Gotta Love Her

Well-bred filly on the up

The Silvano filly Love Supreme rounded off a good day’s racing at Kenilworth on Wednesday when she waltzed in to win the MR 68 Handicap over the mile under Greg Cheyne, and in so doing follow up on her maiden score in September.


Love Supreme’s high-class dam, Thunder Dance

Klawervlei Stud, who bred Love Supreme, race her in partnership with Ridgemont Racing, and this youngster has classic contender written all over her.

The Kosters and Kieswetters are two of South Africa’s leading racing and breeding families and their powerful partnership in Love Supreme promises exciting  things for the Silvano filly on the track – and in the paddock, when that second phase of her career comes round

She is beautifully bred too!

By a champion sire, Love Supreme is out of the dual Gr1 winner, Thunder Dance (Jet Master), who was also trained by Brett Crawford.

In terms of some side interest, Thunder Dance was the first Gr1 winner for Jet Master after the multiple champion sire’s untimely death in November 2011.

She was the third foal and second winner of Fort Wood mare Shadow Dancing, who won four races from 1200m to 1600m during a relatively brief career in the Ian Longmore silks when in the care of Joey Ramsden. Her wins included the Gr1 Cape Fillies Guineas and the Gr1 Majorca Stakes. Shadow Dancing is a half sister to our late leading sire Captain Al.
