The Alchemy’s resident sire Where’s That Tiger got on the winners board in Singapore on Sunday when his son Singsurat picked up the Kranji Stakes.
A four-year-old gelding, Singsurat was making it win number four, when running on strongly to land the 1800m contest at Kranji –and provided apprentice Mohd Firdaus with one leg of a hatrick.
In the process, Firdaus vaulted to top place on the Singapore jockeys log.
Singsurat’s sire Where’s That Tiger has a superb strike rate in South Africa. The son of super-sire Storm Cat has been represented by just nine runners in this country –six of which have won and two of which are black type winners. Where’s That Tiger’s local performers include the brilliant but ill-fated filly Tiger Quest, winner of the Listed Gardenia Handicap and runner up in the G2 SA Fillies Nursery and G3 Racing Association Handicap hero Supertube.
Former G3 UAE 2000 Guineas runner up Where’s That Tiger’s sire Storm Cat has been a superb sire of sires, with his outstanding sire sons including Giant’s Causeway, Hennessy, Stormy Atlantic, Harlan, Tale Of The Cat, Storm Boot, Tiger Ridge, and Forest Wildcat. Leading representatives of the Storm Cat male line in South Africa include the likes of Black Minnaloushe and Var.
Where’s That Tiger’s close relatives Brave Tin Soldier and G1 Kentucky Derby winner Fusaichi Pegasus have both been in the news recently –Brave Tin Soldier as the sire of G1 Premier’s Champion Stakes winner Rabada and Fusaichi Pegasus as the damsire of Silver Mountain –a dominant favourite for Saturday’s Gr1 World Sports Betting Cape Fillies Guineas.
Another high class member of this family is last year’s G1 Starlet Stakes winner Street Fancy –a daughter of Street Sense whose third dam is Angel Fever (Where’s That Tiger’s second dam).
Where’s That Tiger’s first local crop arrived to rave reviews in 2015.
