Global View stands this season for live foal fee of R8000

Ascot Stud’s well performed resident stallion Global View enjoyed a purple patch this past week with four winners in four days.

Remarkably, Global View’s four winners won from distances of 1000 metres to 2600 metres, with the beautifully-bred stallion producing winners on both turf and polytrack, and at all of Turffontein, Hollywoodbets Greyville and Fairview in this spell.

First of the four Global View runners to score was the Alec Laird trained Rule Book, who landed Tuesday’s Next Turffontein Racemeeting Saturday 7 October Middle Stakes (2600m) in convincing fashion.

Under Philasande Mxoli, Rule Book turned for home midfield before staying on gamely to score by a length and three-quarters.

Bred by Ascot Stud, Rule Book, who is out of the Medicean mare Reputable, has now four wins to his credit and bigger and better things could be on the cards for this gelding.

Global View struck again the very next day when his Ascot Stud bred daughter Global Secret scored on Hollywoodbets Greyville’s Polytrack surface.

Under a front running ride from Nirvan Nastili, the Paul Lafferty trained mare dug down deep to hold on and score by a neck.

Out of the Tiger Ridge mare Kwacha, Global Secret was making it back to back wins with the five-year-old having won at the same track back in May.

It was more of the same at the Vaal on Thursday, where Global View’s three-year-old daughter Global Thunder romped home, under Muzi Yeni, to land the Betway Tote Rewards Club Graduation Plate, over 1200 metres, by two and three-quarter lengths.

Benefitting from the removal of blinkers, Global Thunder claimed her second win with her score on Thursday, with the smart filly having contested both the Gr1 Allan Robertson Championship and G3 Pretty Polly Stakes last season.

The Corrie Lensley trained Global Thunder, who was bred by Beaumont Stud, is out of the Kahal mare Reine Tonnerre.

Her sire’s success continued at Fairview on Friday when Global View gelding Global Force captured the Back The Boks Novice Plate, over 1000 metres, for Gavin Smith and Louis Mxothwa.

Bred by the Missing U Syndicate, three-year-old Global Force is out of the Silvano mare Kumiko and is closely related to the Global View sired Listed East Cape Fillies Nursery winner Sound Check.

This is not the first time that Global View has shown his versatility.

His progeny also include East Cape champion Global Drummer, winner of the 2020 Listed East Cape Nursery over 1200 metres, and Decorated. The latter won the Gr3 Track And Ball Derby over 2400m in 2022 .

Another son of Global View, last season’s Gr1 Daily News 2000 runner up Dave The King, currently ranks among the leading early fancies for the upcoming Gr1 Betway Summer Cup, while Global View is also the sire of Ideal View, the winner of the 2023 Castle Tankard.

South Africa’s Leading First Season Sire of 2019-2020, Global View is a son of the legendary late sire Galileo, whose other successful sire sons include New Approach, Teofilo, Australia, Nathaniel, Churchill and Frankel. The latter has been responsible for a remarkable nine Gr1 winners this year thus far, with Frankel’s top-flight winners in 2023 including the British classic winners Chaldean and Soul Sister.

Out of the Storm Cat mare Egyptian Queen, Global View is bred on the hugely successful Galileo/Storm Cat cross responsible for fellow successful sires Churchill and Gleneagles among others.

Global View stands this season for a live foal fee of R8000.
