Flower Alley filly romps to debut win

Wilgerbosdrift’s inform stallion Flower Alley looks to have some very exciting two-year-olds this season, and the 2005 G1 Travers Stakes winner came up with yet another smart looking juvenile prospect on Thursday.

Flower Alley’s two-year-old daughter Southern Charm stamped herself a bright prospect by romping home at the first time of asking at Turffontein on Thursday.
The Mike De Kock trained filly was always up with the pace in Thursday’s maiden juvenile plate for fillies (1000m), and when Raymond Danielson asked her the question, Southern Charm stormed home to win going away by six and a quarter lengths.

Bred by Pippa Mickleburgh, Southern Charm was a R50 000 buy from the 2019 Cape Premier Yearling Sale.

Out of the Western Winter mare Count The Cash, Southern Charm is Flower Alley’s ninth South African two-year-old winner this season thus far, with the sire also responsible for Listed Kudex Perfect Promise Sprint runner up Lemon Delight and the impressive debut winners Santa Therese and Princess Calla.

Sire of 47 stakes horses to date (his progeny have already earned over $41 000 000), Flower Alley has 14 lots on offer at the upcoming Emperors Palace National Yearling Sale.
