Backworth’s beautifully bred stallion Talk Of The Town, standing at Avontuur Stud in the Cape, got off the mark as a sire with his first juvenile winner under his belt for trainer Alson Ndzilana.
Based at Randjesfontein, it was the first debut winner for trainer Alson Ndzilana, a former assistant to Joey Ramsden and Mike de Kock.
Talk Of The Town showed huge promise, winning three of his five starts before injury curtailed what was anticipated to be a glittering racing career.
Aptly named Famous Lady, the debut winning filly is out of Lady Val by High Chapparal bred by Kilimanjaro Bloodstock.
Talk Of The Town by multiple Gr1 producing sire Var is bred by Eston-based stud Backworth, out of a Street Cry mare Street Wise.
It is a leading female line, and includes the likes of Redoute’s Choice and Manhattan Rain under the third dam.
