Monday double for What A Winter

23rd Feb 2021

Drakenstein Stud’s four time G1 winning stallion What A Winter has been in prolific form of late, with his progeny winning all over South Africa, and the multiple Equus Champion struck twice at Kenilworth on Monday afternoon.

What A Winter progeny won both the first and last races at Kenilworth on Monday, with the sire’s two-year-old daughter Jewel Of Doha victorious in the first, and What A Winter’s son What A Man landing Monday’s eighth and final race.

The Glen Kotzen trained Jewel Of Doha became her sire’s fifth two-year-old winner this season thus far when victorious on Monday.
Under Grant Van Niekerk, the Klawervlei Stud bred Jewel Of Doha stayed on nicely to score by a length, having finished third to the very smart High Hosanna at her previous outing.

Out of the Duke Of Marmalade mare Marquesa Naranja, Jewel Of Doha was a R250 000 buy from the 2020 Cape Premier Yearling Sale.

What A Winter, who currently heads South Africa’s Leading Sires of 2YOs premiership, also enjoyed success when his Piet Steyn trained son What A Man stayed on gamely to score, by just under half a length, over 1000m.

Bred by Nadeson Park Stud, the gelded What A Man was ridden to victory by Grant Behr.

The inform What A Winter went close to having a treble on Monday, with his daughter Winter Furi finishing a close second in Kenilworth’s sixth race.

What A Winter, who has two runners apiece in both Saturday’s G3 Kenilworth Fillies Nursery and G3 Cape Of Good Hope Nursery, has 11 lots on Sunday’s Cape Yearling Sale, and a further 15 yearlings on offer at March’s Cape Premier Yearling Sale.
