The Wilgerbosdrift bred Nother Russia picked up a Cape Breeders Award when honoured at Wednesday night’s Cape Racing/Breeding Awards ceremony at the Vineyard Hotel.
Now retired, the gallant chestnut enjoyed another excellent season in 2017-2018 winning three times for trainer Mike de Kock and owner Mauritzfontein.
Nother Russia’s wins last season included a repeat score in the G1 HSH Princess Charlene Empress Club Stakes, where she accounted for Al Danza and
Also victorious in last season’s G2 Ipi Tombe Challenge, the uber consistent Nother Russia retires to stud having won or placed in 17 of her 18 races and earned over R2.8 million in stakes.
The plucky chestnut’s eight wins included four graded victories, highlighted by her back to back successes in the Empress Club Stakes.
A daughter of Wilgerbosdrift’s deceased Storm Cat sire Tiger Ridge, Nother Russia is the only foal produced by Equus Champion and four time G1 winner Mother Russia and she is an exciting addition to the South African broodmare band for sure!
