Flower Alley filly lands Fillies Championship

Wilgerbosdrift’s G1 Travers Stakes winning stallion Flower Alley dominated the finish to Saturday’s G2 Western Cape Fillies Championship (1400m) at Kenilworth, with his daughters and Lemon Delight finishing first and fourth respectively.

The Adam Marcus trained Princess Calla, third in the G1 Thekwini Stakes last time out, made it two wins from just three starts with a professional performance.
Under jockey Craig Zackey, the Maine Chance Farms bred 3yo tracked the front running Trickster before hitting the front 300m from home.

From there, Princess Calla stayed on to post a convincing two length win, while stamping herself a likely classic contender in the process.

Out of the Captain Al mare Princess Royal, Princess Calla was a R600 000 buy from the 2019 Cape Premier Yearling Sale.

She is the 25th stakes winner for Flower Alley, whose other notable daughters include G1 Ashland Stakes winner Lilacs And Lace, champion My Wandy’s Girl, G3 Delta Princess Stakes heroine Bouquet Booth, and Ormond Ferraris Oaks Trial heroine Fayrooz.

The son of Distorted Humor has 13 lots on offer at the 2020 Emperors Palace National 2YO Sale and a single lot on this year’s CTS Ready To Run, Unbroken 2 Year & Mixed Sale.
