Rain In Holland claims top award

NATALIE TURNER AND SEAN TARRY

Jack Milner: It came as no surprise when Rain In Holland was announced Highveld Horse Of The Season at a function held at Melrose Arch on Saturday night.

The three-year-old daughter of Duke Of Marmalade has been a revelation this season, winning all three leg of the Wilgerbosdrift Triple Tiara as well as the Grade 2 Gerald Rosenburg Stakes against older horses.

She is trained by Sean Tarry and is bred by Drakenstein Stud.

Tarry played tribute to the filly. “She is a true professional and easy to work with. I would also like to thank Gaynor Rupert who is a pleasure to train for.

“There is no pressure, and she leaves you alone to get on with your job.”        

Drakenstein was also named as Champion Owner.

Rain In Holland was also unopposed in the Champion Three-Year-Old Filly category.

The rest of the night belonged to trainer Paul Peter and runners from his yard. He was named Champion Trainer while Equine Awards went to Maharanee, Master Archie, MK’s Pride and Astrix.

Master Archie, winner of the Grade 1 Computaform Sprint claimed two awards, Champion Three-Year-Old Colt/Gelding and Champion Sprinter.       

The Awards are presented by the Racehorse Owners Association. The judges for the Equine Awards were Robert Garner, Nico Kritsiotis and Jack Milner. The master of ceremonies for the evening was Alistair Cohen.
