Responsible for 2021 G1 Allan Robertson Championship runner up Sound Of Warning, Drakenstein Stud’s champion sire Trippi went one better this year when his unbeaten two-year-old daughter Sweet Pepper won Saturday’s G1 Allan Robertson Championship (1200m) at Hollywoodbets Scottsville.

Trained, like Sound Of Warning, by Sean Tarry, the Drakenstein Stud bred and owned Sweet Pepper made it three wins from three starts with a fluent win in Saturday’s R500 000 feature.

Under Calvin Habib, Sweet Pepper kept finding more in the closing stages of the 2022 Allan Robertson Championship to claim her first black type win by a neck.

Out of the Gimmethegreenlight mare Green Pepper, Sweet Pepper had won on debut by over a length and three-quarters, before following up with a half length triumph at the Vaal.

Sweet Pepper is the 86th stakes winner for Trippi, South Africa’s Champion Sire of 2015-2016, and her sire’s tenth G1 winner overall thus far.

Trippi went close to enjoying a G1 double at Scottsville on Saturday with his classy daughter Sound Of Warning finishing third in Saturday’s G1 South African Fillies Sprint (a race won previously by Trippi’s daughter Real Princess) and son Chimichuri Run finishing a close up fourth in the same day’s G1 Golden Horse Sprint.
