UNBEATEN COLT CLAIMS MORE BLACKTYPE

Unbeaten two year-old Gimmethegreenlight claimed a stakes success in South Africa on Saturday winning the Listed Betting World Somerset 1200 at Scottsville.

Breednet.com reports the More Than Ready colt scored by half a length for the Justin Snaith stable and is the 83rdstakes-winner worldwide for his sire.

Bred by David Bentata and sold as a weanling in the Vinery draft at Magic Millions in 2009 for $155,000 to Hassen Adams, Gimmethegreenlight is a half-brother to recent Sydney stakes-winner Ofcourseican and stakes-placed La Goulue being from the metropolitan winning Canny Lad mare Yes She Can Cancan.

Yes She Can Cancan has been a tricky producer and has not left a foal since Gimmethegreenlight.

Also opening her winning account was the Sheikh Mohammed Bin Khalifa bred and owned Elusive Quality (USA) filly Salsabeel, who cruised home over 1400 metres to win by four and three-quarter lengths at her second start at Scottsville.

Bred ont he same cross as Golden Slipper winner Sepoy, she is the second winner for Danehill (USA) mare Sarkha, a grand-daughter of English Group I winner Dead Certain.
