Khaya’s Cape Of Good Hope

Another son of The United States raises his hand

The Kannemeyer, Khaya Stables and Keagan de Melo combination celebrated one of their most memorable Met days at Hollywoodbets Kenilworth on Saturday when recent maiden winner USA’S Hope crowned their success in the Pongracz Gr1 Cape Flying Championships with a courageous victory in the R200 000 World Pool The Invitational.

Allowed to start at 10-1 in a fair quality field, USA’S Hope built up smartly and plugged away doggedly down the inside rail to register an encouraging post-maiden win as he held off the year older Swift Action (25-1) by a head in a time of 72,38 secs.

A R400 000 purchase by Form Bloodstock off the 2021 BSA  August 2yo Sale, USA’S Hope is a good looking chestnut and stepped up smartly from his recent maiden win to make it 2 wins from just 4 starts and stakes of R200 000.

Bred by Wicklow Stud, USA’S Hope is another promising son of Moutonshoek’s Galileo stallion The United States.

He is out of the four-time winning Trippi mare, Mysterio.
