SPRING SPREE STAKES GLORY FOR BSA BUY


Former Bloodstock South Africa graduate, Bohica, showed his class when he captured the Listed Spring Spree Stakes (1200m) on the Turffontein inside track on Saturday.

 

Big Blue Marble proved a handful at the start, but was the quickest out and went out to make the running, as the favourite Bohica was shuffled back and forced wide around the turn.

A wall of challenges quickly swallowed Big Blue Marble turning for home, as the fancied Urban Rock launched his challenge down the inside.

However, under recent Gold Cup winning rider SManga Khumalo, Bohica unleashed a blistering turn of foot which saw him pull clear of his rivals and score by three-parts of a length.

 

Bred by Summerhill Stud, the Bruce Gardener, Glen Morris and Brian Riley owned Bohica made it three wins in a row when he landed Saturdays Spring Spree Stakes in a time of 71.62.

 

The Michael and Adam Azzie trained gelding has now won five of 14 outings, with Saturdays win being Bohicas biggest win to date.

The first stakes winner for Equus Champion, and former National Sale graduate, Capetown Noir, Bohica was a R300 000 buy from the 2018 Ready To Run Sale.

He is out of the unraced Mullins Bay mare Wysiwyg, a three-parts sister to Banyana Handicap winner Mannequin.
