Three Bridges Cheer Aussie G2 Winner South Africa
Australian bred four year-old New Predator scored his second Black Type success when taking out the Group II Peermont Emperor’s Palace Charity Mile at Turffontein in South Africa on Saturday providing a great result for Three Bridges Thoroughbreds, who now own his dam.
Trained by Johan Janse van Vuuren, the New Approach (IRE) entire was a Group II winner last season at three and took this 1600 metre feature by half a length taking his overall record to four wins from 13 starts.
He passed in at the 2013 Magic Millions National Weanling Sale and was sent to South Africa later that year and is the first stakes-winner for Head Over Heels, a half-sister by Fastnet Rock to stakes-winner Presently.
Head Over Heels was purchased at the 2015 Magic Millions National Broodmare Sale by Paul Willetts Bloodstock on behalf of Three Bridges for $52,500.
She has since produced a filly by Fighting Sun that was sold by Three Bridges as a weanling for $50,000 and has been sent to New Zealand and has foaled this spring producing a colt by Unencumbered.
