Ascot Stud’s exciting young Galileo horse Global View, currently South Africa’s Leading First Crop Sire by prize money and individual winners, came up with his fifth first crop winner on Friday when his gelded son Global Ash made a winning debut at Fairview.
Bred by the Ascot Stud, the Yvette Bremner trained two-year-old raced keenly early on but overcame it when staying on strongly to record a one and a half length win over the 1400m trip of Friday’s race.
Global Ash was ridden to victory by Wayne Agrella.
Out of the stakes winning Ashaawes mare Scented Ash, Global Ash was a R120 000 buy from the 2019 KZN Yearling Sale.
Scented Ash has a full-brother (Lot 377) to Global Ash on offer at this year’s National Sale.
He joins the likes of East Cape Nursery 1-2 finishers Global Drummer and Fireview, Klawervlei Farm Sale Graduate race runner up Tanzanite Queen, and East Cape Fillies Nursery runner up Storyland as exciting early sorts to have emerged from Global View’s first crop of two-year-olds.
Winner of the G3 Generous Stakes at two and G2 American Turf Stakes at three, Global View shares his outstanding sire Galileo with such high-class stallions as Frankel, New Approach, Teofilo, Australia and the very promsing Gleneagles.
Bred on the same Galileo/Storm Cat cross as the aforementioned Gleneagles, Global View has 21 yearlings on offer at this year’s Emperors Palace National Yearling Sale.
