, who won the SA Fillies Sprint (as well as the Grade Two Camellia Stakes).
In addition to these, Rushing Wind had several Grades Stakes places, including a second-place finish in the Golden Horse Casino Sprint (Gr I).
Captain’s Gal was the third of Normandy’s 2010 Grade One winners (more than any other stud!), with a win in the SA Fillies’ Sprint
