Mauritzfontein’s successful sire Ideal World has enjoyed a tremendous start to the 2018-2019 seasons, with his notable runners thus far including unbeaten G3 World Sports Betting Matchem Stakes winner Rainbow Bridge.
The son of Kingmambo was back in the news this past weekend, when his winners included a smart first timer on Friday.
His gelded 3yo son In A Perfect World justified favouritism when powering home to make a winning debut over 1200m for trainer Alan Greeff and jockey Greg Cheyne. Despite running green in the race, the Wilgerbosdrift & Mauritzfontein bred gelding produced an impressive turn of foot in the closing stages to mow down his rivals and get up to win by a head –going away.
Out of the Not For Sale mare Quintessential, In A Perfect World was one of two winners over the weekend for Ideal World. The latter was also responsible for Josephine Baker who romped home to shed her maiden by two and three quarter lengths over 2000m at Greyville on Sunday for trainer Dean Kannemeyer and jockey Keagan De Melo.
Ideal World, whose previous stars include Equus Champions Smart Call and Hermoso Mundo, has some very exciting three-year-olds representing him this season.
The son of Breeders’ Cup champion Banks Hill has two daughters entered for 27th October’s G2 Western Cape Fillies Championship, in the form of Irridescence Stakes first and third Coral Bay and Helen’s Ideal respectively.
Closely related to pensioned champion sire Dansili, Ideal World has a single lot on sale at the 2018 CTS Ready To Run Sale.
