Drakenstein Stud’s champion sire Trippi made headlines in two hemispheres on Sunday this weekend.
In South Africa, Trippi’s lightly raced daughter Love To Boogie became her sire’s 71st individual stakes winner when she won the Listed Off To Stud Stakes at Greyville.
Bred by Anthony Peter, the 4yo Love To Boogie romped home to record a two and a quarter length win, for trainer Andre Nel and jockey Aldo Domeyer, over Golden Slipper winner Final Judgement, with former Fillies Guineas winner Heaps Of Fun back in third spot.
Another daughter of Trippi, Trippi’s Girl, filled the fourth position in the Off To Stud Stakes.
Now a winner of four of just ten outings, the regally bred Love To Boogie had previously been runner up in the Listed Olympic Duel Stakes earlier in her career. The Trippi filly had been a R550 000 purchase from the 2015 National Yearling Sale.
Trippi, whose broodmare daughters are building up a formidable record as high class producers, also made news in Japan on Sunday.
The son of End Sweep is broodmare sire of the hugely promising Japanese 2yo Aster Pegasus, who made it two wins from as many outings when landing the G3 Hakodate Nisai Stakes over 1200m in Japan this weekend.
A son of Giant’s Causeway, the unbeaten colt was produced by Trippi’s G1 Spinaway Stakes winning daughter R Heat Lightning.
Aster Pegasus is bred on the same Giant’s Causeway/Trippi cross as G3 Iroquois Stakes and G1 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile second Not This Time.
Trippi has had another stellar season in 2017-2018, with his other notable performers including exported G1 SA Classic hero Lobo’s Legend, G1 Cape Guineas second White River, unbeaten Perfect Promise Sprint heroine Lesedi La Rona and Lanzerac Ready To Run Stakes victress Miss Katalin.
South Africa’s Champion Sire of 2015-2016, Trippi has a single lot, in the form of a filly (Lot 152) from the family of Miesque and current standouts Alpha Centauri and Study Of Man, at next month’s National Two Year Old Sale.
