Lot 161 – Missibaba x Danon Platina

Boland Stud - Lot 161

Danon Platina filly sports a power-packed pedigree

Prepare to be captivated by an offering of unparalleled elegance and pedigree at this year’s esteemed KZN Yearling Sale. Boland Stud, the epitome of excellence in breeding, proudly presents a filly from an extraordinary female line. Lot 161, sired by the illustrious Deep Impact’s champion son, Danon Platina, and out of the impressive four-time winner Missibaba, promises to ignite the spark of racing greatness within you. Eugene himself is enamoured by this well-bred filly, stating, “She is stunning.”

The power-packed pedigree of this filly is simply awe-inspiring. Missibaba, a full-sister to the Gr.3 Strelitzia Stakes winner Royal Pleasure, traces her lineage back to the Gr.1 winning sire Visionaire, who also holds the distinction of being the broodmare sire of this season’s remarkable three-year-old and Gr.1 Splashout Cape Derby winner, See It Again. But the lineage of Missibaba runs even deeper within the annals of South African breeding excellence. She shares a three-parts sibling relationship with the Visionaire-sired Equus Champion and Gr.1 Premiers Champion Stakes winner, Good Traveller, making her part of one of the most prolific families in the South African stud book.

Taking a closer look at the matriarch of this exceptional family, we find none other than the Gr.2 The Oaks winner, Taineberry, herself a daughter of the outstanding sire and broodmare sire Centaine. Taineberry, a victor in the Listed Easter Handicap, gifted the racing world with two exceptional broodmare daughters, Jalberry and Strawberry Lane. Jalberry, winner of the Gr.3 Pretty Polly Stakes and third-place finisher in the Gr.1 SA Fillies Sprint, has proven her worth as a producer, being the dam of graded stakes winners Love To Boogie and Purple Diamond. Jalberry’s daughter, Mary’s Pride, a four-time winner, further solidifies this family’s success by producing the Gr.1 Woolavington 2000 queen, Silvano’s Pride.

The winning full sister of Jalberry, Strawberry Lane, held the prestigious title of Broodmare Of The Year. Her offspring includes the Gr.1 winning full-siblings Solo Traveller (Cape Guineas) and Redberry Lane (Garden Province Stakes). Strawberry Lane’s legacy extends even further, as she proudly stands as the granddam of the aforementioned champion, Good Traveller. Red Berry, the Listed Lady’s Pendant winner of this season, further showcases the enduring success of Taineberry’s lineage.

Japanese champion Danon Platina, the sire of this remarkable filly, needs no introduction. Hailing from the same sire as standout performers such as Gentildonna, Snowfall, Saxon Warrior, Auguste Rodin, Study Of Man, Contrail, and Loves Only You, Danon Platina has made an impressive mark with his first crop of two-year-olds this season. As we write this letter, Danon Platina rates above exceptional sires such as Querari, Rafeef, Var, and Trippi on South Africa’s Leading Sires of 2YOs premiership for 2022-2023. With twelve early winners to his name, including promising talents like Romance In Rome, Oriental Bouquet, and Platina Princess, Danon Platina showcases his ability to sire champions.
