Classy mares in foal to champion sprinter
Some of Lammerskraal’s very top mares have been covered and are safely in foal to Drakenstein Stud’s champion sprinter What A Winter.
Among the mares in foal to the mighty son of former Lammerskraal star sire Western Winter are Adobe Pink, her half sister Chambre and the outstanding broodmare Nacarat.
Adobe Pink, a daughter of Go Deputy and the aforementioned Nacarat, was a top class racemare who reeled off a hatrick of feature race wins during her illustrious career. One of the finest staying mares of her generation, Adobe Pink (whose victories included the Listed East Coast Handicap) is carrying her first foal, and looks an exciting addition to Lammerskraal’s already top class band of broodmares.
Half sister Chambre is one of nine winners for her exceptional dam Nacarat. The latter, a Pas De Quoi half sister to Gr1 winner Set Afire, is one of the most successful South African broodmares of recent years. Nacarat’s offspring not only include the exceptional Grade 1 performers Nania and Red Ray, but stakes performers Adobe Pink, Valor Red and Vermilion. Nacarat’s latest star performer is Brutal Force, pictured, winner of the recent R1 million Cape Thoroughbred Sales race.
What A Winter was a truly exceptional sprinter, who won three Equus Awards and who was South Africa’s Champion Sprinter in both 2012 and 2013. The star sprinter won 15 races and over R3.2 million in stakes, with his wins included the Gr1 Cape Flying Championship in both 2011 and 2013. He later added a score in the Gr1 Computaform Sprint to his tally.
By a triple champion sire, the royally bred What A Winter, a half brother to ill fated champ What A Question, is from the same female line as legendary stallions Hyperion, Pharamond II and Sir Tristram – to name but three.
