The Highlands bred gelding is out of the one-time winning Tapit mare Gin Rummy, who produced the Snaith-trained one-time winner from five starts to date, Ladder Man (Twice Over).

A R180 000 KZN Yearling Sale graduate, Juniper Lane is by the 2005 Gr1 Travers Stakes, Flower Alley who earned over $2 million in stakes on the track. His first SA crop yearlings sold for up to R1,5 million.

A half-brother to a pair of Gr1 winners, and from the same family as the great sire Lyphard, Flower Alley has 40 stakes horses to his name thus far, headed by champions I’ll Have Another, Lukes Alley and My Wandy’s Gal, as well as the Gr1 winners Bullards Alley and Lilacs And Lace.

He has the distinction of being the only sire of a Kentucky Derby winner to stand in South Africa.
