Only a R30 000 purchase off the 2016 KZN Yearling Sale and reselling at James Goodman’s Kilimanjaro Bloodstock Dispersal for R220 000, son of Mogok, The Dazzler finished just a neck off Doosra in the Wolf Power Listed on the weekend.
Trained by Mike De Kock and owned by Messrs L M Nestadt, M A Currie, M F de Kock & J R van der Linden in partnership, The Dazzler bred by Scott Bros has been consistent – a three time winner from 14 runs with six places and almost R300 000 earned.
Since changing stables after being sold, his last five starts have seen four places and two wins.
Bred by the Scott Bros, The Dazzler is out of Glamorous Guest by Northern Guest, from the dam line of Kolkata, Glamour Boy and Gaultier. The Dazzler is a half-brother to a 5-time winner Hollywood Guest.
The dam has produced three winners to date.
Mogok has been a consistent sire producing Black Types in just about each crop. He is also the sire of four Gr1 winners, including overseas in America with Gypsy’s Warning and The Apache crossing the line first in the Gr1 Arlington Million.
Mike De Kock has trained two Grade 1 winners by Mogok – Wild One and The Apache.
The Dazzler is definitely one to watch.
