Friday feature race double for Ideal World

20th Apr 2019

Mauritzfontein’s increasingly successful resident stallion Ideal World had another day to remember on Good Friday when his progeny won a pair of feature races at Fairview.

Ideal World’s five-year-old daughter Onesie became her sire’s 20th individual stakes winner when she defied her starting price to win the Listed Glenlair Trophy by one and a half lengths.
Trained by her part-owner Jacques Strydom,  the Wilgerbosdrift & Mauritzfontein bred Onesie received a shrewd ride from jockey Greg Cheyne, who did well to get his mount to overcame a muddling pace and pick up the first feature race of her career.

Out of the Rich Man’s Gold mare Treaj Pots, Onesie was a R130 000 buy from the 2015 Val De Vie Yearling Sale, and Friday’s win took her earnings to over R370 000.

The 2019 Glenlair Trophy was a great race for Ideal World, who is not only the sire of the winner but also third place-getter Sheet Weaver, who ran a solid race, conceding his paternal half-sister Onesie no less than 8kgs in Friday’s R150 000 feature.

(Ideal World had three runners in the Glenlair Trophy, with fifth place finisher Multi Gold another by Ideal World).

Ideal World also made news on Friday when his progressive 3yo son In A Perfect World landed the Derby Plate impressively for trainer Alan Greeff and jockey Greg Cheyne. The Wilgerbosdrift & Mauritzfontein bred sophomore has now won three of only eight starts and is one of three Ideal World sons entered for the 2019 Listed East Cape Derby.

Out of a champion full-sister to outstanding sire Dansili, Ideal World has enjoyed a superb season in 2018-2019 with his star performers headed by 2019 G1 Sun Met hero Rainbow Bridge and 2019 G1 SA Derby victor Samurai Warrior.

The son of Kingmambo has 18 yearlings on the 2019 Emperors Palace National Yearling Sale, which gets underway this Wednesday.
