Alboran Sea looks like fitting into the Golden Slipper

Jack Milner

Finding winners on Vodacom Durban July day is rarely an easy task but punters will have at least one banker if Beach Beauty accepts to run in the Grade 1 Jonsson Workwear Garden Province Stakes over 1600m.

This could very well be her final race before going to stud and it will no doubt be an emotional moment for trainer Dennis Drier who has always had a special place in his heart for this daughter of Dynasty. Last year she won this race from barrier No 15, beating Espumanti by 1.50 lengths. This year she will jump from no worse than No 4 draw.

She has beaten most of the other entries quite comfortably so at weight-for-age conditions should do so again.

The two other Grade 1 supporting features are the Durban Golden Horseshoe for two-year-olds and the Zulu Kingdom Golden Slipper for two-year-old fillies, both over 1400m. The two events have attracted a large entry and they are races in which the draw could play a vital role.

Trainer Mike de Kock has entered Grade 1 Allan Robertson Fillies Sprint winner Alboran Sea in both events but as she has drawn pole position in the Golden Slipper and is drawn No 39 of 43 nominations in the Golden Horseshoe, he will no doubt opt for the fillies’ race.

Guiness, who won the Tsogo Sun Medallion, has been drawn in the middle of the field at No 23 and Drier won’t be too happy about that.

Supplementary entries close at 11am on Friday and declarations close on Monday 23 June.
