SILK ROAD GETS BLACK TYPE
Second to perhaps the best 2 year old in South Africa
12th Apr 2013
Smart, Naughty, but Good! SILK ROAD, winner of his first two races then misbehaved on Met Day, took on perhaps the best 2yo in South Africa today RED RAY and chased him home to finish 2nd in the Listed "Somerset"... at Kenilworth, a big step forward. Young Stallone Naidoo was a late substitute but rides him at home - he needed to know him to keep SILK ROAD straight! Owned and bred by David Allan, the colt was sent out by Vaughan Marshall with black type in mind and successfully so. His dam MISS KOOL KAT, bought by Allan in Newmarket and a winner at Kenilworth herself, is a resident of Hemel n Aarde and now in partnership with David Hepburn Brown. Her first foal is a two times winning 2yo and Listed placed. So far.
