Candice Bass-Robinson and Aldo Domeyer scored a Listed double at Kenilworth today and the unstoppable Drakenstein Stud increased their number of individual stakes winners for the season to 16.    
Rafeef’s burgeoning worth as a sire was given another boost when the Bass-Robinson-trained Who Do You Love won the TAB Listed Perfect Promise Sprint over 1200m for two-year-old fillies under Domeyer.
This followed his two-year-old son Thunderstruck winning yesterday’s Grade 1 Gold Medallion at Hollywoodbets Scottsville. 
Who Do You Love carried 58kg and won by a cosy 1,25 lengths in 73.17 seconds. 
Rafeef has now had four stakes winners in just two crops to be racing and three of them are Grade 1 winners.
Who Do You Love was bred by the Narrow Creek Stud and is owned by Arun Chadha and Warne Rippon’s ASSM Syndicate.
Later the Drakenstein homebred colt Charles Dickens gave Trippi his second two-year-old stakes winner of the weekend when winning the Listed TAB Somerset 1200.
The top sire’s daughter Sweet Pepper, also a Drakenstein homebred, won the Grade 1 Allan Robertson over 1200m at Hollywoodbets Scottsville yesterday.
Charles Dickens took advantage of the 2kg he received from nearest market rival Hithemhardsunshine (What A Winter). 
The slowish pace allowed Domeyer to steal a march and he beat the latter easily in the end by an easing up 1,50 lengths in 72.63 seconds.
Both horses can be followed.
Third-placed Lord William (William Longsword)  also caught the eye.
Drakenstein’s 16 individual stakes winners this season is thought to be record at least in recent times.
