Black Swan Stud’s inform stallion, and former Equus Champion, Elusive Fort continues to churn out the winners and the triple G1 winning son of Fort Wood provided two more winners at Kenilworth on Tuesday afternoon.
Trainer Brett Crawford sent out Elusive Fort gelding Douglas to break his maiden, when that gelding landed Tuesday’s www.caperacing Maiden Plate (1800m) by half a length.
Bred by Riverton Stud, Douglas was ridden to victory by Greg Cheyne.
Elusive Fort is also the sire of Treasure Hunt and Cracklin’ Rosie who ran first and second respectively in Tuesday’s sixth race, the Racing240 FM 76 Handicap (1400m).
The Piet Botha trained Treasure Hunt showed plenty of heart under Keanen Steyn, with the three-year-old Elusive Fort daughter scoring by a neck in Tuesday’s race.
Bred by part-owner Peter De Beyer, Treasure Hunt was winning for a third time on Tuesday, with the progressive filly having won two of her last three starts.
Elusive Fort, whose G1 Vodacom Durban July winning son Kommetdieding pulled a draw of 13 for the upcoming G1 Hollywoodbets Durban July, has had another fine season in 2021-2022, with his flagbearers including the Met winning Kommetdieding and high-class fillies Big Burn and Sprinkles to name but a few.
He has a single lot on offer at the upcoming KZN Yearling Sale.
