crowned the champion two-year-old of 2001 after a string of feature races wins throughout
the Northern Hemisphere.
Tomorrow at a quiet
New South Wales provincial meeting at Gosford, Johannesburg will be stepping out on to an
Australian track for the first time.
But stop! Before you jump into your car and begin to head to
Gosford you should be aware this Johannesburg is not the multiple Group One winning son of
Hennessy, but rather a first starter by Charnwood Forest.
The gelding, who is trained by Albert Stapleford, will be
starting for the first time after two reasonable trial efforts.
Aaron Huke will be aboard the youngster in the Neild & Co
Two-Year-Old Maiden Plate, the second event of the afternoon.
Johannesburg will have twelve rivals for his first start,
three of them will also be facing the starter for the first time.
