The Justin Snaith trained Mucho Dinero made it four wins in a row when he stormed home to land Saturday’s Premier Trophy in exciting fashion. Under a perfectly judged ride from Grant Van Niekerk, the progressive four-year-old flew up to claim Saturday’s G2 feature by a neck in what proved a thrilling finish.

Owned by Nick Jonsson, Mucho Dinero had reeled off two wins in a row at the start of the season before romping away to land the Listed Woolavington Stakes by four and a quarter lengths.

Bred by Drakenstein Stud, Mucho Dinero, a R1 400 000 purchase from the 2021 National Yearling Sale, is considered a potential G1 Hollywoodbets Durban July contender by his connections.

The gelding is bred on the same TWICE OVER/CASEY TIBBS cross as dual July winner DO IT AGAIN as well as Listed WSB Sweet Chestnut Stakes/Listed WSB River Jetez Stakes winner YOUNG LOVE.

Twice Over is also the sire of recent G2 World Sports Betting Green Point Stakes winner SEE IT AGAIN, who did his Met chances no harm when finishing a game second in Saturday’s G1 L’Ormarins King’s Plate.

Another bred by Drakenstein Stud and also owned by Nick Jonsson, four-year-old See It Again ranks as one of the best horses in South Africa at the moment, with See It Again, a three-parts brother to Do It Again, having also claimed the 2023 G1 Splashout Cape Derby and 2023 G1 Daily News 2000.
