Three graduates of CTS Sales were honoured when the Racing Association’s Highveld Feature Awards were presented at a gala ceremony on Friday.
Basadi Faith, unbeaten after four starts which included wins in the Listed Ruffian Stakes and the Gr2 SA Fillies Nursery, was awarded Champion Two-Year-Old Filly. The R45,000 daughter of Master Of My Fate is raced by Joe Abreu and Juanita van der Merwe and trained by Paul Matchett.
The award for Champion Three-Year-Old Filly went to owner Chris van Niekerk’s amazing R20,000 buy, Return Flight, a winner of two legs of the 2019 Triple Tiara for trainer Sean Tarry.
The Brett Crawford runner Pacific Trader secured the award for champion sprinter courtesy of his Gr1 Computaform Sprint. A son of Sail From Seattle, he cost owners Fred van Wyk and Tienie Maritz R150,000 and has already earned more than six times his purchase price.
