Drakenstein Stud’s inform sire Philanthropist had another notable double at Turffontein on Sunday.
The son of Kris S’ pair of winners included a very impressive two-year-old winner, who maintained her unbeaten record in style.
The Moutonshoek bred Heaven’s Reward made it two wins from two starts when scoring a gutsy victory over 1200m, in a juvenile plate for fillies, for trainer Lucky Houdalakis and jockey Craig Zackey.
A winner on debut, Heaven’s Reward was conceding 3kgs to the runner up Parental Control.
She is one of a number of promising looking two-year-olds representing Philanthropist this season, with others including such debut winners as Vivir and Ganesh Talai, as well as Golden Horseshoe runner Clifton Crusher.
Philanthropist, who hails from the same family as National Assembly, Sovereign Dancer and What A Pleasure, has been represented by eight juvenile winners this season thus far.
Heaven’s Reward was one of two Sunday winners at Turffontein for Philanthropist, whose 3yo son Sweet Trial broke his maiden over 1000m for trainer Roy Magner.
Inbred to Epsom Derby winner Roberto, Sweet Trial was bred by James Armitage.
North America’s Leading All Weather Sire for 2014, Philanthropist has enjoyed another year in 2018, with his son Singapore Sling capturing Hong Kong’s Classic Cup and earning more than HK$14 000 000 in stakes.
