Game Snow Dragon gets her Maiden win

We were very fond of Snow Dragon when we she was raised here at Heversham Park, an attractive daughter of Act Of War and Paxmak , with her grey coat and dark mane, and we were pleased to see her win her Maiden in a 1250m race at Durbanville on Wednesday.

This was Snow Dragon’s fifth run, they’ve all been decent, and she’s earned over R42,000, recovering her purchase price of R30,000, a bargain selected by trainer Paddy Kruyer.

Jockey Anthony Andrews said: “She was gutsy. That Richard Fourie’s horse flew up on her outside helped her to get her head down on the line.”

Kruyer praised Andrews for a good ride and said that part-owners Frank Sharp and Margaret O’Hara were unable to make it to the track. Snow Dragon was led in by Marthilde Braxmeier, the third partner, who enthused, “That was never-wrecking!”

Snow Dragon has a beautiful half-sister, sired by Wings Of Desire, going to the Sibaya KZN Yearling Sale on 1-2 July.  She will one of six from the farm, and the only Wings Of Desire on the Sale. See catalogue here:
