Fleet Feet: Campbell’s Equine Namesake Wins In South Africa

Cot Campbell is well-known throughout the racing world as an industry leader and president of Dogwood Stables. However, people are probably unaware that he's also a winner in South Africa.

To clarify, the 2-year-old Thoroughbred colt, Cot Campbell, is a winner in South Africa.

According to the Aiken Standard, the equine Cot Campbell captured a six-furlong contest at Kenilworth Race Course July 25. It was the third career start for the son of Trippi, one of the leading sires in South Africa and a former Dogwood Stable colorbearer. During his racing career, Trippi won the G2 Tom Fool, G2 Riva Ridge and G3 Swale Stakes.

The equine Cot Campbell was bred by Team Valor International and Drakenstein Stud. They own the colt in partnership with Anant and Vanashree Singh.

“I am very pleased that he seems to be a pretty good horse,” the human Cot Campbell told the Standard. “He won in the easiest kind of way, with the rider practically pulling him up at the finish line. It was a very impressive performance.”

“It was great fun to hear the South African announcer screaming out, ‘Cot Campbell,' ” he said. “I'm hoping and praying that the horse will come over here (to America) to run, but I doubt that will ever happen.”
