Klawervlei’s exciting young sire Seventh Rock has some exceptionally promising three-year-olds to his credit this season.
Among them is Equus Champion 2YO Colt of last season Seventh Plain (currently the log leader for the 2016 CTS $1 million race), the very speedy Rock On Baby –winner of two of three starts to date, and G3 Cape Of Good Hope Nursery runner up The Stone Thrower.
Another sophomore sired by Seventh Rock to catch the eye recently is the beautifully bred filly Crystal Glamour.
The latter made a stunning winning debut for trainer Gary Alexander and owner Mr D Jansen Van Rensburg when scoring by two and a half lengths over 1200m at Turffontein on Saturday.
Bred by the Ascot Stud, Crystal Glamour looks a really smart filly in the making and she should be followed!
Her G1 winning sire Seventh Rock has made the perfect start to his stud career. The son of Rock Of Gibraltar has a pair of G1 winners (Guiness and Seventh Plain) in each of his first two crops to race, and he looks to be a young sire of immense promise.
Seventh Rock, whose immediate relatives include former Equus Champion Harry’s Son set to enjoy another overseas campaign next year, stands for a 2015 stud fee of R40 000.
