Durban's Lucky Last Profitable for Aussie Investors
The midnight owls who stayed up in Australia to watch the Gr1 Durban July (Greyville racecourse) in South Africa – won by 5YO Balgarion – and then decided to kick on and watch Enable's demolition job at Ascot, would have found easy pickings in the last at Greyville just 20 minutes later. Australian-bred pair Infamous Fox (Foxwedge-French, by Nadeem) and Hudoo Magic (Choisir-Hudoo, by Hailing) filled the first two placings in the Listed Thukela Handicap (1600m), paying a lucrative $269 for the exacta. The winner was a bargain $25,000 purchase at the 2016 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling sale while the runner-up was purchased by Form Bloodstock for $60,000 at the 2017 Inglis Melbourne Premier Sale.
