South African Group III Winner for Montjeu

Montjeu has had a benchmark year in Europe, his influence extending to South Africa on the weekend where his daughter Gorongosa (5m Montjeu x Parvenue, by Ezzoud) took out the Group III Racing Association Handicap at Turffontein.

An Irish bred mare trained by Mike de Kock, Gorongosa took her record to six wins from nine starts when saluting in the 3200 metre staying test.

Gorongosa is the 100th stakes-winner for Montjeu and is the first for her dam Parvenue, who comes from the family of Group I winner Lycius.
