New Predator looks to be living up to the precociousness his progeny had shown as youngsters, reeling off his second winner which was on debut to boot at Fairview on Friday afternoon.

From three runners, New Predator has now had two winners and another place – all three progeny currently racing have yet to be out of the money in all of their starts to date!

Just a R30 000 graduate off the August 2YO Sale, War Launch bred by Mr Laurence Wernars, who owned and raced New Predator to much success won on debut over 1000m for trainer Sharon Kotzen and owners Mrs D Jithoo, Dr KG and Mr GM Bakos, Mr GM Kotzen, Mr Jack Swart, Sharon Kotzen Racing (Pty) Ltd and SA Punters Forum Syndicate (Pty) Ltd (Nom: Mr Deva Govender). The winning connections also took home a BSA cheque for R100 000 for their Maiden Juvenile Plate sales incentives.

Consigned by Bush Hill Stud acting as agent at the sale, War Launch is inbred to super sire Fastnet Rock, out of Street Sense mare Monarch Games.

Multiple Gr2 winner and Gr1 placed New Predator stands at Blue Sky Thoroughbreds.

Bruce Le Roux reports that the son of New Approach only received approximately 30 mares for the past season, but if his current stats continue the way he has started that will be likely to change this coming year.

Well done to all concerned.
