Gr3 Winter Nursery

Vaughan Marshall’s One World colt One Stripe stamped himself a leader of his generation in the Cape when he stormed to victory in the R300 000 Gr3 Winter Nursery at Hollywoodbets Kenilworth on Sunday.

Despite Cape Racing’s revitalized and attractive juvenile programme, it must be disappointing that only five 2yo’s pitched for the Sunday feature.

But what the race lacked for in numbers, the quality was there, and hopes will be high that Vaughan Marshall will travel One Stripe to Pietermaritzburg in June for the Gr1 Gold Medallion.

Allowed to relax by Gavin Lerena as Rama Forseca led the talented Lion Rampart, One Stripe (7-10) simply accelerated when asked by Gavin Lerena, as he took off to win a cracker.

One Stripe was too strong for Lion Rampart (5-2), as the pair made it a Marshall 1-2, with a length separating them in a time of 63,58 secs for the 1100m.

The R1,4 million sales-topper at the 2023 Cape Racing Ready To Run And Unbroken Two Year Old Sale, One Stripe (28-10) One Stripe races in the orange and blue flag of Rikesh Sewgoolam, who is enjoying a nice run.

Bred by Drakenstein Stud, One Stripe is a son of Met winner One World (Captain Al) and is out of the three-time winning Silvano mare Silver Stripe, who stayed well and won up to 2450m.

Now a winner of 3 races from his 4 starts, One Stripe took his stakes total to R870 438.

Interestingly, Drakenstein bred the winners of the first three races – two of them by One World!
