Jay Peg: son of Camden Park stands at Klawervlei Stud in South AfricaPICTURE: Singapore Turf Club
First winner for Dubai Duty Free hero Jay Peg
JAY PEG, the Dubai Duty Free hero of 2008, was represented by his first winner as a sire on Monday when his son Olympic Owen cruised to victory on his debut in a 4½f maiden at Flamingo Park in South Africa.
The Corne Spies-trained Olympic Owen, a R100,000 purchase from last year's Cape Premier Yearling Sale, scored by more than ten lengths in the Computaform Express Maiden Juvenile Plate for two-year-olds.
Jay Peg is represented this southern-hemisphere season by his first two-year-olds. His only other runner, Pegwell Bay, finished second on his debut.
Jay Peg was one of the best South African-trained performers in recent years.
As well as landing the Cape Guineas and Cape Derby in his homeland, he went on to beat stars including Darjina, Archipenko, Vodka and Finsceal Beo in the Dubai Duty Free, and took another big international prize when easily winning the Singapore Cup.
A son of the late A.P. Indy stallion Camden Park, Jay Peg stood at Klawervlei Stud in South Africa for the past season at a fee of R10,000.
