One of the most brilliant fillies to race in South Africa over the past few years is former Suncoast KZN Yearling Sale graduate Same Jurisdiction.
Bred by Klawervlei Stud (and pinhooked by Duncan Barry and John Gatt for R25 000 at the 2012 Cape Mare & Weanling Sale), Same Jurisdiction has since been exported and is expected to continue her career overseas later this year.
The filly leaves South African shores having won or placed in 12 of 14 outings and earned R2 253 425 in prize money. This is certainly a handsome return on the R270 000 spent to acquire Same Jurisdiction at the 2013 Suncoast KZN Yearling Sale!
Same Jurisdiction, who is from the first crop of her sire Mambo In Seattle, made headlines early on in her career.
The Duncan Howells trained filly, who raced in South Africa for owners Drakenstein Stud, Duncan Howells, Dr Ralph Katzwinkel, and Mr L Vermaak and Mrs Powell, showed promise when winning three of her four outings at two –with her victories including the KZN Yearling Sale Million and G1 Thekwini Stakes. This campaign saw Same Jurisdiction garner a nomination for the title of Equus Champion 2YO Filly.
She trained on well to win or place in four graded races at three, when her wins included a victory over a star studded field in the 2015 G1 Jonsson Workwear Garden Province Stakes (Same Jurisdiction’s beaten rivals including four G1 winners, notably subsequent G1 J&B Met winner Smart Call, as well as the champions Carry On Alice and Hammie’s Hooker). In a brief career at four, Same Jurisdiction won or placed in four outings, with her top performances including a runner up finish in the G1 Klawervlei Majorca Stakes.
Same Jurisdiction is out of the winning Captain Al mare Diana De Carlo, whose dam, Silk Stalkings won four times including the Flamboyant Stakes (a race Same Jurisdiction herself won in 2015!).
Her promising sire Mambo In Seattle (whose sons Mambo Mime and Saratoga Dancer both line up in the 2016 Vodacom Durban July), is once again well represented at this year’s Sibaya KZN Yearling Sale, on June 30th and July 1st.
The son of Kingmambo has 11 lots on offer at this year’s sale, including a three parts brother to G1 Allan Robertson Championship runner and 2016 KZN Million hope Poster Girl (Lot 79), a three parts brother to stakes 2yo Jo Malone (Lot 135), a colt from the same family as champion filly Vesta (Lot 271), and a colt whose dam is a three parts sister to champion and sire Argonaut (Lot 275).
