TRAINER Comments:
Glen Kotzen was very confident about GOLD STANDARD’s chances.

“The 3 year olds this year are all top class and my horse, Gold Standard, is the best of them. To say I am confident of winning is an understatement. Gold Standard is very well and has the form to win.” 

JOCKEY Comments:
Richard Fourie is fast climbing the ladder to success and has shown that he is an astute judge of how good the horses are that he is riding. When asked about Gold Standard he was bubbling over with confidence and words like lovely horse, beautiful horse and top horse spilled out of his mouth. When asked to rate his winning chance on a scale of 1-10 he never hesitated to say 10.

MAGIC TIPS (Winning Form) Comment:
