Wilgerbosdrift’s successful resident stallion Flower Alley, who made such a good impression at Sunday’s Stallion Day, was represented by a smart looking 2yo winner in North America on Monday.
His daughter Flowers Vale won first time out at Mountaineer Casino Racetrack& Resort when scoring by an impressive seven and a half lengths over 900 metres.
Flowers Vale is out of the placed Unbridled’s Song mare Cottage Vale and is from the immediate family as young local sire Coup De Grace.
Flower Alley will also be strongly represented in Saturday’s G3 Calumet Farm Kentucky Turf Cup Stakes, where his offspring Bullards Alley and Crescent Drive are both contenders.
The in-form G1 Travers Stakes, recently represented by a trio of winners, is best known as the sire of champions I’ll Have Another, Lukes Alley and My Wandy’s Girl.
His first South African yearlings go on sale in 2018.
