Glen Kotzen said last month he had his best string of two-year-olds ever and he was on the board twice with juveniles in yesterday’s meeting at Hollywoodbets Scottsville.

His Quasillo filly Ameena found a telling burst to run away with the Grade 3 Strelitzia over 1100m, winning by 1,90 lengths under Richard Fourie. It was a fine win considering it was her first outing since winning on debut over 1000m on the Hollywoodbets Greyville poly on January 9.

The progressive Mike Miller-trained Sabatini (What A Winter) finished second.

Earlier, Kotzen’s colt Cousin Casey, who is by Vercingetorix out of a Casey Tibbs own sister to Kotzen’s Durban July winner Big City Life, relished the step up in trip in the second race over 1400m to win by half-a-length from the only winner in the field, the Miller-trained Superior Force (Pathfork).

Cousin Casey had finished a decent fourth over the too sharp 1000m of the Listed Summer Juvenile Stakes back in January at Kenilworth on WSB Met day.

He did receive 3kg from Superior Force yesterday so both can be followed as they were clear of the rest.
