Cloth Of Cloud Wins Gr1 South African Nursery

Monday, 2nd May 2016

At Turffontein in South Africa, well-bred 2YO filly Cloth Of Cloud (Captain Al-Our Table Mountain, by Fusaichi Pegasus) stamped herself as the best juvenile in South Africa when scoring a fast-finishing 1-length victory for trainer Sean Tarry in the R1 million Gr1 South African Nursery (1160m) for 2YOs, over 2YO colt Rivarine (Var-River Jetez, by Jet Master) & Double Appeal (Trippi-Imperious Star, by Navarone). This was a brilliant performance by Cloth Of Cloud who extended her unbeaten record to 3 wins (including the Gr3 Pretty Polly Stakes) from 3 starts for nearly R1 million earnings. A R2.2 million yearling purchase, Cloth Of Cloud is a half-sister to Gr1 Cape Fillies Guineas winner Silver Mountain from the stakes winning Fusaichi Pegasus mare Our Table Mountain, a half-sister to Breeders Cup Mile winner and successful sire Artie Schiller.
