Monday double for Flower Alley

Wilgerbosdrift’s inform sire Flower Alley continues to churn out high-class winners by the week and the former G1 Travers Stakes winner was at it again when Flower Alley came up with two eye catching winners at Turffontein on Monday.

Flower Alley’s first success on Monday came when his three-year-old son Libeccio romped home to land the third race on the card by daylight.
A gelding trained by Tyrone Zackey, Libeccio could hardly have been more impressive as he ran out an eight and three-quarter length winner of Monday’s Racing240 For Racing. For You Maiden Plate (1600m).
Under Ryan Munger, Libeccio simply drew further and further clear in Monday’s race to break his maiden as he liked.

Bred by Maine Chance Farms, Libeccio is out of the Western Winter mare Leste.

Flower Alley is also the sire of promising three-year-old Arividicio, who won the ninth and final race at Turffontein on Monday.
Trained by Mike de Kock, Arividicio tracked the front runners early on in Monday’s Next Turffontein Racemeeting Saturday 29 October Classified Stakes before drawing clear in the closing stages to score by nearly a length and a half.
Bred by Shadwell Stud, Arividicio (runner up in last season’s Listed Storm Bird Stakes) has now won twice from six starts and was third last time out behind G3 Godolphin Barb Stakes winner Prophet.

Held in high regard by his connections, the gelded Arividicio is out of the Exceed And Excel mare Mohallela.

His sire Flower Alley has made another good start in 2022-2023 with the son of Distorted Humor already represented by the stakes winners Integrity and Santa Therese.
