Highlands’ Farms Stud, part of Ridgemont,’s resident sire Pathfork has enjoyed a tremendous season with his 2yos in 2016-2017.
The champion son of Distorted Humor has a number of smart juveniles representing him this season, including debut feature race winner Precious Pansy, debut winners Holly’s Vision and Like Astair and the very impressive filly Twelve Oaks.
The latter made it two wins from just three outings when successful in a juvenile plate over 1000m at the Vaal on Thursday, where, despite conceding the runner up weight, Twelve Oaks went on to down G3 Pretty Polly Stakes runner up Celestina by
Trained, owned and bred by St John Gray, Twelve Oaks had previously won impressively on debut by four lengths before finishing sixth in the G2 SA Fillies Nursery on her only other appearance.
She has been entered in Saturday week’s G1 Allan Robertson Fillies Championship.
An unbeaten G1 winner and champion at two, Pathfork is the covering sire on one lot at the upcoming CTS Mares, Weanlings & Fillies For Stud Select Sale.
