Ascot Stud’s young Galileo stallion Global View got off the mark with his very first runner when his daughter Delicasea started at short odds to win on debut at Fairview on Friday.
The athletic filly was bred by Ascot Stud and is raced in partnership by Dr Ashley Parker, with first time owners Brent Keevy and Southern Kings Chairman Loyiso Dotwana.
Delicasea is out of the five-time winning Var mare, Caviar and went through the ring at the 2019 BSA National Yearling Sale for R200 000.
Greg Cheyne earned an easy commission as the Alan Greeff-trained filly quickened well in the small field. She won going away with the assistance of a tailwind in the 900m mixed Maiden Juvenile Plate and clocked 50,4 secs to win unextended.
A powerhouse with a good action, jockey Greg Cheyne said that the winner’s laid back attitude was her strong point
A top-class galloper, Global View won graded races at both two and three and earned just under $500 000 during his racing career.
Victorious in the Gr3 Generous Stakes at two, Global View trained on well to claim the Gr2 American Turf Stakes (a race also won by champion sire Kitten’s Joy) as a three-year-old, and he also finished runner up, to Breeders’ Cup winner Bobby’s Kitten, in the 2014 Penn Mile.
He is one of more than 300 stakes winners sired by the world’s premier stallion Galileo.
Bred on the same Galileo/Storm Cat cross as Gleneagles, Global View is out of the Storm Cat mare Egyptian Queen – a half-sister to Gr2 San Felipe Stakes winner A.P. Warrior, and a daughter of Round Tower Stakes winner Warrior Queen. This is also the family of Green Tune and Storm Bird.
Global View made an instant impression with his first yearlings in 2019 fetching up to R1 300 000.
He has four lots on offer at the 2020 Cape Premier Yearling Sale.
Global View stood for a fee of R20 000 this season.
