Two out of three for Wylie Hall son

Cheveley Stud’s multiple G1 winning sire Wylie Hall has made an excellent start with his first two-year-olds this season, and the son of Redoute’s Choice looks to have come up with an above average performer in the form of De La Cruz.

The latter made it two wins from just three starts when victorious in a juvenile plate, over 1200m, at the Vaal racecourse on Thursday.
Trained by Ashley Fortune, the Mayesh Chetty bred De La Cruz showed his class when accounting for G2 SA Nursery third Battleoftrafalgar by two lengths.

Third place finisher Capetown Affair was 4.5 lengths off the winner, who looks potentially a very smart sort in the making.

A smart winner on debut, De La Cruz is one of three first-crop winners for his sire Wylie Hall (himself unraced at two), with others including impressive G3 Protea Stakes winner Twilight Moon and debut scorer Wily Lass.

A dual G1 winner, who was first past the post in the 2014 G1 Vodacom Durban July, Wylie Hall shares his late, great sire Redoute’s Choice with such standout stallions as Snitzel, Stratum and Not A Single Doubt, as well as Arrowfield Stud’s hugely exciting, five-time G1 winning new sire The Autumn Sun.

The Cheveley Stud resident’s is a half-brother to the  dam of a Fastnet Rock weanling colt (Lot 596) who made $300 000 at this week’s Magic Millions Gold Coast National Weanling Sale.
