Bush Hill Stud’s son of King Of Kings, King’s Chapel, has had three winners in a little over a week – including Rhumba Magic who did it in a devastating fashion to win by over seven lengths. Of the three winners, two were bred by Scott Bros.

Beginning with Raspberry Lips at Flamingo for Corne Spies, the big two year old filly bred by Scott Bros was unsold at the 2015 Suncoast KZN Yearling Sale, won over 800m by half a length under Ryan Munger. She finished second in her previous start for trainer Corne Spies over 800m.
King’s Chapel also had a second over the same course with Rathmor-bred Kartouche over 1400m, who has now placed twice from just three starts.

Meadow Magic’s half-brother by King’s Chapel named Rhumba Magic, won by a blazing seven lengths at Fairview over 2200m. Owned by Robin Scott and trained by Alan Greef, the three year old colt has placed four times previously over distances of 1600m – 2400m. Meadow Magic by Mogok was a winner of the Gr2 Emerald Cup, out of Meadow Rhumba by Shoe Danzig.

Cambridge Choir made it three for King’s Chapel at Turffontein yesterday, winning the second race of the day before the meeting was abandoned due to the weather. The three year old filly bred by Fay Megan Crocker and owned by Miss C Vlahakis, is trained by D Little. After placing three times previously, Cambridge Choir got up to win over 1600m from Right Approach filly Rose Of Castille and Dynasty filly Winning Sister.

With limited progeny left overseas in New Zealand, another two winners emerged for King’s Chapel at the beginning of February – both five year old chestnut mares, as Quartet got up to get a fourth career win over a 1400m feature race, and Notionannagins also won well – her second career win over 1400m.

A 10-time winner and New Zealand’s Horse Of The Year, King’s Chapel stands at Bush Hill Stud and commanded a fee of R15 000 for the 2015 season.

*update: Malak El Moolook, a son of King’s Chapel, placed third in the Gr2 Gauteng Guineas yesterday just two lengths off Abishiri.
