Yesterday at Kenilworth - South Africa, Port Louis scored his first ever win in just his third start. Owned by Tikanand Gujadhur and trained by Brett Crawford, the two-year-old son of Gimmethegreenlight and Winning Eyes won the 2nd race with Luyolo Mxothwa in the irons. He got the better of Royal Aussie (Richard Fourie) in a tight finish, while Fort Apache (Aldo Domeyer) took 3rd.
Two other horses belonging to Tikanand Gujadhur and also trained by Brett Crawford took part in the same race - Royal Port Louis and Downing Seven. Both finished unplaced.
