Wilgerbosdrift’s bang in-form stallion Flower Alley, whose son Alibi Guy made it two wins from as many starts when victorious at Scottsville on Saturday, had a smart looking stakes winner in North America on the same day.
Flower Alley’s six-year-old daughter Beach Flower outclassed her rivals when she romped home to a three and a half length win in the Lady Canterbury Stakes at Canterbury Park on Saturday.
Trained by McLean Robertson, Beach Flower won as she liked in Saturday’s $100 000 1600m feature to pick up her first win of 2019.
Out of the Harlan’s Holiday daughter Hogan Beach, Beach Flower has now won eight times (her previous wins include the Minnesota H.B.P.A Distaff Stakes) and she also ran third in the G3 Rood And Riddle Dowager Stakes last year.
She is one of 40 black type horses sired by Flower Alley thus far, with others including the G1 winners I’ll Have Another, Lilacs And Lace, Bullards Alley and Lukes Alley. (He is also sire of champion My Wandy’s Girl, US millionaire Neck ‘N Neck and San Juan Capistrano victor Nessy).
Flower Alley has also made a pleasing start with his first South African 2yos this season including the winners Alibi Guy, Parterre, Rille, Keep Smiling and Smiley Kylie.
The G1 winning son of Distorted Humor has two lots on offer at the 2019 KZN Yearling Sale.
