Grecian Laurel stunned all, including the stable, when running out a comfortable winner of her maiden at Scottsville on Saturday. Duncan was of the opinion that the daughter of Ideal World would need a lot further to show her true potential but she won a smart race. I really couldnt see her winning a sprint. I thought it was far too short for her. But they went a hell of a clip up front and shes got a lot of ability. said Duncan. I know she is a smart filly and she won because she is decent. When they win a sprint and you dont expect them to win, then hopefully you are sitting on a very smart horse. Grecian Laurel was bred by Wilgerbosdrift and Mauritzfontein and races in the latters colours for Jessica Slack. Good luck to the team.
