PHUMELELA MEDIA RELEASE
SUBJECT: Ormond Ferraris Oaks Trial
DATE: 05 February 2020
RELEASED BY: Phumelela Gaming


One of South Africa’s greatest trainers, Ormond Ferraris, will be honoured on Saturday 14 March when the Listed Ormond Ferraris Oaks Trial will be run over 2000m at Turffontein.
The race has been named after him in recognition of his incredible achievements as a trainer over so many decades.
Ferraris took out his trainer’s licence in 1952 and finally retired in May last year. There is hardly a race in this country he has not won but he had particular success with the SA Oaks and SA Derby. He won the Oaks 10 times and the Derby eight times.
In 2016 Ferraris trained his 2500th winner when Romany Prince won the Listed Drum Star Handicap.
His last SA Oaks winner was Cherry On The Top in 2013. Owned by Bridget Oppenheimer, this daughter of Tiger Ridge scooped the Wilgerbosdrift Triple Tiara with that victory.

Well deserved for a living legend. And there will be continuity with the race being an Oaks Trial.
Does the Syd Laird Memorial race still exist, likewise the Henry Eatwell Memorial, the
Geo Azzie Memorial and the Buddy Maroun Memorial.
Anyone knows?
