ONE will see from this report that Naicker Bros are not prepared to take any nonsense from an upstart nephew by beating him in both yearling races on Saturday.

From Paul Roux, a distance of 272 kms after an 8am start they clocked at 11.45 to win the first four places as well as eighth leaving fifth, sixth and seventh places to RD Lofts. Better pull up your socks Romy for the next yearling race in two weeks time.

Not satisfied with a Paul-Roux win, the brothers also claimed first, seventh, 10th, 11th and 12th positions from Vrede – a distance of 213kms.

After an 8am liberation their first bird was clocked at 10.44am to gain a velocity of 1 296 metres per minute with RD Lofts claiming second and third positions and the Old Grizzle limping in at Attie’s favourite position of fourth. This leads me to wish Attie well on behalf of all of us and wish him a speedy recovery so that he can hurry back and remove this fourth place curse from my shoulders.

Get well soon Attie.

Not to be left out of the result of this race, MLofts sneaked in at eighth position to help fill 12 positions on the result sheet.

Next week the race point moves to Middelburg, an approximate distance of 380kms for an open race.
