Loadshedder was the only runner added to the nominations for the Grade 2 Betting World Gauteng Guineas when supplementary entries for the R1- million race closed yesterday.
The Guineas, to be run over 1600m on the Turffontein Standside track on Saturday 4 March, is the first leg of the R2-million SA Triple Crown.
Loadshedder, owned by Sabine Plattner and trained by Ande Nel, has so far raced only raced in the Western Cape. His first three races were over 1200m and the son of Gimmethegreenlight looked to have promise when placing in two of the three. He improved when tried over 1600m, finishing a 1.75-length third to Verdier in his first attempt and then winning his next two starts. He has drawn well at No 3.
Declarations close at 11am on Thursday and the fields will be announced at a time yet to be publicised on Tellytrack.
