Cheveley Stud’s promising young stallion Wylie Hall has been enjoying a good run of success of late, and the dual G1 winning son of Redoute’s Choice was at it again on Monday, when his only runner on the day won to give his sire a 100% strike rate for the day.
Wylie Hall’s gelded three-year-old son Dads Roots provided trainer Alan Greeff with a seventh win on Monday, and jockey Greg Cheyne a fifth, when he scored a three-parts of a length win over 1300m to win Monday’s eighth and final race at Fairview.
Bred by Willem Engelbrecht Jnr, Dads Roots has now won or placed in four of only eight starts, with the gelding having won his last two races in a row.
Wylie Hall, winner of the 2013 G1 SA Derby and 2015 G1 President’s Champions Challenge, has been in good form in recent days with four of his last eight runners winning, and another finishing second.
A half-brother to G1 winning sprinter Absolute Champion, and from the family of reigning New Zealand Horse Of The Year Melody Belle, Wylie Hall has four lots on the upcoming Cape Yearling Sale namely a filly (Lot 7) out of a winning ½ sister to G1 sprinter Sheik’s Brashee, a filly (Lot 12) from the family of champion filly National Bay, a colt (Lot 63) from the family of multiple US G1 winner Wekiva Springs, and a colt (Lot 129) out of a 3 time winning Dynasty own sister to the stakes placed Irish Maid.
