THIS IS THE OFFICIAL TELLYTRACK ROAD TO THE 2015 SANSUI SUMMER CUP 2015.
The top yards appear to hold all the aces in Saturday’s R2 million Grade 1 Sansui Summer Cup. Trainer Geoff Woodruff goes for his third successive victory in the Gauteng flagship feature, but he will have to thwart a serious challenge from some of his big name colleagues.
A capacity field of 20 will line up shortly after 4pm on Saturday for a handicap that is capable of throwing up a curved ball or two.

But the man in power and the obvious guy to follow is Geoff Woodruff, who ran 1-2-3 in 2013 and then 1-2 in 2014. That is a cracking record from a man who knows what it takes to win this race.
He saddles a trio of runners on Saturday, headed by recent Victory Moon Stakes winner Deo Juvente.
The son of Trippi impressed with a runaway win there but has more to do – and an 18 draw to beat. The experienced Sean Cormack takes over the riding honours from Callan Murray, who rides the lightly weighted The Captain’s Tune.
The Captain’s Tune has drawn best of all and was staying on nicely when beaten 4 lengths in the Charity Mile.

The third of the Woodruff trio is Master Sabina, who was beaten 4,40 lengths by St Tropez at his only start this year. He meets the Ramsden runner on a kilo better terms but may need another run or two to be competitive in this company.

The final field and barrier positions for Johannesburg’s most prestigious race, the Gr 1 R2 million Gauteng SANSUI Summer Cup to be run over 2000m, was announced today at a ceremony at the SmokeHouse Grill in the City and the tension-filled atmosphere provided a precursor to the big day on November 28.
The final field is full of class and the handicap conditions make it ultra-competitive, so the race will attract a lot of discussion before the roar of the crowd marks the off next Saturday afternoon.See the overview and form of each horse

Champion trainer Sean Tarry is as mystified as many veteran racing fans with the allocation of 61 kg in the Grade One Sansui Summer Cup. "There is no option but to withdraw my horse and aim him at the J&B Met, which is a conditions race. I was always under the impression that Grade One races comprised an 8 kg spread. Obviously I am wrong."
