Duncan has high hopes for the Dave MacLean-owned colt Thanksgiving who ran out a convincing winner of the Soccer 6 Maiden at Scottsville yesterday. Drawn wide, Muzi Yeni allowed the big-striding son of Dynasty to use his action and with a clear run to the line Thanksgiving won in the manner of a decent horse.
I knew that I had a good horse coming to the races today and with a bit of luck he would pull it off for us, said Howells. Like all Dynastys hes maturing and starting to come on nicely.
Yeni had little more to do than keep his mount out of trouble and his mind on the job without using his stick as Thanksgiving was still green. Hes a scopey horse. He takes time to get rolling so he should be well suited to a track with a long run-in like Turffontein.
