|Backworth Stud: Exciting Fillies By Horse Chestnut And Miesque’s Approval|
Horse Chestnut (SAF) – Exclusive Honour (SAF) by Exclusive Patriot (USA)
We all know the legacy of Horse Chestnut, arguably the best racehorse to run in South Africa in the past 40 years, and South Africa’s only ever Triple Crown winner! In a short, but amazing career, Horse Chestnut won nine of his ten career starts and earned in excess of $470,000.
His achievements included Horse of the Year in 1999; Champion 3-year-old Colt and Champion Male Stayer; won from 1000m in 57.3 secs on his debut to 2450m – the SA Derby (Gr.1) by 10 lengths. He was the first three-year-old in 54 years to win the J&B Met (Gr.1) by 8 lengths and he won the Cape Guineas (Gr.1) by 7.5 lengths. In his only start on foreign soil he won the Gr.3 Broward Handicap in Gulfstream Park by 5.5 lengths.
