Drakenstein Stud’s veteran champion sire Trippi is having an outstanding season in 2022-2023 thus far, and End Sweep’s champion son struck yet again at Hollywoodbets Kenilworth on Saturday afternoon.
Trippi’s classy son Trip Of Fortune provided his inform sire with more success on Saturday when he won the G2 World Sports Betting Green Point Stakes, while Trippi went close to claiming yet another graded stakes race when his daughter Iphiko ran a close up second in Saturday’s G2 wsb.co.za Southern Cross Stakes (another daughter of Trippi, Santa Maria, finished fourth in the Southern Cross Stakes).
Trippi is also sire of the exciting young stallion Gold Standard, whose first-crop daughters Hold My Hand and Golden Hostess finished third and fourth respectively in Saturday’s G1 World Sports Betting Cape Fillies Guineas.
The Drakenstein Stud bred and owned Trip Of Fortune picked up his third graded stakes win when downing a top-class field to win Saturday’s Green Point Stakes.
Under Aldo Domeyer, the Candice Bass-Robinson trained gelding flew up late to land the Green Point Stakes impressively by a length and a half, with G1 stars Kommetdieding, Golden Ducat, Linebacker and Pomp And Power among his beaten rivals.
Winner of the Listed World Sports Betting Somerset 1200 at two, Trip Of Fortune has now won seven of just 13 starts, with his previous wins including this season’s G3 Hollywoodbets Matchem Stakes and last season’s G3 Cape Classic.
Trip Of Fortune, who is out of the Doowaley mare Louvre, is one of 89 stakes winners for his sire.
South Africa’s Champion Sire of 2015-2016, Trippi also made headlines as a broodmare sire on Saturday.
Dual G1 winner, and proven G1 sire, Liam’s Map (who is out of the Trippi mare Miss Macy Sue) came up with a new graded stakes winner when his four-year-old daughter Dr B won the G3 Go For Wand Stakes at Aqueduct on Saturday. Dr B continued her steady ascent up the ranks with an authoritative win in the Go for Wand for trainer Butch Reid and owners Cash is King and LC Racing. Dr B banked $110,000 in victory, while improving her record to 5-5-2 from 16 starts.
Winner of both the G1 Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile and G1 Woodward Stakes, Liam’s Map is also sire of such US G1 winners as Colonel Liam, Juju’s Map, Wicked Whisper and Basin.
Trippi is in the middle of another fantastic season, with the champion’s other flagbearers including unbeaten rising star Charles Dickens, who holds an entry for the 2023 G1 World Sports Betting Cape Town Met.
Charles Dickens is one of four sons of Trippi entered for the Met, with others including multiple Equus Champion Jet Dark, winner of this season’s G3 Cape Mile.
