Debut winner for Flower Alley

Wilgerbosdrift’s inform sire Flower Alley has had a fine season in 2021-2022, and the G1 winning son of Distorted Humor came up with another eye catching winner when his two-year-old daughter No Greater Love made a winning debut on Friday.

Under Greg Cheyne, No Greater Love was green early on in Friday’s Welcome To Nelson Mandela Bay Racing Maiden Juvenile Plate (1000m) but once she got the hang of things, the Flower Alley filly hit the front 100m from home and powered away to win on debut by a length and a half.

Trained by Alan Greeff, No Greater Love is out of the Western Winter mare Oh My Darling.

Bred by Wilgerbosdrift & Mauritzfontein, No Greater Love was a R40 000 buy from the 2021 Cape Yearling Sale.

The filly is the second two-year-old winner for Flower Alley this season, following impressive debut winner Maharanee, while Flower Alley is also sire of this season’s Listed Storm Bird Stakes runner up Arividicio.

Flower Alley’s other flagbearers this season include G2 Peninsula Handicap winner FireAlley and G2 WSB Ipi Tombe Challenge/G3 Yellowwood Handicap queen Bold Fortune, and the former G1 Travers Stakes winner has two runners in tomorrow’s G2 Wilgerbosdrift SA Oaks.

Currently eighth on the South African General Sires List, Flower Alley has 11 lots on offer at the 2022 National Yearling Sale.
