Blue Sky Thoroughbred resident sire New Predator is off the starting blocks, producing his first winner at Hollywoodbets Greyville on the turf with Clifton-bred Predator’s Feast from just her third race. She had placed in both previous starts over 800m and 1000m.
Just a R30 000 graduate off the KZN Yearling Sale which took place back at Suncoast, the juvenile filly posted a facile victory for trainer Yadav Singh and owner Mr Vinolin Patchappen to also take home the Bloodstock South Africa Juvenile Bonus of R100 000 – not a bad return of investment!
Out of Western Winter mare Winter Feast, she is a half sister to three winners including Dandolo and Snow Tune, from the family of Festive Forever and Fearless.
New Predator is the first and only son of New Approach at stud in South Africa.
Raced in South Africa for owner Laurence Wernars and trainer Johan Janse Van Vuuren, New Predator accumulated two Gr2 wins and defeated multiple Gr1 winners in his wake on multiple occasions, including Vodacom Durban July winners Legislate and The Conglomerate, Gold Onyx and Mac De Lago, multiple Gr1 winners Abashiri, Rabada, Deo Juvente. Further to this his speed was reiterated by him defeating the Gr1 winning sprinters Rafeef, Will Pays, Attenborough and Talktothestars.
His race record included the Gr2 Drill Hall Stakes at Hollywoodbets Greyville and the Gr2 Charity Mile at Turffontein, along with his Gr1 places in the Horse Chestnut Stakes (twice) and the Mercury Sprint.
Standing 16.1 hands and out of a Fastnet Rock mare, New Predator stands for a fee of R10 000 + Vat.
