Bred and owned by Klawervlei, the consistent Polar Trip bolted home to break her maiden by nearly seven lengths over 1000m. The Garth Puller trained three-year-old has been the sole of consistency thus far, and has now won or placed in four of her six outings.
Polar Trip’s paternal half-sister Real Princess has long been held in high regard by trainer Dean Kannemeyer. The 3yo, a R2.7 million buy at the 2013 Cape Premier Yearling Sale (Book 1), made it four wins from just seven outings when romping home to land a pinnacle stakes over 1100m on Wednesday, to score by nearly four lengths over the talented Garibondy. Also bred by Klawervlei, the Khaya Stables owned filly looks a sprinter of real talent and Real Princess looks a filly of feature race potential.
Trippi, whose sire End Sweep is the broodmare sire of impressive G2 Queen Mary Stakes winner Acapulco, has enjoyed another superb season in 2014-2015, highlighted by the deeds of his dual Grade One winning daughter Inara.
He has two lots on offer at Sunday’s Klawervlei Farm Sale – a filly from the world class family responsible for star Aussie 2yo Pride Of Dubai as well as world leading sires Invincible Spirit and Kodiac (Lot 35) and a filly out of a stakes placed Gone West mare, from the family of leading sires Encosta De Lago, Flying Spur, Holy Roman Emperor and Night Shift.
Trippi also has a filly on offer at next month’s Suncoast KZN Yearling Sale – catalogued as lot 72, this filly is out of a stakes placed daughter of champion US sire Thunder Gulch, and her half sister is the high class G3 performer Murmuring Sky.
