Ambiance Stud’s Cleverly-Bred Athletes

At Hollywoodbets Kenilworth on Thursday

Dr Marianne Thompson has cleverly bred champions over the years, focussing on the unique physical attributes of sire and dam to produce athletes that do Ambiance Stud proud on the racetrack.

She sends four yearlings to market at the Cape Racing Winter Yearling Sale, to be staged at Hollywoodbets Kenilworth on Thursday.

Lot 11

Lot 11 is a Rafeef filly out of the Jet Master mare, Hi Jessie, who is a half-sister to Gr1 Cape Derby winner, The Sheik and the Champion Older Sprinter in SA of 2002/23, Al Nitak. These full brothers form key parts of a renowned Ambiance family. Second dam, Jessamine won the Gr2 Gerald Rosenberg.

Lot 37

Lot 37 is Love Abounds, an Erupt filly out of venerable Al Mufti mare Love Galore. The second dam Lexington Love, threw Cataloochee, Champion 3YO Sprinter in 2004/5 in SA, another high-class product of Ambiance Stud.

Lot 89

Irish stallion, Oratorio has a filly called Last Ovation ex Angie going through the ring as Lot 89. Angie is a half-sister to Van Halen, Gr1 winner of the Gold Medallion as a juvenile and the Gr1 Mercury Sprint as a mature speedball. Third dam, Drummer Girl foaled the Champion 2YO Filly in SA in 2004/5, Rock Opera in a deep page laden with Black Type.

Lot 107

Cockney Pride took out the Gr2 Golden Slipper and the daughter of Querari has a Vercingetorix colt on offer. The sire is causing a sensation with 33 Stakes Winners from 352 runners, including eight Gr1 winners. Lot 107 is bound to cause a frisson of excitement when entering the ring.
