DURBANVILLE SUCCESS FOR COUP DE GRACE

Klawervlei Stud's beautifully bred young stallion COUP DE GRACE (Tapit) came up with his second first crop winner when his two-year-old daughter FRENCH FLING swept to an impressive win at Durbanville on Tuesday afternoon.

Under Joshwin Solomons, the Klawervlei Stud bred filly justified tote favouritism when romping home to a clear-cut, one and three-quarter length win for owners Messrs A C Rhodes, P R C Freestone, J P Koster & Mesdames N Bost & J H Jones.
