Vercingetorix’s very progressive daughter Celtic Beauty became her sire’s 35th stakes winner when she won the R150 000 Listed World Sports Betting Scarlet Lady at Hollywoodbets Scottsville on Sunday.

The Tony Rivalland-trained three-year-old was given a superb ride by Richard Fourie in the 1750m contest as he tracked pacesetter Ballroom Bliss all the way around.

The pace was pedestrian early on, but Fourie had judged things well and he brought Celtic Beauty to lead at the 350m and she stayed on powerfully.

The 3yo Celtic Beauty started at 5-2 and held on well to beat the determined Lucky Miss (16-) by a neck in a time of 105,69 secs.

Barend Botes’ Ivy League (13-2) was a half length back in third.

Bred by Klawervlei Stud, Celtic Beauty has now won three of five starts with two places for stakes of R213 750.

The filly, who races in the familiar vieux rose, pink and green of veteran owner Mary Liley, is out of the Rip Van Winkle mare Killer Woman and was a R625 000 purchase from the 2022 KZN Yearling Sale
