A purchase earlier this year at Bloodstock South Africa Cape Yearling Sale, which takes place at the exclusive equestrian estate of Mistico, Captain’s Run has set a new course record on Thursday for trainer and part owner Corne Spies over 800m at the Vaal Racecourse.

She also banked the BSA Juvenile Bonus of R60 000, crediting it against her R80 000 purchase price for owners Corne Spies Racing (Pty) Ltd and Messrs X Spies and T P Zackey (J H de Lange).Interestingly, the second placed horse Heavens Girl, trained by Paul Peter, a major supporter of the Cape Yearling Sale, finished second just 1.25 lengths off.

The clock stopped in a record 45.42 seconds (bettering a 1985 record set by Gyaros), with the 2nd placed horse 45.63.
