“Gaynor Rupert’s Drakenstein Stud

Struck Gold…”

Gaynor Rupert’s Drakenstein Stud struck gold with its acquisition of the champion Florida stallion, Trippi. Ever since his importation, he’s had one Stakes winner after another, he’s right up there among the leading sires in North America as we write. Just this past weekend, he had three candidates in separate Graded stakes events, and all of them found their way into the chequebook.

The future wagering pool for the Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks respectively (the most famous three-year old-races in the States) reveal that his daughter R Heat Lightning tops the betting for the Oaks, while his son, Gourmet Dinner, is among the top half dozen or so for the Derby.

An invaluable source of the Mr. Prospector strain, Trippi was a Grade One winner himself, and must rank among the best looking stallions at stud.

We’ll have our own presence at Churchill Downs for the two big days, and we’ll bring you plenty of news as events unfold for these two time-honoured contests.
