The former Joey Ramsden-trained and Adam Marcus-trained Favour Stud-bred Master Of My Fate gelding was a top class performer in South Africa and has now won Mauritius’s biggest race, the Medine Maiden Cup.
It was widely expected to be a cracking contest and it certainly did not disappoint!
In the end, it was the Vincent Allet-trained Twist Of Fate that took it all in the Medine Maiden Cup, producing a big run to score not only his second Classic win on our turf, but also earn his trainer his second win in this big race, after Ubusuku in 2007.
After following at the very back of the field, Twist Of Fate unleashed a powerful turn of foot when it mattered most, earning his jockey Rye Joorawon his fourth win in this race.
Unbeaten coming into this race, The Gatekeeper (Dynasty) (Chase Maujean) produced a valiant showing to finish as the best of the rest, while Consul Of War (Aus) (Monaco Consul (NZ) (Michel Platini de Oliveira) and Million Dollar Man (Act Of War) (Jose de Souza) produced solid showings to land 3rd and 4th respectively.
