Hall Of Fame!

Wylie Hall is off the mark

A Gr1 winning son of triple Australian champion sire, Redoute’s Choice, Cheveley Stud stallion Wylie Hall equalled the feat of contemporary Vercingetorix of a few weeks ago when he got off the mark with his first runner a winner.

His 2yo daughter Wily Lass, the longshot in the small field, made a winning debut for trainer Gavin Smith, who also owns her, in the first at Fairview on Monday.

The pacy galloper took full advantage of apprentice Xola Jacobs’ 4kg claim when she maintained a solid pace in the 800m scurry to hold off the attentions of odds-on favourite Pierina.

Young Jacobs, whose Dad has worked for Gavin Smith for many years, was on holiday in his hometown and was registering his first winner.

Smith said that the winner had shown plenty of pace in her work but that the money for the favourite Pierina had knocked their confidence.

Bred by John and Liz Slade, Wily Lass is out of the Silvano mare Perceptive – an unraced half-sister to Gr2 winners Royal IQ and Mentor.

Wylie Hall, one of 34 G1 winners sired by triple Australian champion sire Redoute’s Choice, was an outstanding performer who banked more than R3.6 million. First past the post in the 2014 Gr1 Vodacom Durban July and won or placed in 15 of 21 outings, with his victories including the Gr1 SA Derby and the Gr1 President’s Champions Challenge.

He made an instant impression with his first crop, with daughter Wylie Wench making R600 000 at the 2018 National Two Year Old Sale.

A half-brother to Gr1 Hong Kong Sprint winner Absolute Champion, Wylie Hall has five lots on offer at the 2019 Cape Premier Yearling Sale including a filly out of Gr3 Flamboyant Stakes winner Queen’s Command and a filly out of Gr2 SA Fillies Nursery star Virgo’s Babe.

    Wylie Hall won the 2014 July in my eyes. Guess he will be better at stud than Legislate too.

  2. Echo says:

    Capetown Noir also had his first runner be a winner. Exciting times ahead with these young stallions.
