One Way Or Another stamped himself as the latest graduate from the 2019 BSA National 2YO Sale to impress when he made a runaway winning debut at the Vaal on Thursday.
Under jockey Randall Simons, the three-year-old Vercingetorix colt was always up with the pace and pulled clear to win by five and three quarter lengths over 1200m.
Bred by Maine Chance Farms, the Roy Magner trained One Way Or Another is out of the Jet Master mare One Way Ticket. The latter, who won twice over 1600m, is a full-sister to Gr3 Final Fling Stakes runner up Mystery Dame, the dam of Equus Champion Lady In Black.
One Way Or Another was a R400 000 buy for owner Mr Chung from the 2019 Emperors Palace National 2YO Sale.
His Jebel Hatta winning sire has several promising three-year-olds representing him this season, among them Gr1 Allan Robertson Championship/G3 Strelitzia Stakes winner Vernichey.
Vercingetorix has 11 lots on the upcoming Emperors Palace National 2YO Sale, with his draft including:
-a filly out of a half-sister to Gr1 Daily News 2000 runner up Rake’s Chestnut
-a colt out of a Danehill Dancer daughter of Cape Fillies Guineas winner Igreja
-a colt out of Gold Circle Oaks third Saltwater Girl
-a filly out of a winning daughter of champion Scented Royal
-a half-brother to Cape Of Good Hope Nursery third Mr Crumford
-a full-brother to the very talented Astrix
