Toreador, a recent arrival at Bush Hill Stud from the Cape, has settled very nicely into his new home. The most successful son of Danehill to stand in South Africa, he had three of his progeny place in three Stakes races over the weekend - at Turffontein, Clairwood and Fairview.
Another Idea ran second in the East Cape Nursery Listed at Fairview over 1200m, from Seattle Storm by a quarter of a length in slightly soft going from a ninth draw. Another Idea is trained by Justin Snaith and he has had three runs, a win and place - never being more than 3 lengths off the winner in two of his runs - and winning at Durbanville by a length over 1000m.
Brasillia, bred by the Tawny Syndicate and trained by Sean Tarry, placed in the Godolphin Barb Stakes Gr 3 over the weekend at Clairwood, ridden by Sean Cormack. The colt has had two runs, and placed in the second.
Another daughter of Toreador also trained by Sean Tarry, She's A Stunner ran second in the Gr 3 Sycamore Sprint at Turffontein from Kinematic Countess in very soft going - with She's A Stunner giving the winner 5kgs. She's A Stunner is a five-time winner, and has placed 13 times. A previous winnner of the Gr 3 Strelitzia Stakes, she has also placed in two Gr 1's behind Princess Victoria, the Gr 3 Poinsettia Stakes and just two lengths off Ebony Flyer in the Gr 1 SA Fillies Sprint.
Toreador has produced the likes of Link Man, Las Ramblas, Jackadore, Straight Forward and Deliver The Power.
