FORMER champion trainer David Ferrraris, who has enjoyed a few weeks holidaying in South Africa and will be jetting back to his adopted Hong Kong on Sunday, will be indulging on Saturday in what has become his favourite pastime recently: Watching his son Luke ride for his father Ormond at Turffontein.
Rising star Luke has notched up winner after winner in the last few weeks, with his mother Pam also in attendance for some of them, and the proud parents would want to end their spell in SA on a high note with a few more winners at the city track.
Form suggests that this could be another “good day at the office” with Mr Ferraris and his grandson engaged in seven races with runners who all have chances.
Best of the Ferraris entries could be Rescue (Race 1) and Frankly (Race 4). Both have raced admirably against winners so far and look ready to exit the Maiden ranks.
Vivir is the joint highest-rated runner in Race 2 and on that alone has a winning chance, while Arrows Of Desire (Race 3) is perhaps a bit better than rated and also has a chance of sorts after the scratching of Louis The Seventh.
Shukamisa (Race 5), Querari Viking (Race 6) and Tigerlace (Race 7), are also priced up to be well in contention on a day that should be most enjoyable for the Ferraris team.
