Second winner for Legislate
The Cheveley Stud bred and based champion Legislate came up with his second first-crop winner on Sunday, when his two-year-old daughter Toto scored an emphatic win at Turffontein.
Bred and owned by Drakenstein Stud, the cleverly named Toto was always up with the pace in Sunday’s 1160m maiden juvenile plate for fillies.
When jockey Devin Habib asked the question, Toto dug down to fight off the challenge of the favourite Thumbs Up before the pair drew clear to post a one and a half length win.
Making just her second start on Sunday, Toto is out of the Trippi mare Rain In Africa.
Her Horse Of The Year sire Legislate has made a bright start with his small crop of runners including the impressive recent winner Speed Machine.
To date, the four time G1 winning son of Dynasty has had seven first crop runners who have either won or finished in the money.
From the same family as champion Gabor, Legislate won six graded races, and set a course record for 1600m at Kenilworth, during a career which saw the champion earn over R5.7 million in prize money.
