Drakenstein Stud’s proven G1 sire Duke Of Marmalade has sired some outstanding fillies and mares, and the five time G1 winner, and Cartier Champion, looks to have produced another potentially high-class filly in the form of Our Prized Jewel.
The latter justified 9-10 favouritism when making a winning debut over 1200m at Kenilworth in the style of a well above average filly.
Trained by Brett Crawford, the Ridgemont Highlands bred and owned Our Prized Jewel showed her class when storming home, under Anton Marcus, to win first-time out by a length and three-quarters, and this blue blooded filly looks an exciting future prospect.
Tuesday’s debut winner is one of several classy sorts to have emerged from Duke Of Marmalade’s second South African crop, with others including G3 Gauteng Tourism Authority Magnolia Handicap winner True To Life, and smart filly Laurentina.
Sire of more than 70 stakes horses the world over, Duke Of Marmalade has three lots on Thursday’s Cape Premier Yearling Sale.
