Moutonshoek’s successful resident sire Mambo In Seattle looks to have a top class colt on his hands in the form of Majestic Mambo.
The latter made it three wins from as many outings when romping to a two and a quarter length win in the Listed Sea Cottage Stakes at Turffontein on Sunday and Majestic Mambo looks something very special in the making.
Trained by Paul Peter, and bred by Moutonshoek, Majestic Mambo made some promising three-year-olds look ordinary as he strolled home to account for the well bred Royal Crusade as he liked, with the Street Cry gelding Alshibaa back in third place.
Majestic Mambo, one of two feature race winners on the day for jockey Anthony Delpech, had previously won on debut by 5.5 lengths and then followed up with a four length win over 1800m.
The colt, who appears bound for the classics, has thus won all three starts by an aggregate of more than 11 lengths.
Out of the Al Mufti mare Regal Classic, Majestic Mambo is bred on the same Mambo In Seattle/Al Mufti cross as Golden Slipper winner Desert Rhythm and G3 Caradoc Gold Cup hero Fortune Fella. Michaelmas Handicap hero Mr O’Neill is another bred on this cross –with Al Mufti himself being a close relative of Mambo In Seattle himself.
Mambo In Seattle, also sire of exported dual G1 winner Same Jurisdiction, has been represented by at least one stakes winner in each his first crops to race, with other notable stakes winners including G3 Byerley Turk hero Mambo Mime and smart filly Mambonick.
The three parts brother to outstanding US sire Lemon Drop Kid (sire of 2017 G1 winners Beach Patrol and Romantic Vision) looks on course for an exciting season ahead!
