Tuesday treble for What A Winter

22nd Mar 2023

Drakenstein Stud’s red-hot resident sire What A Winter’s great season continued at Turffontein on Tuesday when the multiple Equus Champion came up with three more winners.
What A Winter struck first on Tuesday when his two-year-old son Max The Magician justified tote favouritism when running out a clear winner of the first race on the card.
Fourth on debut, Max The Magician had finished a close-up third on his only other outing prior to Tuesday’s race.
Trained by Roy Magner, Max The Magician stormed home, under Denis Schwarz, to land Tuesday’s 4Racing Welcomes You Maiden Juvenile Plate (1450m) by over a length and three-quarters.
Bred by the Hemel ‘N Aarde Stud, the colt was an R375 000 buy from the 2022 National Yearling Sale.
Out of the Rambo Dancer mare Cast A Spell, Max The Magician is a full-brother to G2 Western Cape Fillies Championship runner-up Trickster.
He is the sixth two-year-old winner for What A Winter this season, with What A Winter currently South Africa’s Leading Sire of 2YOs for 2022-2023 by stakes.
What A Winter filly Maboneng added to her sire’s tally when she prevailed in a desperate finish to claim Tuesday’s seventh race for Keagan De Melo and Sean Tarry.
Bred by Wilgerbosdrift & Mauritzfontein, Maboneng, who was winning for a second time, is out of the Cape Cross mare Ajiaal.
Her sire ended the day on a high note when What A Winter filly Coldhardstare ran out an easy winner of the tenth and final race at Turffontein.
Bred and owned by Drakenstein Stud, three-year-old Coldhardstare did well to win by two lengths, with the filly racing three wide early on in Tuesday’s 1200m contest. Trained by Michael and Adam Azzie, Coldhardstare has now won twice from just four starts and she looks well above average.
South Africa’s Leading Sire of 2YOs in 2020-2021, What A Winter has 23 lots on offer at this year’s National Yearling Sale.
