Visionaire’s beautiful grey daughter, a half-sister to No Worries, has won her fourth start for the Joey Ramsden racing stable at Kenilworth yesterday over 1600m, going away to win impressively by almost three lengths and earning from all four of her starts.

The filly named Malher De Branco (formerly Yoruba) is owned by Mr B P Finch, Mrs K Finch & Ridgemont Stud (Nom: Mr Craig Carey), and is Visionaire’s most expensive yearling to date – she sold for R1,4million at the 2014 National Yearling Sale, bred and consigned by Summerhill Stud.

She jumped from a fourth draw to win under Bernard Fayd’Herbe to win from Playboy Buddy and Lets Go Get It.

Her big chestnut Gr1 King’s Bishop Stakes winning sire Visionaire was crowned national Champion Freshman Sire for the last racing season and has already earned a double at Turffontein today with Redaire in the first and Heaps Of Fun in the fifth race.

No Worries, by Kahal and bred by Summerhill Stud, is owned by Brian Burnard and a winner of the Gr2 Joburg Spring Challenge, as well as the KZN Breeders Million Mile. He notably placed second by a nose to Vercingetorix in the Gr1 Daily News 2000, with Capetown Noir and Wylie Hall chasing him down.

He went on to place fourth behind Heavy Metal in the Vodacom Durban July, and finished two lengths off Futura in the Gr1 Beach Beauty Champions Cup, amongst his many Group places.

Well done to all concerned.
