Crusade has produced two winners in a week, the first with Roski’s Onamission for Mike De Kock at Turffontein, the other with Romantic Crusade at Durbanville yesterday for July winning trainer Candice Bass-Robinson. Glen Kotzen’s debut winning Crusade, Wings Of Honor, followed up with a third place at the same course.
A few of our foals pictured this season by Crusade, Flying The Flag, The Apache and Mogok. The photos were taken 13 September. We are very pleased that Tellittothestars, the dam of Gr1 winner Talktothestars and Equus Champion Sprinter of 2016, has been scanned in foal to Crusade this season.
The filly out of a Jet Master mare bred by Scott Bros, is owned by Chrigor Stud (Pty) Ltd (Nom: Mrs S Hattingh) and purchased for R250 000 at the 2016 KZN Yearling Sale by Glen Kotzen won impressively on debut.
Brigtnumberten gave his sire Eightfold Path his first winner comfortably this afternoon at Turffontein over 1000m under Gavin Lerena for trainer Roy Magner.
The dam of Gr1 and Gr2 winner Talktothestars produced a big Mogok filly the night before last. The mating of Tellittothestars to Mogok has been successful three times previously – producing three winners with seven wins amongst them all, including Lucky Houdalakis trained Twinkle Town.
“With a large draft of 26 juveniles on offer at this year’s Two Year Old Sale, which takes place on August 17th and 18th, there is every chance another champion will emerge from the Scott Bros’ 2017 National Two Year Old Sale draft.” – tba.co.za
