The past weekend was again a very productive and exciting one for the Bush Hill sires with them achieving what may well be a first for a South African stud farm with a “weekend double” in Singapore. On Friday King’s Chapel’s son Boundless Glory won the TC Austcham Cup over 1200m and this was followed on Sunday by Kahal’s son Coronet Peak recording a victory also over 1200m.
Boundless Glory was recorded his eighth career victory with this win and his second for the season. He has had three starts in the last month for two wins and a second. He is out of the Stravinsky mare Stage Fright who herself was a one time winner and to date has had five foals for three runners and two winners with Boundless Glory being comfortably the best of these.
Coronet Peak was bred by Somerset Stud and is out of the Gallic League mare Claire Anne. Somerset sold a full brother to Coronet Peak at the National Yearling sales this year for R 300 000.
To add to these results we received a couple of rave reviews on the first of the Curved Ball foals that are hitting the ground. Bruce le Roux of Spring Valley phoned to report the third of the foals born on his stud by the exciting son of Fastnet Rock and said “this colt is just like the other two and is absolutely outstanding, and on the strength of these foals I have switched a couple of extra mares to go to him this season”.
TBA yearling inspector and Kerry Jack reported “I am very pleased with my Curved Ball filly, she's developing into a lovely, racy, scopey filly, lots of quality, out of quite a slight high quality Victory Moon mare”.
