Wilgerbosdrift’s resident sire Flower Alley has enjoyed a promising week in South Africa this week, and the former G1 Travers Stakes winner enjoyed more success, this time in North America, when his durable son Flowers For Lisa won at Delaware Park on Thursday.
Now a six-year-old, the gelded Flowers For Lisa made it win number 12 when romping to a three and a quarter length win in an allowance optional claiming race over a mile and 70 yards.
The Ken & Sarah Ramsey bred gelding is trained by Jorge Navarro, and Flowers For Lisa has now won twice, from just four starts, in 2019.
Flowers For Lisa, who has now banked nearly $500 000 in prize money, has now won or placed in no fewer than 28 outings thus far.
His G1 winning sire Flower Alley enjoyed success earlier this week when his first local crop daugher Hawthorn scored an eye catching victory at Turffontein, while another daughter, How And Why, ran on nicely to take second place at Kenilworth on Wednesday and she should not be long in winning.
To date, Flower Alley is sire of more than 40 stakes horses, including four G1 winners, with his progeny having already earned in excess of $39 000 000.
