Warm White Night Arrives

New stallion off the mark

Warm White Night

Warm White Night (Western Winter x Thousand Nights )

Klawervlei’s Gone West stallion Warm White Night delivered the goods at Kenilworth on Saturday when he produced a winner from his very first runner from his first crop. The Glen Puller-trained filly Harlem Shake shook off her rivals to win going away in perfect weather conditions.

Her sire Warm White Night is a handsome son of the champion ill-fated Western Winter and was a multiple Gr1 winning sprinter in an illustrious career on the track.

He raced in the familiar Jooste Bok silks and retired to stud in 2011 with all the credentials to make it as a stallion.

Warm White Night won 7 races (five Group races) from 1000m to 1200m in the care of Charles Laird and earned R1,6 million in stakes.

His natural speed earned him dazzling peak victories in the Gr1 Gold Medallion and Gr2 SA Nursery at 2, as well as the prestigious Gr1 Cape Flying Championship at 4.

Warm White Night’s grandsire is the great sire Gone West, whose legacy as a sire of sires is outstanding.

Successful sire sons and grandsons of Gone West include champion US sire Elusive Quality, champion SA sire Western Winter, leading sires Mr Greeley, Zafonic, Grand Slam and Zamindar, top-class local sire Count Dubois, and current leading US sire Speightstown.

Warm White Night is out of the eight-time winning stakes performer, Thousand Nights, a daughter of Foveros out of the Capriole mare, Cruive.

A versatile mare, Thousand Nights produced champion Highland Night, as well as stakes winners Night Watch, Prince Asad and Vogue.

The combination of trainer Glen Puller and his jockey son Chris are in a hot streak of form and there were early whispers about Harlem Shake to win the opening (programmed rather later than usual) juvenile 800m scurry of the Cape season.

The pretty Klawervlei Stud bred bay started at a generous 11 to 2 and was allowed to relax early.

When called upon for an effort, she produced an impressive turn of foot to burst through down the middle and cut down the leaders to win going away by a half length in a time of 49,86 secs.

Harlem Shake is out of the Australian-bred Snippets mare Malakeh and fetched R150 000 on the Cape Premier Yearling Sale Book 2.

Warm White Night stands at Klawervlei Stud for a fee of R15 000.
