Hat Puntano and Empress Club have been the best two Argentinian imports to race in South Africa.

Imagine a race between the two!

Empress Club was one of the best a small filly but could fill a racetrack.

I remember being at an awards dinner when Laurie Jaffee said she was named after a gentleman’s club in London

I thought that she was named after her "clubbed" foot? If memory serves me correct she was a specimen but overlooked by many because of that clubbed foot. I could be wrong but that sticks in my mind.

I think that a match race between Empress Club and Hat Puntano would be much closer than most people think.

I reckon that the Hat would only win by 2 or 3 lengths.

Bokked, methinks you are drinking too much home brew !! Is Hat Puntano a race horse? Must be out the Azzman's yard... he can talk a horse up like no other.

No, Sir, not much of a drinker.

Look, I knew that most people would not agree with my assessment of Hat Puntano only winning by 2-3 lengths in a match race with Empress Club. But those people, like yourself, who espouse Hat Puntano winning by 6 or 7 lengths or more forget how good Empress Club was.

But as you say, mate, the Hat is not a racehorse - he is a machine. I totally agree with you, Sir!

You probably made some good money when he won his only race here at 10-1,so you might be a bit biased.
His other 8 races here he only got one place,a 3rd.
His other races went like this....
last
4th to last
2nd to last
last
2nd to last
3rd to last
2nd to last.

Bokked, I lost a few years of my life trying to figure out how you reached the conclusions you did from Magi's post. Either you are a troll or not the brightest. Suspect it is not the latter.

I think that all true horse people know that Hat Puntano has a plethora of injury problems and that he won Grade 1 races on practically three legs. Let me just say that again, Hat Puntano trounced the opposition in Grade 1’s on THREE LEGS

Not many horses can even run on three legs. Some hobble uncomfortably, some even fall over, but the Hat could fly. That’s why astute horse people like Magi and I know him to be much more than just a racehorse...

Won the Emperors Palace Charity Mile GRADE 2 in this country.
In the grade 1's he ran here he finished closer to last than first.
He did well in Brazil but it's hard to line up that form to ours.
