HEY PRESTO! NADINE SPARKLES!
A field of 25 battled it out for the Star of South Africa Diamond Handicap in the penultimate race at Ascot on Saturday 24th July. Nadine Forde saw off her rivals in a thrilling finish in which she beat Joey Ellis on Treetops Hotel by only a short head, with Treetops Hotel putting in a late challenge and only just failing to get up on the line. Kelly Harrison finished 3rd on Sawwaah 3/4 lengths behind, with Spirit’s Awakening and Annie Elsey only 1/2 a length back in fourth.
