Lady Defender on the board

3x starts 1x place

2017-08-02 : R5k purchase Lady Defender (pictured in action) is starting to come to hand after only recently going into full training and she put in a promising effort to finish 3rd under 2 lengths behind the winner over 1450m at Turffontein this afternoon.

She cost an unbelievably low R5000 as an unraced 3yr old off the Shongweni Sale in February this year where I was the sole bidder landing her uncontested in heavy rain at the end of the auction with few buyers remaining. Francois Van Ghent was quick to snap her up and secure a mountain of a prospect for a hack’s price-tag. Fast forward 5x months and she’s bagged her first stakes cheque and the blossoming has begun.
