South Africa, May 18 – The 2015 Racing Association Highveld Feature Season Awards in South Africa were held last Saturday evening at Turffontein Racecourse with a number of Australian bred horses featuring prominently headed by the Newhaven Park bred and sold Redoute’s Choice stallion Wylie Hall, who was Champion Older Horse, Champion Middle Distance Horse and Horse of the Season.

Prepared by Weiho Marwing for Michael Leaf, five year-old Wylie Hall has been performing at the top level since his three year-old days when he won the Group I South African Derby and claimed another big Group I win this season when taking out the President’s Champions Challenge.
