San Louis Room - Excelsior Guesthouse

Bred and owned by Margaret de Wet at Excelsior, San Louis was ill-fated to an early death due to an unknown illness. Freddie's brother, Stephen, lovingly nursed him back to health and San Louis's full recovery saw him winning four races to qualify for the Guineas. In 1981 San Louis won the prestigious 1600m Richelieu Guineas.
