The Klawervlei Stud based Warm White Night was represented by his fifth individual first crop winner this week, when daughter Red Hot Lady won a good race over 1400m at Kenilworth on Wednesday.
The Normandy Stud bred filly, who had finished a pleasing third on debut, was sent out favourite to land the odds in a maiden juvenile plate over 1400m at Kenilworth on Wednesday, and she duly obliged for trainer Joey Ramsden.
Red Hot Lady, who is owned by Messrs Braun, Domingo, Mac Pherson, Mohamed, Shapiro, Thurling and Van Cuyck, was an R80 000 buy from last year’s March Yearling Sale. She is out of the winning Model Man mare True Red, a half sister to multiple G1 winner Set Afire (whom like Warm White Night is by Western Winter).
Red Hot Lady’s sire Warm White Night has certainly made the perfect start to his stud career. To date, the son of Western Winter has been represented by 11 runners, of which seven have won or finished in the money.
One of 19 individual G1 winners by the now deceased champion sire Western Winter, Warm White Night, is a half brother to eight winners including former G1 SA Fillies Sprint second Vogue, whose daughter Whatalady (by Jet Master) has won her last four races in a row including the G3 Acacia Handicap.
His already impressive start could well improve still further this weekend, with the Warm White Night sired pair Miss Nightingale and Night March set to contest the King’s Pact Stakes and G3 Protea Stakes respectively.
Warm White Night, currently South Africa’s leading first crop sire, also enjoyed success at the recent March Yearling Sale, where he was the sales’ leading sire by aggregate.
