Drakenstein Stud’s much missed sire Lancaster Bomber came up with a third first-crop winner when his two-year-old son Guy Gibson made a very impressive winning debut at the Vaal on Thursday.

Trained by Roy Magner, the grey was given a very confident ride by recent SA Classic winning jockey Raymond Danielson.

Danielson threaded his way through the field before bringing Guy Gibson with a strong late burst to claim Thursday’s Play Soccer 6,10 and 13 Maiden Juvenile Plate (1000m) impressively by a neck.

Bred by Varsfontein Stud, Guy Gibson is out of the Jet Master mare Kiss And Fly.

The colt was an R400 000 buy from the 2022 August Two Year Old Sale.
His late, G1 Tattersalls Gold Cup winning sire Lancaster Bomber has made a very bright start with his first two-year-olds this season, including Listed City Of Cape Town Summer Juvenile Stakes winner Rascova and eye-catching winner Siddeley.

The latter has been entered in the upcoming Listed East Cape Fillies Nursery where she could bid to provide Lancaster Bomber with more posthumous success.

At the time of writing, Lancaster Bomber is South Africa’s Leading First Season Sire by stakes earned.
