CAPE ROYAL (SAF)
2011 Summerhill Ready To Run Graduate

Dean Kannemeyer Racing’s tremendous Easter Monday was highlighted by a jaw-dropping win by debutante Cape Royal (SAF) (Royal Academy (USA) - Dubai’s Fairy (GB)).

Cape Royal gave the stable its second juvenile winner of the current season and stamped himself as one of the most exciting prospects in South African racing.

The Summerhill sales topper, when making R1.5 million at the 2011 Emperors Palace Ready To Run Sale, Cape Royal was all the rage for Monday’s race, a maiden juvenile plate over 1000 metres.

Sent off at the prohibitive odds of 9-10, the magnificent looking bay simply trotted up to give top jockey, Karl Neisius his 3,000th win. Neisius has enjoyed a long and successful partnership with Dean, and the pair have enjoyed many high-profile triumphs together (most memorably with Dynasty) and it was extremely fitting that Neisius reached this landmark when riding a Kannemeyer horse.

Dean has also enjoyed a lot of success with Cape Royal’s sire, the late Royal Academy. Dean saddled the stallion’s sons, Eyeofthetiger and Express Way, to win the G1 Vodacom Durban July and Cape Guineas respectively.

Cape Royal has the pedigree to match his imposing physique. His dam, Dubai’s Fairy, is a daughter of leading British sire, Medicean, sire of recent Dubai World Cup runner up, Capponi. Dubai’s Fairy is also a half-sister to UK G2 winner Just James, and is from a strong international family.

Congratulations go out to winning owner, Lady Christine Laidlaw, who owns this exciting juvenile. Cape Royal should give her plenty of thrills and much excitement if his debut is anything to go by!
