More broodmare sire success for Trippi

17th Sep 2018

Trippi, South Africa’s Champion Sire of 2015-2016, is enjoying increasing success as a broodmare sire, and he was represented by his 14th black type winner as a broodmare sire when Kim K (by Will Take Charge) captured the Barretts Debutante Stakes at Los Alamitos on Saturday.

From the first crop of her sire, the 2yo Kim K dropped back to third on the rail as favored Square Peggy and Naughty Tiger went on the attack to her outside. But the Peter Miller-trained filly never lost contact with her rivals and they never cleared. With an unimpeded lane on the rail under jockey Heriberto Figueroa, Kim K re-rallied and pulled away to win by three lengths over Square Peggy.

Now a stakes winner from just 2 starts, Kim K is the first stakes winner produced by Trippi mare Trip For A.J. –a former Calder Oaks winner who earned more than $600 000 in prize money.

Kim K (whose sire is by Unbridled’s Song) is bred on a similar Unbridled’s Song/Trippi cross to Liam’s Map.

Other high class stakes winners produced by daughters of Trippi include Lane’s End sire and Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile hero Liam’s Map, G3 Iroquis Stakes winning sire Not This Time, Japanese G3 winner Aster Pegasus and brilliant racemare Miss Sunset.

The latter, a winner of ten of 18 outings, has eight stakes victories to her name including the G2 Raven Run Stakes.

Trippi’s outstanding producer and G3 winning daughter Miss Macy Sue provided her champion sire with more positive press when her filly by Tapit made $1.4 million at the 2018 Keeneland September Yearling Sale.

Trippi, who enjoyed a South African double over the weekend courtesy of , has a very strong crop of 3yos representing him in 2018-2019. His sophomores this season include G1 Thekwini Stakes runner up Railtrip, brilliant recent G3 Spring Spree Stakes winner Chimichuri Run, promising recent winner Trip To The Sky, and unbeaten Perfect Promise Sprint winner Lesedi La Rona.

The son of End Sweep has a single lot on sale at the 2018 Ready To Run Sale –a half-brother to new sire and multiple G1 winner Rabada (Lot 85).
