The good looking filly was bred by S Bunwarie and is out of the three-time winning Cataloochee mare, Awesome Beauty.

She had improved steadily from 4th on her polytrack debut to 3rd at her last start, before bounding home to register a good win over the turf 1200m in a time of 70,36 seecs.

The first son of Undbridled’s Song to stand here, Noble Tune a half-brother to dual Gr1 winner Honor Code, and stood his first season in 2014. His first crop are now 2yo’s.

Bred on the scross of Fappiano x Storm Cat that produced 2015 Triple Crown winner, American Pharoah, Noble Tune’s sire-line is  unique to the South African studbook as Fappiano is now considered a new branch of the Mr Prospector sire-line

Noble Tune placed second in the Gr1 Breeders Cup Juvenile on turf, and won a Gr2 and Gr3 amongst his outstanding efforts.

He stands at Rathmor for a fee of R25 000.
