Wilgerbosdrift’s inform sire Flower Alley continues to churn out winners week after week, and the G1 winning son of Distorted Humor was at it again when Flower Alley came up with two more winners at Hollywoodbets Greyville on Monday.
Flower Alley’s first success came when his Alyson Wright trained son Syx Hotfix ran out a courageous winner of the fourth race on Monday.
Under Keagan De Melo, the gelded four-year-old appeared beaten close home in the Follow In The Box Seat Podcast MR 77 Handicap (2000m) but fought back gamely and got up to win by a long neck.
Bred by Moutonshoek, Syx Hotfix, who is out of the Jallad mare Kiss For Kate, has now won four times from 12 starts, with the gelding having won his last two in a row.
Flower Alley struck again at Greyville when his son Iron Bark caused a 14-1 surprise when he won the eighth and final race on the card.
The Gareth Van Zyl trained gelding was given a positive ride by Anthandiwe Mgudlwa, who coaxed more from Iron Bark to stay on and land the Hollywoodbets Bright Future MR 78 Handicap (1000m) by a neck.
Bred by Dr Ian Heyns, Iron Bark was winning for a fifth time overall, with the four-year-old having won three of his last five starts.
His G1 Travers Stakes winning sire Flower Alley is having another fine season in 2022-2023, with Flower Alley currently having supplied more South African stakes winners this season than the likes of What A Winter, Vercingetorix, Silvano and Querari.
