Justin Snaith popped the Mumm bottle cork to much applause at the end of the Gala event hosted by Clyde Basel and Gareth Flusk at Grandwest in Cape Town but one is never sure if he was thrilled about his favourites 7 draw. A number he selected from the array of bottles on the table. 

The visuals showed that he was 'OK' with the middle draw, mind you it could have been worse for the Cape champion. Oh Susanna drew a nice 5 with Rainbow Bridge in likely the best of the positions, he drew a lovely 2, just one of the fence. The feed was apparently taken by Hong Kong as well, who were in the middle of their Happy Valley meeting.

LEGAL EAGLE the multiple horse of the year grew a wideist 11 but he does have the champion jockey onboard. 

It was also announced that Usain Bolt, the chief entertainment office of G. H Mumm will be at the Met again this year. Last year he celebrated with the Snaith, as the first 3yo filly in history, Oh Susanna, won the event.
