The Scott Bros’ liver chestnut Gr1 producing mare and KZN Breeders Broodmare Of The Year for 2016, Tellittothestars has produced a Mogok filly at Highdown Stud the night before last.
The dam of Gr1 and Gr2 winner Talktothestars produced a big filly – and a full sibling to a colt in training with Garth Puller, named Tellittothegods.
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.
Talktothestars after placing second in the Gr2 Merchants in June this season, to Search Party, ran unplaced in the Gr1 Mercury Sprint but made the well bred Var filly, Sommerlied, work hard for her record producing win against two sprinting giants – Brutal Force and the son of Overlord – as they all crossed the line within a head of each other in an incredible race at Scottsville.
Coenie De Beer, the owner and trainer of Talktothestars, brought along the 7 year old gelding’s younger full sister on the day.
Lady Starlett was victorious for the fifth occasion a race later under Anton Marcus, flying home in the familiar orange and white checked silks.
Winning filly Twinkle Town out of Tellittothestars, has retired to Scott Bros for the breeding season but it hasnt yet been determined as to who she will visit for the season.
Mogok as a broodmare sire has already produced the likes of Matador Man, Secretariat Stakes Listed winner and third in the Gr1 Champions Cup, as well as the winner of the KZN Breeders Million Mile.
