Fifth first crop winner for Wylie Hall

Cheveley Stud’s multiple G1 winning sire Wylie Hall, himself unraced at two, has made a fine start with his first crop of two-year-olds this season, and the son of Redoute’s Choice was responsible for a fifth first crop winner when his 2yo son Bernardo won at Fairview on Monday afternoon.
Bred by the Piemonte Stud, the gelded Bernardo had been third last time out, and he made amends for that defeat with a courageous win on Monday.

Under jockey Greg Cheyne, the Alan Greeff trained Bernardo kept finding a bit more in the closing stages and stuck his neck to score by a neck when victorious over 1200m.

Out of the Captain Al mare Castle Queen, Bernardo is bred on the same Wylie Hall/Captain Al cross as the promising De La Cruz.

Winner of both the G1 President’s Champions Challenge and G1 SA Derby (he was also first past the post in the 2014 G1 Vodacom Durban July), Wylie Hall’s earlier 2yo winners include exported G3 Protea Stakes winner Twilight Moon, the aforementioned De La Cruz, and G2 Haval Motors South Africa Umkhomazi Stakes contender Poinciana.

From the family of this season’s G1 winners Melody Belle and Yourdeel, Wylie Hall is a son of multiple champion sire Redoute’s Choice. The latter, sadly now deceased, was responsible for a 35th individual G1 winner when his son Dancetaria won the G1 Grosser Dallmayr-Preis at Munich on Sunday.

Wylie Hall has five lots on this year’s Emperors Palace National 2YO Sale.
