More success for Warm White Night
Klawervlei Stud’s well performed young sire Warm White Night has made the perfect start to his stud career. And the former sprint star was represented by a third first crop winner at Turffontein on Saturday, quickly followed by a fourth at the Vaal three days later!
Warm White Night’s handsome son Kemal Kavur, who had finished a smart second first time out, went one better when running on strongly to land a maiden juvenile plate over 1450m by three parts of a length and looks a colt destined for better things.
Bred by Ambiance Stud, Kemal Kavur is owned by Markus and Ingrid Jooste and cost R200 000 at last year’s National Yearling Sale. He is out of the National Emblem mare Savoir Faire, an unplaced half sister to Cordocelli, a multiple Gr1 winner who won no fewer than 16 races during his illustrious career.
Second Warm White Night son to score was the Klawervlei bred Night March who broke his maiden at the third time of asking on Tuesday. The St John Gray trained colt made all to win by a cosy length over 1200 metres, leaving a well bred field of juveniles in his wake. A R360 000 purchase from last year’s Emperors Palace Ready To Run Sale, Night March is out of the Encosta De Lago mare Costilla.
Warm White Night, whose earlier winners include the debut scorers Harlem Shake and Miss Nightingale, currently ranks as South Africa’s leading first crop sire-both by stakes and by winners. He is also currently in the top ten on the leading 2yo sires list, above such well established stallions as Kahal, Jay Peg and his own sire, Western Winter.
To date, Warm White Night has been represented by nine first crop runners, of whom six have either won or finished in the money, and he looks a young sire going places.
The son of triple Champion sire Western Winter certainly proved popular when his first crop went through the ring in 2014 – with Warm White Night’s first youngsters fetching up to R1.1 million.
The Highlands Farm bred Warm White Night was a top class racehorse, winning seven times including the G1 Cape Flying Championship and G1 Gold Medallion. In total, he won or placed in seven graded races and clearly rated amongst the best of his generation.
This exciting young stallion is represented on both the March Yearling Sale and National Yearling Sale.
Warm White Night’s 21 strong draft on this week’s March Sale includes a filly from the family of champion filly Star Effort (Lot 67), a colt bred on similar lines to the wonderful siblings Brutal Force, Nania and Red (Lot 83) and a half sister to this season’s top class 2yo Seventh Plain (Lot 109).
His sole lot on sale at next month’s National Sale is a half sister to former classy two year old Another Idea. This filly (Lot 256) hails from the wonderful Song Of Peace family which produced the Western Winter sired champion Ice Cube.
