Peter Speed Bomber Swoops Again

Betway Gr3 Sycamore Sprint 2024 R

Tony Peter and owner Suzette Viljoen maintained their great form when the progressive speedster One Fell Swoop went all the way in a gutsy performance to win the Betway Gr3 Sycamore Sprint at Turffontein on Saturday.

The daughter of Lancaster Bomber has been astutely placed by Peter, and with regular rider Calvin Habib back in the saddle after missing out on a weight break last time, she turned on the jets and showed great resilience to hold off a determined challenge by the luckless White Pearl and Piere Strydom.

Scoring her second consecutive Gr3 success, One Fell Swoop (5-2) held on stoutly by a quarter length in a time of 67,60 secs for the 1160m.

Stablemate to the runner-0up, Good Queen Bess (16-1) rounded off the trifetcta with a decent effort in third.

Bred by Varsfontein, who also bred Friday’s Listed East Cape Fillies Nursery winner Splicethemainbrace, One Fell Swoop was registering her second stakes success and is a daughter of Drakenstein’s deceased War Front stallion Lancaster Bomber out of the one-time winning Philanthropist mare, Imperadora, a half-sister to champion Legal Eagle.

One Fell Swoop was purchased for R480 000 at the 2022 BSA Cape Yearling Sale and took her stakes bank to R509 125 with her fifth win and 2 places from 9 starts.
