Piemonte-bred Brandina by Capetown Noir has made it two wins from only three starts – her only other place was third by a head in the Listed Tattersalls Summer Juvenile Stakes at Kenilworth.

Brandina was bought back for just R20 000 at the 2018 KZN Yearling Sale – TBA Chairman Lee, and Dino Scribante, offer everything they breed at auction and retain whichever horses have not sold at sales.

Raced by breeder Lee Scribante and his brother, the filly is out of Var mare Bedouin, a half-sister to Gr2 winner Fair Brutus bred by Yellow Star Stud. This is also the family of Grand Format and National Dance.
