Trippi, South Africa’s reigning champion sire, was represented by his 66th individual stakes winner this weekend when his son Fifty Cents landed the Listed Grand Foods Jet Master Stakes at Kenilworth on Saturday.
Bred by Drakenstein Stud, Fifty Cents was partnered to victory in the 1600m feature by Anthony Andrews.
One of four winners on the day for trainer Justin Snaith, Fifty Cents’ victory on Saturday was his fourth win to date. The consistent gelding is yet to finish unplaced from 12 career outings and Saturday’s win pushed his earnings to well over R280 000.
His sire will be represented by former G2 Cape Merchants hero Triptique in Saturday’s Listed Southeaster Sprint.
Champion Sire in South Africa last season, Trippi has over 120 stakes horses to his credit thus far.
The son of End Sweep is enjoying another excellent season in 2016-2017 thus far, with his top representatives including top sprinter Trip To Heaven, as well as G2 Selangor Cup winner Gold Standard.
The latter, who finished a cracking second in Saturday’s G1 Grand Parade Cape Guineas, is being aimed at the G1 Investec Cape Derby next year.
Trippi, also responsible for last week’s impressive 2yo winner Punta Cana, has 14 quality lots on offer at January’s Cape Premier Yearling Sale.
Trippi’s CPYS draft includes a colt out of a G2 winning daughter of Dynasty (Lot 32), a colt out of the Australian bred Fillies Guineas runner up Generous Anna (Lot 69), a filly out of Rock Of Gibraltar’s classic winning daughter Gibraltar Blue (Lot 70), a colt out of G1 SA Fillies Classic winner Spiced Gold (Lot 192) and a full brother to the useful filly California Girl (Lot 209).
