Buffalo Bill Cody filly makes it two in a row

Wilgerbosdrift’s promising young stallion Buffalo Bill Cody has made a bright start to his stud career, and the son of Redoute’s Choice was at it again when his first crop daughter Khethiwe’s Destiny won the eighth and final race at Hollywoodbets Scottsville on Sunday.

The two-year-old, trained, like her sire, by Mike De Kock, made it back-to-back wins when she downed some hard-knocking older rivals to land the Hollywoodbets Bright Future FM 73 Handicap (1200m) in good style.

Under an inform Muzi Yeni, Khethiwe’s Destiny romped home to score by nearly two and a half lengths and she looks like a well above-average filly.
Bred by Narrow Creek Stud (also breeders of Buffalo Bill Cody’s early winners Buffalo Storm Cody and Rattlesnake ), Khethiwe’s Destiny has now won two of four starts, with the filly finishing third in each of her first two starts.

Khethiwe’s Destiny, who is out of the Gimmethegreenlight mare Gimmethemoney, was a R200 000 buy from the 2023 Cape Yearling Sale.

She is one of five winners, from just 11 runners, to have emerged from Buffalo Bill Cody’s small first crop, with this crop also including Listed HKJC World Pool Event April 6 Storm Bird Stakes winner Pistol Pete.

From the same female line as top-class stallion Hard Spun, Buffalo Bill Cody is currently the second Leading First Season Sire in South Africa for 2023-2024.
