Wilgerbosdrift’s well performed resident sire Flower Alley looks to have a promising two-year-old to his name this season in the form of Lemon Delight.
The latter made an eye catching debut at Kenilworth on Saturday afternoon, when the Wynand Nel bred filly flew up late to win over 1000 metres.
Trained by Candice Bass-Robinson, Lemon Delight, who impressed in the canter past, got up to win by half a length under jockey Aldo Domeyer.
The filly was a bargain R20 000 buy from the 2019 Cape Yearling Sale.
Her G1 Travers Stakes winning sire Flower Alley, whose sons Parterre and Azores ran fourth and fifth in the recent G1 ARF Commemorative Cape Derby, is currently the sire of more than 40 black type horses, with Flower Alley’s runners, which include such G1 winning champions I’ll Have Another and Lukes Alley, having already banked over $40 000 000 in prize money.
