Lammerskraal Stud’s inform sire Visionaire was at it again on Thursday, when the son of Grand Slam enjoyed double success on the ten race card.
The very well bred Visionaire filly Blond Vision impressed when romping home to shed her maiden by 3.1 lengths over 1200m at the Vaal on Thursday and she looks progressive. (It was another 5.7 lengths to the well bred favourite, Kindavar).
Trained by Mike de Kock and ridden to victory by Randall Simons, the 3yo Blond Vision was making just the second outing of her fledgling career with Blond Vision having finished fourth when making her debut.
Blonde Vision was bred by the Summerhill Stud.
Visionaire’s second winner on Thursday came when his son Golden Lion was promoted to first place in the third race (a maiden plate over 1200m), following original winner Hartleyfour was disqualified and demoted to second.
Trained by Gorkhan Terzi, the Barton Hall Stud bred 3yo had been a close up second at his previous outing with Golden Lion having made just three career starts thus far.
His G1 King’s Bishop Stakes winning sire Visionaire has been in the news of late, with Visionaire daughter Vi Va Pi Pa having captured Saturday’s Emperors Palace Ready To Run Cup at Turffontein, and Visionaire himself having topped the Sires List at last weekend’s Ready To Run Sale in Germiston.
