Drakenstein Stud’s champion sire, and increasingly successful broodmare sire, Trippi could be represented in the 2017 143rd Longines Kentucky Oaks.
The son of End Sweep is broodmare sire of the very promising filly Miss Sunset, a winner of three of her four starts to date, including the Sweet Life Stakes and the Generous Portion Stakes.
The Jeff Bonde trained filly is out of the Trippi mare Tuscan Sunset, who won three of just seven outings.
Trippi, who is damsire of former US star and dual G1 winner Liam’s Map, is also broodmare sire of the very promising South African two-year-old Tribal Force, who has been entered in the Listed Storm Bird Stakes on March 11th.
South Africa’s reigning champion sire, Trippi is enjoying another cracking season, with his top representatives including G2 Selangor Cup winner, and G1 Cape Guineas runner up Gold Standard, G2 Cartier Sceptre Stakes/CTS Sprint winner Live Life, and top sprinter Trip To Heaven.
The latter has won three of four outings this season and last time out finished a close second to stable mate Carry On Alice in the G1 Betting World Cape Flying Championship.
Sire of more than 120 stakes horses to date, Trippi has one lot on offer at the March Yearling Sale – a half-sister to 3 winners, this filly is out of a four time winning daughter of champion sire Western Winter and G1 winner As Ever (Lot 155).
