Trippi 1-2 In Perfect Promise Sprint

She looks to have a bright future

The well-related Trippi filly October Morn turned on the jets on heavy ground to score a runaway victory in Saturday’s weather-delayed R200 000 Listed Perfect Promise Sprint at Hollywoodbets Kenilworth.

Racing in the silks of the breeding partnership of Avontuur Stud and David Abery, the beautifully bred filly was sold at Nationals but is back with her breeders after the deal fell through.

A happy Pippa Mickleburgh wasn’t moaning about the non-purchase and was clearly pleased to have a flyer from a top Avontuur family secure an early black-type credit.

Saddled by Candice Bass-Robinson and ridden by Aldo Domeyer, October Morn (9-4) left them for dead at the 250m mark and stormed clear to win by 6 lengths in a time of 81,03 secs.

Quick Trip (5-1)was best of the rest beating recent debut winner Summer Lily (28-10) by 2,25 lengths.

Described by her trainer as a tall, light and rangy filly, October Morn is clearly a smart prospect and hails from a Gr1 family.

By Trippi (End Sweep) who sired the exacta, she was bred by Avontuur and David Abery out of the Gr1 producing VAR mare, Miss October.

Now a winner of 2 from 4 with 2 places, October Morn took her stakes bank to R247 575.
