Ipi Tombe Challenge triumph for Gimmethegreenlight

27th Nov 2022

Varsfontein Stud’s champion resident sire Gimmethegreenlight looks to have a top-class filly to his name in the form of Gimme A Shot.
The latter showed her class when running out an impressive winner of the G2 Betway Ipi Tombe Challenge (1600m) run at Turffontein on Saturday.
Trained by Michael and Adam Azzie, three-year-old Gimme A Shot had finished runner up in the G2 Prosport International Debutante at two, before finishing third in both the G2 Topbet Joburg Spring F and M Challenge and G3 HSH Princess Charlene Starling Stakes this season.
Gimme A Shot, however, bounced back from these defeats when she romped home, under JP Van Der Merwe, to claim the 2022 Ipi Tombe Challenge by three and a half lengths.
Among the Kevin Soal bred and owned filly’s beaten rivals on Saturday were graded stakes winners Under Your Spell, Homely Girl, Miss Daisy, and Gilded Butterfly.
Out of the Rakeen mare Shot In The Dark, Gimme A Shot has now won twice from five starts and has already earned R321 250 in prize money.
Gimme A Shot is the 47th stakes winner for Gimmethegreenlight, whose son Shoemaker finished a close second in Saturday’s G2 Jonsson Workwear Dingaans, when beaten just a length by the victorious Union Square.
Another son of Gimmethegreenlight, Great Affair, ran third in Saturday’s Listed Racehorse Owners Association Stayers.
