Miesque’s Approval (USA) - Candy Box (SAF) by Exclusive Patriot (USA)

Top Of The Chocs, half-brother to fellow Backworth-bred speedster Chocolicious, opened up his 2013 account with a confident win under apprentice Donovan Dillon over 1200m at Greyville Sunday.

The 4 year-old bay gelding is by Breeders’ Cup winner Miesque’s Approval out of the Exclusive Patriot mare, Candy Box. The bay mare recorded 4 wins in her career including the Grade 3 Strelitzia Stakes and the Listed Juvenile Stakes. She placed four times including a 3rd in the Grade 1 Allan Robertson Fillies Championship.

This win takes Top Of The Chocs’ career record to 2 wins and 7 places from 17 starts. Congratulations to trainers Herman Brown Jnr and Frank Robinson as well as to owners Messrs HJ Brown, P Ebbs, MG Frost, MA Robinson and Ms L Kapustina.

Top Of The Chocs is a graduate from the Backworth draft of the 2010 Emperors Palace National Yearling Sale.
