Nexus Takes Gr2 Cape Peninsula For Rathmor Stud

Snaith Cape Met hope Nexus got up to win the R200 000 Gr2 Cape Racing Peninsula Handicap at a sundrenched Kenilworth on Saturday.

Riding the crest of a summer wave, the Snaith team made it four straight winners, and also saddled Love Happens, who ran a cracking third.

The second Met entry home was Kannemeyer’s Seventh Gear (Captain Al – Cherry On The Top), who ranged up dangerously in the centre around 350m out and finished a 1,70 length fourth.

Nexus is a full-brother to former Dennis Drier champion Lady In Black and to Noble Tune half-brother Mystery Boy, who finished 2nd recently on race debut.

He was bred by Rathmor and is a son of Dynasty (Fort Wood) out of the five-time winning Jet Master mare, Mystery Dame. According to the NHRA Mare Supplement, Mystery Dame has a 2018 Var named Inspector Morse to come through.

A R1,7 million buy from the 2017 National Yearling Sale, he has now won 7 races with 7 places from 18 starts for stakes of R651 400.
