Murray Makepeace, one of the co-owners of star #kznbred mare Takingthepeace, has confirmed on social media that the Summerhill-bred daughter of Visionaire is in foal at Ridgemont Highlands to European Time Form Rated 133, Canford Cliffs.
Takingthepeace, out of Lisa-Anne by Rambo Dancer, won the Gr1 SA Fillies Classic and Gr2 Gauteng Guineas, as well as the Gr3 Victory Moon Stakes. She took 2 legs of the renowned Triple Tiara, and placed in one of the legs.
Canford Cliffs was a Champion 3yo miler and Champion Older Male, winning 5 Gr1’s in a row amongst his 7 wins.
#kznbred Racemares that have retired to stud have produced enormous success at some of the South Africa’s leading nurseries.
Amongst them recently is Spiced Gold, a Gr1 winning daughter of Kahal bred by the Crawfords of Greenhill Farm, the dam of Drakenstein-bred Gr1 winner, Chimichuri Run, whilst Beach Beauty recently produced her first winner. Captain Of All, last years 2yo national Champion sire, is out of a #kznbred Fard mare Serious Side, bred by Robert Smith, whilst one of SA’s super star exports Variety Club is also out of a #kznbred mare.
Takingthepeace has a Willow Magic half-brother on offer as Lot 79 at the upcoming Emperors Palace Ready To Run Sale from Summerhill Stud, named Thamsamqa. This is the female line of Brave Mary and African Appeal, amongst others.
Congratulations to the connections of Takingthepeace!
