Lammerskraal Stud has welcomed some truly outstanding foals this season. Among the foals born at the farm this season thus far are youngsters by such top class sires as Dynasty, Gimmethegreenlight and Visionaire.
The latter, South Africa’s Champion First Crop Sire of 2014-2015 and Champion Second Crop Sire of 2015-2016, has some cracking foals at his place of residence this season, with Lammerskraal’s Visionaire foals including a striking daughter of Broodmare Of The Year Strawberry Lane.
The latter, whose own sister Jalberry is dam of recent Diana Stakes winner Love To Boogie, is dam of seven winners to date, including the G1 winning siblings Solo Traveller (Cape Guineas) and Redberry Lane (Garden Province Stakes).
Abashiri’s half-sister Killie Campbell (also a ¾ to Horse Of The Year Yard-Arm) also produced a smart filly by the G1 winning Visionaire.
The latter also has a smashing colt foal on the ground who is out of Western Winter’s daughter Iditarod. The latter is a really exciting mare whose foals include East Cape champion Widow’s Lamp (by Go Deputy), as well as the latter’s promising own brother Iditarod Trail.
Jet Master’s G1 Woolavington 2000 Viva Maria has a smashing Dynasty filly on the ground this year. This filly is a full-sister to Sovereign Spirit, who made a very smart debut recently when runner up to highly regarded Crown Towers over 1200m at Kenilworth.
Other striking foals to have arrived at the farm thus far include the Gimmethegreenlight own sister to the stakes placed Green Haze, and the Master Of My Fate colt whose dam Savannah Air is a daughter of Western Winter and Southern Cross Stakes runner up Burnt Savannah.
