Thursday double for Flower Alley

Wilgerbosdrift’s inform resident stallion Flower Alley enjoyed a good day at Turffontein on Thursday when the Travers Stakes winning son of Distorted Humor supplied a pair of winners.

Flower Alley’s first success on Thursday came when his 3yo daughter Perfect Angel romped home to break her maiden in the third race.
Under S’Manga Khumalo, the Alec Laird trained filly pulled well clear in the closing stages to score by two and a half lengths, while victorious over 1400 metres.

Bred by Wilgerbosdrift & Mauritzfontein, Perfect Angel was making just her third start on Thursday and hopefully she can progress from this win.

Flower Alley also enjoyed success when his 3yo daughter Zernez dead-heated for first place in Thursday’s seventh race, a FM handicap over 1800m.
Trained by Corne Spies, the Winterbach Stud bred Zernez was winning for a second time in her career.

The sire of nearly 50 black type horses (his progeny have earned over $41 000 000), Flower Alley could be represented by both G2 Western Cape Fillies Championship winner Princess Calla and the useful Lemon Delight in next weekend’s G1 World Sports Betting Cape Fillies Guineas.
