Mary Slack’s Wilgerbosdrift Stud to sponsor the Triple Tiara

Well-known racehorse owner and breeder Mary Slack’s Wilgerbosdrift Stud is to sponsor the 2013 SA Triple Tiara for three-year-old fillies.

The TRIPLE TIARA comprises three races:

* The R500,000 Wilgerbosdrift Fillies Guineas (Grade 2) – 1600m, Turffontein Saturday 2 March

* The R1-million Wilgerbosdrift SA Fillies Classic (Grade 1) – 1800m, Turffontein Saturday 30 March

* The R750,000 Wilgerbosdrift SA Oaks (Grade 2) – 2450m, Turffontein Saturday 27 April

The Triple Tiara is the ultimate test for a filly and carries a R1-million bonus for winning all three legs. Igugu (2011) is the only filly to have won the Triple Tiara since its inception in 1999.

Mary Slack said: “Wilgerbosdrift is delighted to be associated with the Triple Tiara, three top-class races that cater for the country’s best fillies. It is essential for the breeding industry that fillies race for excellence in South Africa and are rewarded accordingly.

“Superior fillies produce champion racehorses and they are the flag bearers of our industry in generations to come. Igugu is the only filly in South Africa to have won all three legs and let’s hope that there is another champion in the wings,” she added.

Phumelela Sales Executive Clyde Basel said: “We are privileged to have Wilgerbosdrift as the sponsor of the Triple Tiara. They have bred multiple
graded winners and are having a super season. To have a top breeder’s brand associated with the Triple Tiara series is fantastic for the event. Many thanks to Mary Slack for making this sponsorship possible.”
