The KZN Midlands-based sire New Predator, who is standing at Blue Sky Thoroughbreds, had his second successive debut winner today when the Paul Lafferty-trained filly Calling All Angels won the first race over 1100m by half-a-length under Keagan de Melo with the rest of the field beaten by five lengths and more.
Fittingly, Calling All Angels was bred by Bruce le Roux, joint owner of Blue Sky Thoroughbreds, and runs in the colours of Laurence Wernars, who owned New Predator during his racing career.
New Predator has had four runners, two of them have won on debut, one of them won third time out and the other one has had three starts for two seconds and a third.
New Predator’s progeny have not missed the frame to date in eight starts.
The Australian-bred son of New Approach out of a Fastnet Rock mare only received 30 mares last season but that looks sure to change.
