Eddington Wins SAf Gr1 Gomma Gomma Challenge
In South Africa, front-running 3YO gelding Eddington (Model Man-Sit Alkul, by Mr Prospector) scored a 2.5-lengths victory over his older rivals in the nation's richest race, the R3 million (A$430,000) Gr1 Gomma Gomma Challenge (2000m) on a rain-affected track at Turffontein. Despite being the only 3YO in the race, Eddington (ridden by Piere Strydom for trainer Dominic Zaki) defeated She's On Fire (Jet Master-Cream Of The Crop, by Concertino) & Catmandu (Makaarem-Gypsey Spirit, by Coastal). Last month Eddington finished 3rd in the Gr1 SA Classic (1800m) at Turffontein.
