Clifton Stud resident Running Brave, owned by her owner and trainer Fanie Bronkhorst in partnership with Bryan and Taryn Spong, has been confirmed in foal to Gr1 producing Act Of War.
The multiple Group winning daughter of Brave Tin Soldier who experienced narrow defeats to finish second in the Gr1 Empress Club Stakes (twice) and Summer Cup to potentially get her well deserved Gr1 status, won the Gr2 Gold Bracelet twice and the KZN Breeders Million Mile, as well as the London News Gr3.
She won 8 races in total and five Stakes Places, to earn over R1,9-million for her connections.
A R30 000 astute buy off the 2017 National 2YO Sale, her Vercingetorix half sister was purchased by Greg Bortz at Nationals this year for R700 000, named Miracle In Motion.
Out of Jet Master mare Movingandgrooving, this is the female line of Love Is In The Air, Silver Flyer, Jet Jamboree and O Tamara and Running Brave certainly has the height and size of her champion broodmare sire.
Act Of War is the sire of Triple Tiara and multiple Gr1 winner War Of Athena, Gr1 sprint winner Battle Force and Gr1 sprint runner up Bartholdi.
Act Of War enjoyed an exemplary full book in 2021.
