Marshall Rules The World

City Of Cape Town Gr3 Cape Of Good Hope Nursery

A master at prepping classy 2yo’s, Vaughan Marshall’s SA Champions Season prospects brightened considerably at Hollywoodbets Kenilworth on Saturday when the One World colt One Stripe dominated matters to win the R1 million City Of Cape Town Gr3 Cape Of Good Hope Nursery in the the fashion of a decent sort.

It was a particularly special race for the veteran trainer as his Captain Al champion One World celebrated a maiden graded stakes success in the process.

The R1,4 million sales topper at the 2023 Cape Racing Ready To Run And Unbroken Two Year Old Sale, One Stripe (28-10) made it two on the trot when he stormed clear off the false rail under Bernard Fayd’herbe to beat Winds Of Change (11-2) by 1,25 lengths to make it a Drakenstein-bred exacta.

The winner clocked 70,59 secs for the 1200m.

The shock Cape Racing Sales Cape Slipper winner Little Ballerina (20-1) confirmed her form, staying on a further 0,20 lengths back to be the first filly home.

The newly blinkered Lion Rampart (7-1) was best of the rest to round off the quartet.

The favourite Roman Agent showed good pace but faded late to run just over 5 lengths off in midfield.

One Stripe races for Rakesh Sewgoolam and took his stakes bank to R692 313 with his second win and a place from just three starts.

Bred by Drakenstein Stud, he is out of the three-time winning Silvano mare Silver Stripe, who stayed well and won up to 2450m.

So a momentous day for Drakenstein based first season sire One World who was Equus Champion Older Male of 2019-2020, registering ten wins from just 14 starts, capped by a sensational win in the 2020 Gr1 Sun Met.

One World has 11 lots on Sunday’s BSA Cape Yearling Sale.
