The beautifully named Falcon Strike bred by Bush Hill Stud, won impressively on debut at the Vaal on Tuesday at odds of 40/1 for trainer Robyn Klaasen.

A R65 000 purchase off the November 2YO Sale, the three year old colt who shares his flashy chestnut good looks of his parternal Grandsire, New Approach, is by New Predator out of Luxurious Jet by Jet Master and was ridden by Chase Maujean.

He went clear to win by a length for owners Messrs Koos Nkale of MK’s Pride fame, and Mr S Pooe who has enjoyed Gr3 success with another Bush Hill Bred, Miss Daisy.

An athletic chestnut, Falcon Strike hails from the family of Orkney Islands, and his second dam is Daddy’s Darling, whose 6 wins included the Gr2 SA Oaks Futurity.

New Predator relocated to the Cape mid year and sadly passed away after an accident in his paddock, and continues to produce impressive progeny and many winning and debut.

Well done to all concerned.
