THRILLING WIN AT TURFFONTEIN FOR RED STAR BY ELUSIVE FORT
Allan pinhook wins by 6.25L for Allan-managed stallion
19th Jul 2014
Yesterday at Turffontein a 2 year old filly RED STAR owned by Mr&Mrs Van Vuuren, trained by Mike Azzie and ridden by JP van der Merwe won her second start (1400 metres maiden) by 6.25 lengths.
This very impressive win is yet another boost for fast-starting stallion ELUSIVE FORT who may be top freshman sire in the Cape now for percentage of winners to runners. Managed by Allan Bloodlines, ELUSIVE FORT stands for a fee of R 10,000 + VAT Live Foal at Klipdrif Stud, Robertson, home of the late great JET MASTER.
The other Allan factor in this eye catching win is that the filly was purchased by Allan Bloodlines at CTS Book 2 Yearling Sales and sent together with consigner Balmoral Stud to the Bloodstock South Africa Ready to Run Sales (Nov 2013) where she made about seven times her yearling price.
