Well-related Var filly's overdue first stakes success

The powerful combination of trainer Paul Peter and jockey Warren Kennedy were on the feature winner’s podium again at Turffontein on Saturday when the well-related Var filly Way Of The World went all the way to win the R100 000 Listed Syringa Handicap.

Cracking her first and long overdue stakes success, Way Of The World overcame her wide draw in the mile contest and went all the way at 8-1 to fend off the late challenge of favourite Wylie Wench (4-1) by a length in a time of 98,05 secs.

Described by trainer Paul Peter as enjoying a ‘beautiful ride’ by Warren Kennedy, the consistent galloper clocked her seventh career victory in the silks of Advocate Altus Joubert.

Paul Peter thanked Advocate Joubert for entrusting him with the target of black-type for the beautifully bred filly.

The Ditro Stud-bred winner has now registered 7 wins with 5 places from 20 starts for stakes of R406 275.

She was sold by Paarl Diamant Estate as agent, and purchased by Riethuiskraal Stud for R230 000, at the 2018 BSA National 2yo Sale.

The winner is a daughter of Var (Forest Wildcat) out of the US-bred Street Cry mare, Crimson Lane – a daughter of SA Gr1 winner Crimson Palace. The latter was bred by Advocate Joubert and is a daughter of Elliodor out of the Northern Guest mare Perfect Guest.

She raced in Dubai for Team Valor and raced thereafter under the Godolphin banner. She finished a close fourth in the Gr1 Dubai Duty Free and then won the Gr3 Totepool Middleton Stakes in England.

She won the Gr1 Beverly D Stakes under Frankie Dettori at Arlington Park before retiring.
