Now a 10 time winner, from 18 races, Miss Sunset was backed into odds-on returning to California-bred company here, the bay broke well and tracked the speed of long-shot Dis Smart Cat from second through fractions of :22.56 and :45.94. Taking a bit longer than expected to put that foe away while confidently handled by Mike Smith, she surged to the front at the sixteenth pole and edged clear late to score by a length and a half.

Runner up in the 2018 G1 Madison Stakes and winner of the 2017 G2 Raven Run Stakes, Miss Sunset (by Into Mischief) has banked more than $870 000 in stakes.

South Africa’s Champion Sire of 2015-2016, Trippi is fast making his mark as a broodmare sire and is also damsire of US graded stakes winners Liam’s Map, Not This Time and Multiplier.

The G1 winning son of End Sweep has enjoyed consistent high level success since relocating to South Africa, with Trippi represented by top flight runners in each of his local racing crops. His best offspring, to date, include G1 SA Classic hero Lobo’s Legend, five time G1 winner Inara, Equus Champion Hammie’s Hooker, G1 Premier’s Champions Challenge star Deo Juvente,  G1 winning 2yos Afrikaburn and For The Lads, and star sprinter Trip To Heaven.

His G2 Selangor Cup winning son Gold Standard has just commenced stud duties alongside Trippi at Drakenstein Stud.
