Scott Bros evergreen Mogok, a sire with consistently good stats in each and every season had a double at Scottsville yesterday, including an impressive debut win with Wave.
Mogok’s progeny have earned over R1,5-million this season – an immaculately-bred sire, by Storm Cat from the immediate female line of Northern Dancer and a half-brother to Machiavellian, Mogok has the rare distinction of producing two Gr1 horses overseas – Gypsy’s Warning and his son at stud, The Apache.
In total, he has produced 4 Gr1 winners, and the sire of 40 Stakes horses (wins and places).
Wave, trained by Gavin Van Zyl who trained The Apache to Gr1 victory, is owned in partnership by Lucky Vest 12 CC (Nom: Mr S Govender),Team G Racing (Nom: Mr G H van Zyl), Messrs E A Budlender, P R Rencken & Mrs C C Naidoo. He sold for R100 000 off the 2018 KZN Yearling Sale and earned his connections a BSA bonus of R50 000 for qualifying yearlings sold at BSA sales.
Wave, racing green finished almost three lengths with relative ease and is definitely a horse to watch in the future. He is out of a Miesque’s Approval mare Seaview, this is the family of La Fabulous, Rip Curl and Surf The Net.
Mark Dixon, who very sadly lost his special horse London Call unexpectedly recently, followed in the third race with Sand Queen (also bred by Scotts), winning her third race after placing in both of her previous race starts for owners Messrs Andre Fouche, G A Hauptfleisch & Mrs H Kuhn.
Sand Queen sold for just R30 000 off the 2018 Shongweni Mixed Sale, out of a half-sister to Jungle Sands and Pure Shore. Her dam has produced six winners to date including the recent Sand Path.
Lifetime leading breeders of over 50 years, Scott Bros, are in the process of winding down their breeding operation and are offering their final draft of yearlings directly for sale off of Highdown Stud. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
