Summerhill-bred star filly Takingthepeace lived up to expectations to swoop through the field and add the Gr3 Victory Moon Stakes to her record.
The daughter of Visionaire bred by Summerhill Stud, out of Lisa-Anne by Rambo Dancer was sitting four lengths off the leader at one point and made up ground quickly, passing Sabina’s Dynasty and Cash Time with ease to win the Gr3 under KZN jockey Warren Kennedy over 1800m.
She managed to annhilate the likes of Liege, Dawn Assault, Like A Panther, French Navy and Deo Juvente in the process.
She is now a 6-time winner, including the Gr1 SA Fillies Classic and Gr2 Gauteng Fillies Guineas and a nominee of several categories for the upcoming KZN Breeders Awards, taking place 1 December at Fordoun.
Takingthepeace does have an ownership update as Craig and Ross Kieswetter of Ridgemont Highlands have bought into the partnership of Michael Shea, Murray Makepeace and Matthew De Kock.
Her Duke Of Marmalade half-brother called The Sandwich Man, an outstanding colt at the recent BSA Ready To Run Sale sold to the Fortune’s for R1-million.
This the the female line of Well Dressed that also produced #kznbred Gr1 winner Brave Mary, who was purchased by Team Valor and exported to France.
#kznbred Takingthepeace has had 13 starts for six wins and five places, earning R 1,751,125 in stakes. Not bad for a R280 000 purchase!
