When Akinfeet was named South Africa’s Broodmare of the Year for 2012-2013, she became the third Lammerskraal based mare to win this prestigious title.
The daughter of Fort Wood had been preceded by Turf Blazer and Fashing – interestingly both mares being daughters of the great sire and broodmare sire Dancing Champ.
Turf Blazer, Broodmare of the Year in 2001, produced the graded stakes winners Citius (Gr2 Mondi Sprint) and Weston Blaze (Gr2 Golden Horseshoe), while Fashing is the dam of the great Yard-Arm (Horse of the Year) and three other black type performers.
Fashing, was also twice named the Cape Broodmare of the Year, while champion sprinter, Enchantress, was a fellow Cape Broodmare of the Year winner.
Akinfeet, dam of star colt Capetown Noir and the Gr3 winner Across The Ice, is clearly in illustrious company!
