Drakenstein Stud’s exciting young sire Legislate gained a further update to his pedigree when his 3yo full sister Statute won impressively over 1200m at Scottsville on Sunday.
Bred by the Cheveley Stud, the Michael Roberts trained Statute made it win number two, from just three outings, when cruising home to an emphatic two and a quarter length win in a pinnacle stakes for fillies and mares.
The filly had previously won first time out by five lengths and looks an exciting prospect for the future.
One of five winners out of the four time winning mare Champers, Statute was a R700 000 buy from the 2016 National Yearling Sale.
She is a full-brother to 2014 Horse Of The Year and four time Equus Champion Legislate, whose seven wins included the G1 Vodacom Durban July, G1 Investec Cape Derby, G1 Rising Sun Gold Challenge and G1 Daily News 2000.
Legislate and Statute are both sired by Horse Of The Year and four times Equus Outstanding Stallion Dynasty.
The latter is enjoying another tremendous season in 2017-2018, with his runners including 2018 G1 Investec Cape Derby winner Eyes Wide Open and brilliant G3 Flamboyant Stakes winner Hashtagyolo.
