CTS graduate Tallinn (Callan Murray) drew clear to win a MR91 Handicap against the colts at Turffontein last Saturday by 3.25-lengths, remained unbeaten after three starts and signalled that she is a possible Cape Fillies Guineas contender.
Aside from the fact that she was impressive in a competitive race, Mike de Kock said about this talented three-year-old: “Sheikh Mohammed bin Khalifa Al Maktoum gave Jehan Malherbe and I an instruction to buy one yearling in 2011. We found Vercingetorix, and proceeds from the sale went to the Groom’s Trust.
TALLINN (Vercingetorix ) made it 3 from 3 today at #Turffontein

“At the 2018 Cape Premier Yearling Sale we told Sheikh Mohammed that we should support Vercingetorix at his first sale, and we bought Tallinn for R225,000 and Vaseem.
“We are proud today that we managed to secure Vercingetorix and this filly looks like she’s progressive enough to be aimed at the bigger features.”
