Gr1 Cape Guineas winner Kilindini will not race in South Africa again and he will begin his journey to Hong Kong next month.
There he will be trained by Tony Millard. Kilindini is a R2,8-million BSA National Yearling Sales graduate by Silvano, bred by Varsfontein Stud.
WSB Cape Fillies Guineas winner, Rathmor-bred Missisippi Burning (Captain Al) will gallop at Kenilworth a week tomorrow and how she goes will be a deciding factor in whether she takes on older horses in the Majorca on Sun Met day.
Adam Marcus said yesterday: “I felt that the Cartier Paddock Stakes was too far too soon and the owners are of the opinion that she should only run in the Majorca if her gallop is really good and everything is in her favour because she has the Durban season in front of her.”
Stable companion Vardy, 6-1 for Saturday week’s L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate and now 11-2 joint second favourite for the Sun Met, has come out of his WSB Green Point win exceptionally well. “He is sound, eating up, looking superb and I am almost of the opinion that he has come on from it!”
