CAPABLE sprinter Tevez was around and earning in the days of Capetown Noir, Via Africa and Welwitschia and he’s still being a good servant to Mayfair Speculators, Bryn Ressell and Marsh Shirtliff.

The seven-year-old posted the seventh win of his career when he lifted the R150,000 Listed Southeaster Sprint over 1100m at Kenilworth on Saturday for the in-form yard of Candice Bass-Robinson, who also took third place with Ernie.

Tevez, who made his run near the grandstand rail, took command with 200m to race and kept on well under Anton Marcus from Asstar, who ran on late.

Bred by Avontuur Stud, Tevez is a son of Caesour and the Ellidor mare, Minelli. He has earned R1,15-million in stakes since he started his career in March 2012.

  1. One of the best things in racing is to see older horses winning late in their careers. I’ve heard a number of trainers say that horses only mature as mid to late five year olds, so it’s surprising that we don’t see more of the old boys winning. Anyway good training feat by Candice long may your form continue!
