Feature race success for brilliant Gimmethegreenlight's Gimme One Night.
- Written by the Cape Breeders Club
Gimmethegreenlight, South Africa’s Leading First Crop Sire of 2015-2016, was at it again over the weekend and was represented by three more winners. The son of More Than Ready’s trio of winners this weekend was topped by his son Gimme One Night landing the G3 Cape Summer Stayers Handicap at Kenilworth on Saturday.
Bred by the Riverton Stud, Gimme One Night made it back to back wins when scoring a half length win in Saturday’s R250 000 contest when downing recent Woolavington Handicap Benjan, with previous feature race winners American Landing, Strathdon and Let It Rain further back in running. It was a first graded stakes win for the Brett Crawford trained gelding who took his earnings to R497 925 with Saturday afternoon’s win.
Produced by the winning Parade Leader mare Fiesta Queen, Gimme One Night was a R200 000 buy from the 2015 National Yearling Sale. The gelding, one of five graded winners produced in his sire’s first crop, is a 16th individual stakes winner for his outstanding young sire.
