Horse Chestnut (SAF) - Flutter Bye (SAF)

In a somewhat ironic scheduling of nature, Flutter Bye, a half sister to Grade 2 Ipi Tombe Challenge victress First Again, presented Backworth with our ‘second’ foal of the season. A strapping colt by arguably the best racehorse to have run in South Africa in the past 40 years and the nation’s only Triple Crown winner in history, Horse Chestnut.

If his first few days in the paddocks are any indication, this chap is sure to send a few ‘hearts a fluttering’.
