The Listed Spook Express Handicap for fillies and mares at Turffontein in South Africa on Saturday went the way of New Zealand bred The Centenary (4m Mastercraftsman x Diamantaire, by Montjeu).
Another stakes-winner for leading South African trainer Mike de Kock, The Centenary posted her sixth win from 18 starts when scoring by a long neck in the 2450 metre staying test.
