PRICELESS GEM

We've had an exciting time recently with our horses running well having been part of a lot of quartet bets this past month in both Gauteng & KZN. 

We were thrilled to have our first winner for Mr Brunchault at the end of October with PRICELESS GEM winning over 1800m at Greyville and Muzi Yeni in the saddle. In KZN we have had SORBONNE run a very close second and hope she will win in the near future. COTSWOLD ran a beautiful third to German Lady followed the next week with a close up second. TEPPANYAKI also ran close for a second place, a good ride from Alec Forbes. One of our new additions to the yard was RISKY ROSCO, who went on to earn three cheques in the space of 16 days. Finally in KZN, UNTIL WE DANCE surprised us with a wonderful second. Ivan & his team are very happy with the yard especially now the rains have come. 

A great week for Chris beginning with a double in the first & second race at the Vaal on the 18th November with PENITENT PIRATE (winning by 1.75 lengths) & ROYAL CONSORT (winning by 4.75 lengths). A big congratulations to Mr & Mrs Kuhn a stalwart supporter of the yard! Prior to PENITENT PIRATE's win, he ran a great second. AZA ARROW who runs on the 20th November, ran extremely close bringing home a second,  just 0.05 lengths behind the winner, this his second start.  THE GOLDEN BOY has brought home three cheques since the beginning of October.

A big thank you to all our owners for their support, all the jockey's for their hard work and great rides and to all the staff at the yards who put in the work behind the scenes.


AUGUST 2014 

So far it has been a wonderful month for the Chris Erasmus Racing yard with 4 winners just last week! 

It started with THE FIFTH DAY winning over 2450m at Turffontein followed by SAMMY SILVER winning on the same day. The KZN satellite yard then had a good day at Scottsville with a 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th. Just a couple of days later Chris took home another double with PRINCE OF DARKNESS & KING'S WILD winning at Turffontein. Since then the yard has had another few 2nd's & 3rd's!

We would just like to congratulate Werner Kuhn, Tjaart Strydom, Ansie Erasmus & Edwin Scheepers on their lovely wins. Also, a big thank you goes to Piere Strydom & Francois Herholdt!
