The death of Lancaster Bomber looks to have been a big one for the South African industry. No fewer than 19 winners emerged from that son of War Front’s first crop in 2022-2023, with Lancaster Bomber’s first crop stars headed by Listed City Of Cape Town Summer Juvenile Stakes winner Rascova and brilliant Listed Irridescence Stakes heroine Beach Bomb. Other promising sorts hailing from Lancaster Bomber’s first crop include G1 Gold Medallion third place getter Guy Gibson and Red Bomber, a winner of two of his first three starts.
Summerview Stud are fortunate enough to be offering two choicely bred fillies from the last crop of this talented stallion at the 2023 August Two Year Old Sale. Miss Munroe (Lot 83) is a filly out of a mare who won five, and this filly hails from the same female line as such standout fillies as Imperious Sue, Imperious Star and Real Princess, as well as current star sprinter Gimme A Prince.
Lancaster Bomber is also the sire of the well named Battle Of Britain (Lot 105), a half-sister to three winners including the smart fillies Civil Rights and Kind Judy, with this filly out of a stakes placed three-parts sister to G1 SA Derby third Noble Secret.
Other attractive prospects in this draft include Red Sea Hills (Lot 29), a Master Of My Fate half-brother to multiple stakes winner Matador Man, Pinatubo (Lot 79), an Erupt filly whose granddam is French stakes winner Tala, and Querari filly Q For Love (Lot 278). The latter, who is from the same female line as champions Jay Peg and Kochka to name but two, is a half-sister to four winners including the stakes placed Green Lantern.
Summerview’s draft can be viewed from Block E at the TBA complex in Germiston.
