Code Red For Rising SAf Star

Monday, 25th March 2013

The expression "pedigree will out" could well prove to be a truism in the case of an as-yet non stakes-winning juvenile in South Africa. Campaigned by industry leviathan Markus Jooste, 2YO colt Red Ray has won his only 2 starts to date, the most recent last Friday at Kenilworth in Cape Town, with contemptuous ease. By multiple champion sire Western Winter, Red Ray is from a damline with plenty of Gr1 performers: he is a full-brother to Gr1 Thekwini Stakes winner Nania, a mare who is a half-sister to two individual Gr1 winners in Set Afire and Rudra. His grand dam Tawny Red is a half-sister to South Africa's Horse of the Year and Champion 2YO & Champion 3YO Royal Chalice.
