The Cheveley Stud bred and based champion Legislate enjoyed a fine season in 2021-2022, and the former Horse Of The Year’s good form continued when Legislate struck again at Hollywoodbets Greyville on Wednesday.
Legislate’s son Runaway Song made it three wins in a row when he scored a convincing win over 1400m
Trained, like Legislate, by Justin Snaith, the four-year-old had won his two previous starts when Runaway Song scored over 1400m twice, and the Legislate gelding duly made it a hatrick of wins when he landed Wednesday’s Gold Circle Racing Youtube Channel MR 88 Handicap (1400m).
Under an inform Serino Moodley, the Willem Engelbrecht Jr bred gelding pulled out more in the closing stages when holding off Captain Who to score by a neck.
Out of the Spectrum mare Miss Priss, Runaway Song has now won four times from just eight starts.
The four-year-old was a R220 000 buy from the 2020 National Yearling Sale.
His four time G1 winning sire Legislate had a fine season in 2021-2022 when his flagbearers included such graded stakes winners as Airways Law, Hoedspruit and Zimbaba.
One of the very best sons of outstanding sire Dynasty, Legislate hails from the same female line as last season’s G3 Track And Ball Derby winner Decorated (whose dam was sired by Dynasty) and former Equus Champion Gabor to name but two.
