Another winner for promising Force
Sorrento Stud’s well bred young stallion, Royal Air Force, has made a bright start to his stud career – despite not being afforded the best opportunities.
The well bred son of Jet Master had another winner from his diminutive first crop when his 3yo daughter Chanukah scorched her opposition to win by 2.75 lengths at just the second time of asking.
Bred by Sorrento, Chanukah was produced by the Phantom Earl mare Faithful Spirit.
Her sire, Royal Air Force, was a top-class and versatile horse, who won from 1000-2000m.
He scored the biggest win of his career when accounted for a top-class field in the 2007 Gr2 Astrapak 1900.
He has already been represented by a pair of talented fillies in feature race contender Coco, and impressive recent winner Petty Office, and Royal Air Force is clearly a stallion with considerable potential. From just seven runners, Royal Air Force has been represented by four runners who have either won or finished in the money.
By six times champion sire Jet Master, Royal Air Force is a half-brother to Equus Champion, and Grade One producer, Imperious Sue.
This is also the family of ill-fated champion, and successful sire, Victory Moon, as well as current talented Cape performer, Big Cat.
Royal Air Force, whose first crop consist of just ten registered foals, stands for a fee of R10 000.
