Bloodstock South Africa sold two-year-olds have been firing on all cylinders this season, and another BSA juvenile caught the eye when victorious at Scottsville on Sunday.
This time it was the turn of the Dean Kannemeyer trained Good Buddy, who justified 9-10 favouritism with a facile one and a half length score over 800 m.
Bred by the Rex Stud, Good Buddy (whose connections picked up the R40 000 BSA added value bonus) was a bargain R50 000 purchase from the 2017 Cape Yearling Sale.
The flashy grey colt, ridden to victory by champion jockey Anthony Delpech, is owned by an all-lady syndicate, made up of the trainer’s wife Tracey, and Mesdames Milstead, Ressell, Tovey and Wybrow.
A pleasing fourth in a barrier trial beforehand, Good Buddy is a son of Wilgerbosdrift bred champion Elusive Fort, who is best known as sire of high class fillies Siren’s Call, Lauderdale and Fort Ember.
The colt, who sports an impressive action, was produced by the five time winning Dominion Royale mare Ladies Domain.
