Classy Global View’s Nursery Dominance

Ascot Stud sire's first stakes winner & nabs the exacta

Ascot Stud’s promising Galileo horse Global View produced his first stakes winner when his first-crop son Global Drummer won the R85 000 Listed East Cape Nursery at Fairview on Friday – the first feature after lockdown.

In landing the spoils in the delayed East Cape Nursery, the gelded Global Drummer accounted for another son of Global View in Fireview, with the latter taking second place.

Trained by Hollywoodbets sponsored Gavin Smith, the Ascot Stud bred Global Drummer made it win number two from just three starts when romping home to a clear-cut two and a quarter length win over paternal half-brother Fireview in a time of 69,23 secs.

He was ridden by Stallone Naidoo and races in the silks of longstanding owner Vicky Veeramootoo.

A smart winner on debut, Global Drummer was a R250 000 buy from the 2019 Emperors Palace National Yearling Sale.

Global Drummer is one of four first-crop winners for Global View thus far.

He has won 2 of 3 starts for stakes of R85 800. The winner was bred by Ascot Stud out of the four-time winning Kilconnel mare, Royal Drummer.

It’s been a solid return week for Global View – he is sire of five recent runners to finish  in the money, with his promising two-year-old daughter Tazanite Queen finishing second, over 1000m, at Kenilworth on debut.

Global View, South Africa’s Leading First Crop Sire by both stakes and individual winners, is the maiden first crop stallion this season to supply a stakes winner.

Global View, a graded stakes winning son of the world’s premier sire Galileo, has an outstanding draft of 22 yearlings on offer at the 2020 Emperors Palace National Yearling Sale.
