Soft Landing Wins Gr1 SAf Garden Province Stakes
Concluding the quartet of Gr1s on South Africa's marquee day (the other was the July Handicap), trainer Geoff Woodruff saddled Soft Landing (Jet Master-Safety Net, by Golden Thatch) to win the R350,000 ($70,000) Gr1 Garden Province Stakes by a short neck under the urging of jockey Mark Khan. Second placing went to Bold Ellinore (Kahal-Ellinore, by Northern Guest), from Roxanne (Western Winter-Roxy Café, by Royal Chalice).
