“SOMEONE, SOMEWHERE, WILL BE A MILLIONAIRE”
The names are in at the first entry stage for the R1,5 million Emperors Palace Ready To Run Cup, scheduled for Turffontein on 6th November. All told, there are 29 entries, seventeen of which know the sweetness of a Summerhill pasture. The dominant yards in terms of entries, are Mike de Kock (5) and Charles Laird (4), but this isn’t a race for which you simply stick up your hand and, hope to win. There’s too much at stake here, and there are trainers who’ve made something of a speciality of winning it. Absent this year is the Gary Alexander yard, which has earned a cheque in all three of its initial runnings, but in the mix again is the inaugural winner, Mark Dixon (who took down the colours of Imbongi with Umngazi,) and Paul Matchett, whose seen the ink on a promisory note on more than one occasion.
There’ll obviously be a few disappointments going to the line, but at the moment here are the entries in invite order. The supplementary entry stage is on 29th October, so if you’re out there and you’ve read this, and you think you’ve got a worthwhile candidate, bear in mind. It could be worth R1,5 million to someone.
