Maine Chance Farms’ inform stallion Vercingetorix was again to the fore on Friday, when his first-crop daughter Glory Days captured the Aloe Handicap (Non-Black-Type) over 1300m at Fairview.
The Wilgerbosdrift & Mauritzfontein bred three-year-old hit the front 200m out, under jockey Collen Storey and stayed on gamely to register a one and a quarter length score.
Trained by Yvette Bremner, Glory Days has now won twice, with the filly having now won or placed in five of her six starts.
Out of the Sadler’s Wells mare Dream Of Gold, Glory Days was a R80 000 buy from the 2018 National 2YO Sale.
Her G1 Jebel Hatta winning sire Vercingetorix has made an explosive start to his stud career, with the former Equus Champion’s stellar first crop also included such graded stakes winners as African Warrior and Ikigai, as well as East Cape champion Hooves Of Troy and G3 HSH Princess Charlene Starling Stakes runner up Wisteria Walk.
One of the very best sons of South Africa’s reigning champion sire Silvano, Vercingetorix had yearlings make up to R500 000 at the recent Cape Premier Yearling Sale.
The champion has a single filly (Lot 176) on offer at the upcoming Cape Yearling Sale.
