Son Of Bezrin Wins Storm Bird Stakes Listed

Bezrin had yet another Stakes winner over the weekend, with chestnut colt Jimmi Choo getting his career off to a bang in January by winning his debut over a 1000m at the Vaal from Tommy Gun by a length.

Jimmi Choo went on to win the Storm Bird Stakes Listed strongly on Saturday at Turffontein over 1000m, running on to win by almost a length and a half from Olympic Owen (Jay Peg) and Bruce Le Roux's King's Soldier (King Of Kings) running on for third. Trained by Leon Erasmus, Jimmi Choo is owned by Johann Botha who purchased him for just R50 000 at the 2012 Suncoast KZN Yearling Sale. He has already made a return, earning R161 750 from just three starts.

In his second start he took on Tommy Gun again at Turffontein over 1000m over very soft going and came second by a nose - however Tommy Gun was carrying 55kgs and Jimmi Choo 58kgs. With unusual white markings on his off-foreleg and near hind-leg - a trait that sire Bezrin often passes onto his progeny - Jimmi Choo is a flashy chestnut out of the mare Ambleside by Northfields.

Sportingpost.co.za reports, regarding Bezrin's outstanding ability to produce sprinters and stayers: "There aren’t many sires who produce stakes winners from 1000m to 3600m, but Danzig’s son Bezrin is one who has. Bezrin is very versatile and also produced the winner of South Africa’s longest race - that being Thunderflash, who won the 2010 Listed P.E. Gold Cup."

Bezrin has achieved success in Zimbabwe, Kenya and Mauritius, including the likes of Gr 3 winner Celtic Fire and Kenyan champions Lazrin and Westonian, to name but a few.
