Drakenstein Stud’s inform stallion What A Winter, responsible for three individual G1 winners last season, enjoyed yet more feature race success on Saturday.

His talented four-year-old daughter Hello Winter Hello claimed the second black type win of her career when she stormed home to land the Listed Laisserfaire Stakes (1100m) at Kenilworth on Saturday afternoon.

Trained by Adam Marcus, and ridden by Craig Zackey, Hello Winter Hello showed her class with a fluent win in the 2020 Laisserfaire Stakes.
Phil’s Dancer, Vodka Lime and Lilac Sensation were all prominent early, as Zackey kept Hello Winter Hello just off the pace.
Zackey sent Hello Winter Hello with a strong late run down the inside of the track, and they went on to score by a length and a quarter, with the front running Phil’s Dancer taking second, and outsider On Captain’s Side picking up some valuable black type by finishing third.
Bred by Favour Stud, Hello Winter Hello claimed Saturday’s first prize of R51 000 in a time of 64.52 seconds.

The filly had also enjoyed notable success when victorious in the Listed Olympic Duel Stakes earlier this year and Hello Winter Hello, one of two runners in the Laisserfaire Stakes for What A Winter, has now won four of just nine starts.

Her four time G1 winning sire What A Winter, whose daughters also include dual G1 Bidvest Majorca Stakes winner Clouds Unfold and G2 winning millionaire Magical Wonderland, has 16 lots on the upcoming Emperors Palace National 2YO Sale, and ten more lots on the CTS Ready To Run, Unbroken 2 Year Old & Mixed Sale.
