Global View Second Crop Stakes Score

Ascot's Galileo sire in the news

The Ascot Stud-bred Global View produced the first stakes winner from his second crop when daughter Sound Check kept the Listed East Cape Fillies Nursery trophy on home soil at Fairview on Friday.

She caused a minor upset to follow up on her maiden success earlier this month to win the 2yo feature.

The Alan Greeff trained Sound Check (16-1) made it two wins from just four starts, when staying on gamely to post a three-parts of a length win in 69,93 secs, under a strong ride from Teaque Gould.

She got the better of Gavin Smith’s debut winner Waymaker (17-2), who maintained the recent purple patch of the Louis The King progeny, when she held on for second.

The favourite, Snaith visitor Europeana (13-10) was never in the hunt and ran third, a further length back.

The nine horse field was reduced to seven with Grace Lightning (intractable) and Pot Sox (injured) being withdrawn at the start.

A R160 000 buy from the 2020 National Sale, Sound Check was bred by Ascot Stud out of the National Assembly mare Rexana.

A son of Galileo, and graded stakes winner at both two and three, Global View made a tremendous start with his first two-year-olds last season and was South Africa’s Leading First Season Sire of 2019-2020.

The sire of Eastern Cape star, and five time stakes winner, Global Drummer, Global View has 19 lots on offer at this year’s National Yearling Sale, including a colt (Lot 270) out of Eastern Cape star Stormy Appeal, a half-sister (Lot 323) to Golden Loom Handicap winner Bold Ransom, and a half-sister (Lot 342) to Gr1 Computaform Sprint winner Pacific Trader.
