Moutonshoek’s successful resident sire Mambo In Seattle looks have yet another top class filly on his hands in the form of promising 2yo Desert Rhythm.
The latter stamped herself as one of the leaders of her generation with an impressive win in the G2 Gold Circle Golden Slipper on Vodacom Durban July on Saturday.
It was a first graded victory for the progressive looking Desert Rhythm, who was always close to the pace before pulling away under jockey S’Manga Khumalo to post a one length win over the promising pair of Let It Flow and Tsessebe.
Trained by champion conditioner Sean Tarry, the Nutfield Stud bred Desert Rhythm (yet to finish out of the money) has now won three of seven outings and has already banked R563 250.
Inbred to Lassie Dear, she is bred on the same Mambo In Seattle/Al Mufti cross as G3 Caradoc Gold Cup winner Fortune Fella and a similar cross to Mambo’s outstanding millionaire daughter Same Jurisdiction (whose dam is by Al Mufti’s son Captain Al).
Mambo In Seattle, who is from the same family as Sunday’s impressive Queen’s Plate winner Holy Helena, is currently above such sires as Twice Over, Dynasty, Silvano and Trippi on the Leading Sires of 2YOS List.
A brother in blood to outstanding sire Lemon Drop Kid and out of a full-sister to dual US champion sire A P Indy, Mambo In Seattle has now been represented by stakes horses in every crop he has produced since retiring to stud.
