Former Bloodstock South African buy Capetown Noir made the perfect start to his stud career when his very first runner was a winner!

Capetown Noir 2yo filly Brandina made a winning debut at Fairview on Friday, when scoring a cosy, one and a quarter length win over 800m for trainer Alan Greeff, jockey Teaque Gould and owner-breeders Piemonte Stud.

Friday’s winner, who qualifies for the BSA added value bonus of R50 000, is out of the Var mare Bedouin –a winning half-sister to G2 Senor Santa Handicap winner Fair Brutus and to the G3 Tommy Hotspur Handicap third Gypsey Caravan.

Her sire Capetown Noir was a R1 000 000 buy from the 2011 National Yearling Sale, when sold under the name of Custodian.
Sent into training with Dean Kannemeyer, Capetown Noir won eight times and earned over R2.7 million during his four season campaign. Among the bay’s principal victories were the 2012 G1 Cape Guineas, 2013 G1 Investec Cape Derby and 2014 G1 L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate, with Capetown Noir also landing the 2013 G3 Matchem Stakes at Durbanville.

Capetown Noir, who stands at the Summerhill Stud, is a son of triple champion sire Western Winter, whose other sire sons include the hugely successful Drakenstein Stud resident and triple Equus Champion What A Winter.

The triple G1 winner, who was bred by Lammerskraal Stud, is out of Akinfeet- South Africa’s Broodmare Of The Year of 2012-2013.
