Do It Again was running to win the treble after claiming top honours in last year’s Durban July and the Queen’s Plate and was the bookies’ favourite ahead of the race. However, the horse was lagging behind at the start and had too much ground to make up, although it finished strongly in second.
Third was Head Honcho and fourth was Undercover Agent.
Thirteen runners had lined up in the R5 million Grade 1 Sun Met race at Kenilworth Racecourse over 2,000m on Saturday afternoon.
It was the ninth race in the event’s history, and it has grown to be one of the most anticipated on the racing calendar.
SA champion trainer Justin Snaith had the strongest hand, with four of the 13 runners.
