Drakenstein Stud’s champion sire Trippi came up with his 82nd stakes winner when his unbeaten two-year-old daughter Sound Of Warning claimed the G3 Strelitzia Stakes (1100m) at Hollywoodbets Scottsville on Sunday.
Trained by Sean Tarry, the Drakenstein Stud bred and owned Sound Of Warning was making just her second start and having her first start in KwaZulu-Natal.
However the daughter of Trippi proved far too classy for her rivals, and romped home, under Lyle Hewitson, to claim the R150 000 feature by over two and a half lengths.
Her paternal half-sister Sky Glitter made a bold showing on debut, running on powerfully for fifth, having been well out of contention for much of Sunday’s race and she looks another smart two-year-old for Trippi.
Sound Of Warning is out of the top-class racemare Siren’s Call, who won or placed in nine of just ten starts and was most unlucky not to win the Triple Tiara of 2015. A daughter of Elusive Fort, Siren’s Call won both the G2 Wilgerbosdrift Gauteng Fillies Guineas and G1 Wilgerbosdrift SA Fillies Classic before finishing a close up second in that year’s G1 Wilgerbosdrift SA Oaks.
The unbeaten Sound Of Warning looks a natural contender for the G1 Allan Robertson Championship, and is another feather in the cap of her champion sire Trippi.
The latter, whose G1 winning daughter Real Princess is the dam of Sunday’s impressive debut winner Gimme A Prince (Trippi is also broodmare sire of Sunday’s G3 Poinsettia Stakes queen Vihaan’s Pie), has had another fine season in 2020-2021, with Trippi’s recent flagbearers including G1 L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate winner Jet Dark and fellow graded stakes winners Crome Yellow and Mombela, to name but a few.
Trippi, South Africa’s Champion Sire of 2015-2016, has a single lot on the upcoming CTS Farm Yearling Sale -a filly (Lot 34) out of G3 Flamboyant Stakes winner Laser Fan.
