Trippi filly shares Book 2 Cape Premier honours

TRADE picked up during the final session of Book Two of the inaugural Cape Premier Yearling Sale at Kenilworth racecourse in South Africa on Sunday, with final gross receipts totalling R24,653,000 (£2,065,849/€2,474,695).

A daughter of the former American sire Trippi, now making a serious impact in South Africa, led the way when selling for R400,000 (£33,516/€40,150) to trainer Joey Ramsden. Her price matched that given by Markus Jooste for a son of Silvano the previous day.


Consigned by Arc-En-Ciel Stud, the Trippi filly is out of the Diesis mare Yellow Zinia, a sister to British Group 3 winner and Group 1-placed Duck Row.

Owner Markus Jooste remained active, goingto R375,000 (£31,421/€37,641) for a first-crop son of the shock 2008 Dubai Duty Free winner Jay Peg from Normandy Stud. Another first-crop sire in demand was the former Ballydoyle inmate Where's That Tiger. The Group 3-placed son of Storm Cat was the sire of a filly out of the Danehill mare Dame Matico who was knocked down to  trainer Vaughan Marshall for R360,000 (£30,168/€36,139).

In all, 265 horses changed hands at an average of R83,569 (£7,003/€8,389) and median of R60,000 (£5,028/€6,023).
