Tuesday double for Flower Alley

Wilgerbosdrift’s inform Travers Stakes winning stallion Flower Alley had a good day out at the Vaal on Tuesday with his progeny winning the first two races on the card.

His three-year-old daughter Consul Queen got off the mark in convincing fashion when she romped home to a two length win in Tuesday’s first race, over 2000m.
The Klawervlei Stud bred filly, who is trained by Tony Nassif, had finished second on her previous start and duly went one better on Tuesday.

Flower Alley’s two-year-old daughter Fantasy Flower provided her sire with a quick double when she romped home to break her maiden by three and three quarter lengths when victorious over 1200m on Tuesday.
The Lucky Houdalakis trained filly was trying the 1200m trip for a first time, with Fantasy Flower having finished fourth at the second time of asking.

Bred by Bruce Le Roux, Fantasy Flower joins Lemon Delight and Flower Of Saigon as promising Flower Alley sired two-year-olds this season.

Winner of four graded stakes races and runner up in the G1 Breeders’ Cup Classic, Flower Alley was recently responsible for his 24th individual stakes winner when his daughter Distinctive Flower won the Vivacious Handicap in North America.
Flower Alley, whose Kentucky Derby winning son I’ll Have Another has been responsible for the earners of more than $3.2 millionĀ  in 2020, has 14 lots on offer at this year’s Emperors Palace National Yearling Sale.
