Turffontein double for Ideal World

By November 3, 2023No Comments

Mauritzfontein’s successful resident sire Ideal World struck twice on Thursday, when the regally bred son of Kingmambo came up with two winners at Turffontein.
Ideal World’s first winner on Thursday came in the form of Rosy Lemon, who justified considerable betting support when she won the FM 76 Handicap over 2000 metres.
Under Muzi Yeni, the Fanie Bronkhurst trained four-year-old streaked home to win as she liked by nearly two and three-quarter lengths.
The race was a triumph for Ideal World, with Rosy Lemon beating her paternal half-sister Universal Love into third, and Ideal World also featuring as the broodmare sire of fourth place finisher Ideal Future.
Bred by Wilgerbosdrift & Mauritzfontein, Rosy Lemon has now won twice for her connections.
She is out of the Strike Smartly mare Lemonade and is thus bred on the same Ideal World/Strike Smartly cross as G3 Track And Ball Derby winner Cape Speed and fellow stakes winners Betula Uber and Kimberley Star.
Ideal World ended the day on a high note when his Alec Laird trained daughter Quantum caused a 20-1 surprise when she won the eighth and final race run at Turffontein on Thursday.
Under Kaidan Brewer, the four-year-old stormed home to win the Next Turffontein Racemeeting Saturday 4 November FM 77 Div Handicap (1450m) by three-parts of a length.
Bred by Loving Life Properties (Pty) Ltd, Quantum has now won three times.
Out of the Var mare Qarman, Quantum is bred on the same Ideal World/Var cross as G3 Graham Beck Stakes winner Zen Arcade.
Her sire Ideal World, also responsible for champions Rainbow Bridge, Smart Call and Hermoso Mundo, has two colts on offer at the 2023 November Two Year Old Sale.
