Canon Gold Cup
Greyville, Turf, 3200m
31 July 2011

Sunday saw the official end of the 2010 / 2011 South African Racing season, which although dampened by weather and the date change, provided a warm finale for Vuma customer Sean Tarry!

With first and second past the post in the R1 Million Grade 1 Canon Gold Cup with Aslan and Kolkata respectively, the results confirm that the Tarry yard is back on form!

The Vuma team is thrilled to have been part of these results and our congratulations to Sean and all in the yard, and especially to owners Mrs Leisher, Mr Joseph and Chris van Niekerk.

We look forward to successful season ahead - we love to feed your Champions!

Popular trainer, client and friend of Vuma and Summerhill, Basil Marcus, is launching his training career in Singapore. He has just ended the Cape season with a string of wins; among them a treble, including the Cape Breeders Club Jamaica Handicap on Saturday 16 January, the same day that his Singapore-bound horses left Cape Town, and two on J&B Met day!

Basil started training in 2003 shortly after hanging up his boots, having ridden more than 3000 winners and having been seven-time champion jockey in Hong Kong. Basil has been training in Cape Town where he had more than 120 horses in his string and was consistently among the leading trainers. The yard will continue to operate with the remaining horses, while Basil is in Singapore.

His major training successes, include winning the G1 Cape Guineas and the G1 Cape Derby with Jay Peg, who went on to win the 2008 Singapore Airlines International Cup and the 2008 Dubai Duty Free, trained by Herman Brown. Basil also trained the Summerhill-bred Desert Links, winner of the G1 Canon Gold Cup in 2008. Desert Links will return to his care after finishing third in the Group 1 Singapore Gold Cup in November when prepared by David Hill.

Basil was granted his licence by the Singapore Turf Club in June 2009 and will be based in the new stable complex at Kranji racecourse. The first thirty two horses left Cape Town on 16 January and are settled in Singapore, in preparation for the upcoming season. The string includes Ready to Run graduate Trafalgar Legacy, by Rock of Gibraltar and we look forward to watching their success.

The Vuma team wishes Basil every success in his new chapter – We love to feed your Champions!
