A well performed son of KwaZulu-Natal-based stallion Badger’s Drift was recently crowned Champion 3yo colt in Kenya.
Just Bluffing ran a brilliant race to win the Gr1 Kenyan Derby over 2400m in April this year and followed up with a terrific performance, taking the second cheque 2nd in the St. Ledger run over 2800m.
Just Bluffing is out of the Jallad mare Medusa and his proud owner David Armstrong and trainers’ Nur Nuno & Texuanze Karugu, were understandably over the moon on receiving the award and recognition.
Just Bluffing’s sire Badger’s Drift stands at Wayne & Alexia Kobusch’s Wood-Moore Manor Stud in Mooi River, for a live foal fee of R10 000. Cover is available free to black-type mares.
Badger’s Drift is a leading sire of percentage winners to runners and the sire of Gr1 winner Ivory Trail, Gr 3 winner and outstanding Cape stayer Hospitality,who is also out of a Jallad mare, as well as Stakes winners, Imperialist, Lord Badger, Act of Supremeacy, Golden Bow and Like Paradise.
Badger’s Drift is a triple Gr 1 winner, including The Classic where he set a new course record, the SA Derby and the Daily News 2000. He placed in the Gr 1 Cape Derby and Cape Guineas, as well as the Gr 2 Newmarket Guineas and Elevation Stakes.
A R500 000 record-setting yearling, he earned in excess of R1,8 million.
He certainly offers South African breeders great value and many exciting options.
