The first foals of Cheveley Stud’s well performed and blue blooded young sire Wylie Hall have already made a cracking impression on the breeders lucky enough to have them.
Lammerskraal’s outstanding crop of foals this year include this striking filly out of the Western Winter mare Savannah Air.
The latter is out of the G3 Elliodor mare Burnt Savannah –a full sister to G3 Summerveld Stakes winner Ivor Thirst and a half sister to G2 November Handicap winner Likeithot (by Rakeen).
Cheveley’s Wylie Hall foals include this attractive colt out of the winning Rambo Dancer mare Ballerina, whose four winning offspring include five time winner and Listed Southeaster Sprint third Monsieur Dupont. From the great Sister Sublime family, Ballerina herself is a half sister to former Listed Gosforth Park 4-Y-O C&G Stakes winner Choreographer.
The beautifully bred Fort Wood mare Kimberley Club has a very appealing Wylie Hall filly foal at foot.
Kimberley Club herself is not only a daughter of a Champion Sire and last season’s Champion Broodmare Sire but is out of Elliodor’s five time stakes winning daughter Oceana –a half sister to former Equus Champion 2YO and dual G1 winner Argonaut as well as former G1 SA Fillies Guineas winner Finest View (Fine Edge).
Cheveley also have a fine looking filly out of the Argonaut mare Dien Te Garde (pictured in title). This filly is a wonderful example of the quality that Wylie Hall is throwing –and, remarkably, is the first foal of the mare herself.
Wylie Hall, whose six career wins included both the G1 President’s Champions Challenge and the classic G1 SA Derby, is a son of triple Australian Champion Sire Redoute’s Choice, sire of no fewer than 28 G1 winners, and counting!
Redoute’s Choice has established himself as an outstanding sire of sires, with his top class sire sons including Snitzel (one of Australia’s leading sires), Not A Single Doubt (the leading active sire in Australia last season), and proven G1 producer Stratum.
One of the top performers of his generation, Wylie Hall (who also finished first past the post in the 2014 G1 Vodacom Durban July) won or placed in no fewer than ten feature races and earned over R3 million in prize money. Among the numerous top class performers beaten by Wylie Hall are the following champions/G1 winners –Majmu (by Redoute’s Choice), Futura, In The Fast Lane, Capetown Noir, Captain America, Heavy Metal, King Of Pain, Cherry On The Top, Louis The King, The Hangman, Wild One and Yorker.
Wylie Hall will once again stand for a fee of R20 000 this season –and, if the quality of his first foals are anything to go by, this is looks a great bargain!
