Wilgerbosdrift’s short-lived SA Nursery winner Soft Falling Rain has produced a real East Cape star in the form of Marmara Sea.
That gelded four-year-old made it six wins from six starts on the East Cape polytrack surface when he romped home at Fairview racecourse on Monday afternoon.
Trained by Alan Greeff, Marmara Sea justified 6-10 tote favouritism with a fluent display over 1400m on Monday.
Jockey Greg Cheyne bought his Wilgerbosdrift & Mauritzfontein bred gelding with a strong finish down the outside and the pair pulled clear to score by three and a quarter lengths with the minimum of fuss.
Now unbeaten in six starts in the Eastern Cape, the polytrack loving Marmara Sea looks unlikely to stop here.
He is one of a number of high-class gallopers to have emerged from the globetrotting Soft Falling Rain’s first crop, with others including Eastern Cape Horse Of The Year World Radar, G2 Gagasi FM Debutante winner Montreal Mist, high-class filly Gin Fizz, and the G2 placed Alramz.
Soft Falling Rain has seven lots on the Emperors Palace National 2YO Sale, and a single lot on the CTS Ready To Run, Unbroken 2 Year Old & Mixed Sale.
