Wilgerbosdrift’s high-class sire Flower Alley struck in Hong Kong on Monday when his son Parterre won at Sha Tin.
Under Lyle Hewitson, seven-year-old Parterre made much of the running and fought back gamely to win Monday’s Good Fortune Handicap (Div 1) by a length.

In the process, Parterre provided his jockey with his 100th win of the season.
Bred by Wilgerbosdrift & Mauritzfontein, Parterre has now earned more than HK$2.5 million in prize money.
Parterre, who is out of the Oasis Dream mare Square Dance, won twice, from nine starts, and finished third in the 2020 G3 City Of Cape Town Politician Stakes and fourth in the 2020 G1 ARF Commemorative Cape Derby.
The gelding was a R650 000 buy from the 2018 National Yearling Sale.

His G1 Travers Stakes winning sire Flower Alley is having another good season in 2023-2024, with his flagbearers this season including G1 City Of Cape Town Majorca Stakes winner Princess Calla and G2 Betway Joburg Spring F and M Challenge queen Feather Boa.

To date, Flower Alley runners have earned more than $47 000 000 with his progeny also including Kentucky Derby winning champion I’ll Have Another.
