Weekend four-timer for Judpot

25th Sep 2018

Varsfontein Stud’s bang in-form stallion Judpot was at it again over the past weekend, with the son of  A P Indy responsible for four more winners.

Judpot’s quartet of winners was kicked off when his 3yo gelded son Don’t Look Back shed his maiden over 1900m at Greyville on Friday night.
A three-parts brother to the Judpot sired Equus Champion Along Came Polly, the Varsfontein Stud bred sophomore justified his even money favouritism with a convincing one and a half length win under jockey Warren Kennedy.

Third previously to the highly rated Duke Of Spin, Don’t Look Back (making his third official career outing) was a R240 000 buy from the 2017 National Two Year Old Sale.

Out of the Model Man mare Miss Teenage Dream, Friday’s winner is a half-brother to Listed Breeders Guineas winner Comebackanddance.

The regally bred Judpot then enjoyed a memorable treble on Sunday, when represented by winners in two different countries. His son Bush Pilot picked up his fourth career victory when making it back to back wins at Borrowdale Park, with his sire also enjoying a notable double in KZN on the same day.

Judpot, whose only other runner at Greyville on Sunday finished third, got the balling rolling with his daughter Dieci justifying favouritism to win the first race for rising riding star Luke Ferraris and in-form conditioner Dennis Drier. Dieci romped home to shed her maiden by three and a quarter lengths over 1000m in smart style. The filly (closely inbred to both Lassie Dear and Nureyev) had been second to potential feature race contender In The Stars when beaten just three parts of a length at her previous outing.

Judpot was also responsible for Afrostar, who stamped herself a filly to follow when romping home by 1.5 lengths to land the seventh race on Sunday in smart style.

Bred by the Connemara Stud, the 3yo Paul Peter trained filly has now won two of just three outings and was second in her only other racetrack appearance. Out of the Jallad mare Star Safari, Afrostar was a R140 000 buy from the 2017 Emperors Palace Select Yearling Sale.

A former Equus Outstanding Stallion, Judpot shares his legendary sire A P Indy with the outstanding stallions Bernardini, Malibu Moon, and Pulpit, while his ten time G1 winning dam Miesque (whose dual French classic winning daughter East Of The Moon is the granddam of 2018 four time G1 winner Alpha Centauri) is responsible for outstanding sire and broodmare sire Kingmambo.
