At Kenilworth in South Africa, star 4YO mare Bela-Bela (Dynasty-Mystic Spring, by Royal Academy) posted the second top-flight victory of her career when scoring by 0.5 length for trainer Justin Snaith in the R1 million Gr1 Paddock Stakes (1800m) for 3YO+ fillies & mares, over 3YO filly Safe Harbour (Elusive Fort-Saint Isidore, by Rakeen) & fellow 4YO mare Silver Mountain (Silvano-Our Table Mountain, by Fusaichi Pegasus). Bela-Bela, who was last year crowned champion 3YO filly of South Africa, advanced her record to 6 wins (including the Gr1 Woolavington 2000 Stakes) and 1 placing (the Gr1 Paddock Stakes) from 9 starts and over R1.5 million in prize money.
