Debut winner for Gimmethegreenlight

6th Mar 2018

Varsfontein Stud’s red hot sire Gimmethegreenlight, fresh off enjoying a weekend double, was once again to the fore at the Vaal on Tuesday.

Gimme Six

This time it was thanks to Gimmethegreenlight’s two-year-old son Green Haze, who made a flashy, winning debut for trainer Alec Laird over 1000 metres.
Ridden by Keagan De Melo, Green Haze ran on strongly to best Australian bred, and favourite, Belton Road, by a length and a quarter.

Bred by Lammerskraal Stud, Green Haze was a R350 000 buy from the 2017 National Yearling Sale. A half-brother to Green Haze, by Soft Falling Rain, is on offer at the 2018 National Sale.

The third juvenile winner for Gimmethegreenlight this season, Green Haze was produced by the winning Western Winter mare Mizzen Mast.

Gimmethegreenlight, a son of outstanding shuttle sire More Than Ready, has made a superb start to his stud career.

Green Pepper

His first crop to race produced six stakes winners, headed by graded stakes winners Gunner, Gimme Six, Hack Green and Green Pepper, while Gimmethegreenlight’s second crop, now three, include G3 Tony Ruffel Stakes winner Surcharge,  G1 Majorca Stakes third Rose In Bloom, East Cape champion Queen Forever, and G2 SA Fillies Nursery heroine Green Plains.

The former L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate will be represented by Frederico’s Dream in Saturday’s Listed Bauhinia Handicap at Turffontein.

Gimmethegreenlight has 13 lots on the April Yearling Sale and a further 23 yearlings at the 2018 Emperors Palace National Yearling Sale in Germiston.
