Drakenstein Stud’s leading young sire What A Winter was represented by his second G3 Cape Of Good Hope Nursery winner, in as many crops, when his talented 2yo daughter Clouds Unfold downed some talented two-year-old males to win Saturday’s Kenilworth feature by three lengths going away.
Bred and owned by Drakenstein, Clouds Unfold has now won three of her four outings, with Saturday’s G3 victory pushing her earnings to over R230 000.
The Candice Bass-Robinson trained filly, who was produced by the Montjeu mare Montelissima, is regarded as a potential Cape Fillies Guineas contender for next season.
What A Winter enjoyed a pair of Nursery winners in his first crop, with Dutch Philip (Cape Of Good Hope Nursery) and Magical Wonderland (Kenilworth Fillies Nursery) both tasting success in the Cape 2yo features last season.
Clouds Unfold was one of a pair of two-year-old winners for What A Winter this weekend. The multiple sprint champion was also responsible for Adriano’s Triumph, who broke his maiden over 1200m at Fairview on Friday for log leading trainer Justin Snaith.
Bred by Boland Stud, the gelded Adriano’s Triumph had been fourth at his previous appearance.
What A Winter, himself a four time G1 winner and triple Equus Champion, has now been represented by eight two-year-old winners this season including impressive debut winner Robberg Express.
Also responsible for recent G1 South African Fillies Sprint second Magical Wonderland and this season’s Kuda Sprint hero Agent Of Fortune, What A Winter is currently well clear on South Africa’s Leading Second Crop Sires List.
The champion has six yearlings on offer at next month’s KZN Yearling Sale including a filly (Lot 27) who is from the same family as European champion Esoterique.
