Drakenstein Stud’s evergreen champion sire Trippi has had a fantastic season in 2022-2023 and Trippi’s wonderful year continued when his two-year-old daughter October Morn ran out a facile winner of the Listed Perfect Promise Sprint run at Hollywoodbets Kenilworth on Saturday.
In the process, October Morn became the 91st stakes winner for her sire, who was South Africa’s Champion Sire in 2015-2016.

Trained by Candice Bass-Robinson, October Morn made it two wins from just four starts when romping home to a six-length win in Saturday’s 1200m contest for juvenile fillies.

Under Aldo Domeyer, the Trippi filly proved to be in a race of her own and drew well clear to win as she liked, with fellow Trippi filly Quick Trip back in the second spot. Remarkably, Trippi is the sire or broodmare sire of the first four home in the 2023 Perfect Promise Sprint.

(Trippi’s great run as a broodmare sire was also felt when Future Girl, out of Trippi’s daughter Monte Carlo Girl, captured Saturday’s Listed World Sports Betting Stormsvlei Stakes).

Runner up in the G3 Winter Nursery last time out, October Morn joins the likes of Hammie’s Hooker and Lesedi La Rona as past Perfect Promise Sprint-winning daughters of Trippi.

Bred and owned by Avontuur Thoroughbred Farm in partnership with David Abery, October Morn is out of the Var mare Miss October and she is a full-sister to G2 Haval Motors South Africa Umkhomazi Stakes runner-up Spring Break.

She joins an ever-growing list of high-class stakes winners representing Trippi this year, with the stallion’s flagbearers this season headed by the G1 winning stars Jet Dark (G1 WSB Cape Town Met), Charles Dickens (G1 Hollywoodbets Cape Guineas, G1 Hollywoodbets Gold Challenge), and Trip Of Fortune (G1 H F Oppenheimer Horse Chestnut Stakes).

Trippi is set to be represented by Trip Of Fortune and fellow 2023 graded stakes winning sons Pacaya and Winchester Mansion in Saturday’s G1 Hollywoodbets Durban July.
