MALMOOS is just one step away from Triple Crown glory. With the Gr.2 Gauteng Guineas already in the bag, the Varsfontein-bred kept his Triple Crown dreams alive when he scored a visually impressive victory in the second Leg, the Gr.1 SA Classic (pictured).
The late Sheikh Hamdan's Captain Al colt forged away in the straight to win full of running and finished off his race in the manner of a horse who should relish the extra in the final leg, the Gr.1 SA Derby.
Remarkably, our stallions virtually dominated the outcome of this 1800m race, with Gimmethegreenlight's son Second Base taking second, while fourth-placed Flying Carpet is by our stalwart Judpot.
A R4.4-million National Yearling Sale graduate, Malmoos has now won six of seven starts, which also include the Gr.3 Graham Beck Stakes and Gr.2 Concorde Cup.
His dam Justthewayyouare foaled a Gimmethegreenlight filly in 2020 before visiting Captain Al's Champion son One World.

SUPERIOR racing fitness proved the deciding factor in the Gr.2 Hawaii Stakes, which saw the return of Gimmethegreenlight's Champion son Got The Greenlight.
Unraced since his gallant second in the Gr.1 Vodacom Durban July, the now four-year-old was far from razor sharp and had to bow to the year-younger MK's Pride, who had to pull out all the stops for a half-length win.
Trainer Joe Soma had warned beforehand that his champion would need the run and there's no doubt his charge will strip a much fitter horse for his next target, the Gr.1 HF Oppenheimer Horse Chestnut Stakes.

VARSFONTEIN-bred Yulong Prince continues to make history. The only South African male to taste Gr.1 success Down Under, he will be the first South African-bred to join the Australian stallion ranks when he retires to stud in Victoria for the 2021 breeding season
Racing under his given name Surcharge, the son of Gimmethegreenlight  proved himself a leading three-year-old in South Africa for owner Ian van Schalkwyk and trainer Stuart Pettigrew. Runner-up in all three legs of the Triple Crown, the handsome colt capped his South African career with a deserved Gr.1 win in the Daily News 2000.
Sold to Chinese billionaire Yuesheng Zhang and renamed Yulong Prince, he ran twice in Dubai before his arrival in Australia where he joined the powerful stable of Chris Waller.
Victory in the Gr.1 Kennedy Cantala Stakes provided his owner with a first top-flight win on Australian soil and followed on a win in the Listed Furphy Plate and a neck second in the Gr.2 Chelmsford Stakes.
Waller was glowing in his praise for the horse:  

“Yulong Prince was a very impressive horse on two fronts. Firstly, his ability to compete at a high level overseas and then come to Australia and adapt to our conditions of training and racing, once again at the highest level, was a great feat not comparable by many. Secondly, he is a very good-looking horse with a good attitude, and obviously sound and well-performed.”
The six-year-old ticks all the boxes to become a successful stallion. In addition to his good looks and sterling racing record,

he hails from the fine British female line of Milly Moss, ancestress of the successful Klawervlei based stallion Count Dubois.
