Lot 36 – Surefire x Gimmethegreenlight

Boland Stud - Lot 36

Prepare to be enchanted by the embodiment of equine excellence. Behold the regally bred Gimmethegreenlight filly, a true “Queen” in the making, proudly presented by Boland Stud. In the realm of South African racing, Gimmethegreenlight reigns supreme as the reigning champion sire. His legacy is studded with the brilliance of high-class fillies and mares, from Equus Champion Bless My Stars to Gr.1 Brentford FC Garden Province Stakes winner She’s A Keeper. The roll call of graded stakes winners includes the likes of Ciao Bella, Gimme Dat, Green Pepper, Green Plains, La Bella Mia, Third Runway, Ecstatic Green, Gimme A Shot, and Fillies Guineas victor Gimme Six. Gimmethegreenlight’s remarkable influence extends beyond the racetrack. He’s the broodmare sire of a Gr.1 winner, Sweet Pepper, and has bestowed the racing world with promising three-year-old fillies this season. Among them, the Gr.2 World Pool With Gold Circle Debutante heroine Cala Muretta, the stakes-placed pair Blue Holly and Summer Lily, the dazzling debut winner Gimmethatpearl, and the Gr.3 Protea Stakes runner-up Amber Rock.

At the upcoming November Two-Year-Old Sale, Boland Stud presents Lot 36, an exquisite filly from one of the most illustrious families in the stud book. She is a half-sister to three winners, including the distinguished Quasiforsure, who came within three lengths of conquering Gr.1 Hollywoodbets Durban July winner Winchester Mansion in the Gr.3 Hollywoodbets Dolphins Cup Trial. Additionally, she shares her bloodline with the promising three-year-old filly Key Element, a victor in three of her first seven starts, including two of her last three outings. This exceptional filly’s esteemed lineage includes Sulka, the Gr.2 Durban Golden Horseshoe third, and emanates from her dam, Surefire—a three-time winning mare sired by the successful broodmare sire Count Dubois. She is also half-sister to both Gr.3 King’s Cup victor Pirate’s Gold and stakes-placed Shukamisa. The impressive ancestral line continues. Surefire is the offspring of the four-time winning mare Shiver My Timbers, whose sire Cordoba is the same sire as former Broodmare Of The Year Si Senorita. Shiver My Timbers is a half-sister to dual Listed Prix du Cap winner Dacha, the granddam of Gr.1 Vodacom Durban July/Gr.1 World Sports Betting Cape Town Met winner, sire Kommetdieding, as well as Gr.2 Gold Bracelet winner Cruise Collection and the exceptional performer Requista.

But the roots run deeper still. Surefire’s lineage traces back to the legendary matriarch Queen Of Light, a descendant of 1000 Guineas heroine Picture Play. This lineage is a veritable tapestry of greatness, counting among its luminaries English/Irish classic winners Desert Prince, Fairy Footsteps, Light Cavalry, Moonshell, and Royal Palace. It extends further to the likes of Golden Slipper winner Miss Finland, top-class miler and sire Welsh Pageant, and Prix Jean Prat hero Zelzal. This illustrious lineage can be traced back to Paradoxical, the fourth dam of the renowned La Troienne—arguably the most influential broodmare in thoroughbred history.
