Stud Comments

Turffontein was a multiple Group 1 winning sprinter who raced with the elite, season after season. Winner of the MVRC William Reid and the MRC Rupert Clarke Stakes in 2009-2010, he left the likes of Wanted, All American, Sniper’s Bullet, Mentality and Nicconi trailing in his wake.

Turffontein is by the unbeaten, World Champion Two Year Old Johannesbug who is fast making a name for himself as a sire of sires. Scat Daddy (Champion Freshman Sire in the US, sire of 68 stakes winners, sixteen group/grade one winners including Lady of Shamrock, No Nay Never, Daddy Long Legs, etc.), Teuflesburg (Sire of Grade One Breeders Cup Sprint winner Trinniberg, etc.), Diamond Tycoon (Sire of Grade One winner Nepomuceno, etc.) and Sageburg (Sire of Group Three winner Peace Burg, etc.) have all produced Group or Grade winners from their first crop of foals.

Retired to stud sound in 2010, Turffontein was Victoria’s leading First Season Sire in the 2013-14 season. He is the sire of Group Two VRC Edward Manifold Stakes and Group Three MRC Caulfield Classic winner Fontein Ruby, Group Two Blue Diamond Prelude and Group Three Blue Diamond Preview winner Fontiton, Smart Singapore winners Golden Tomahawk and Sunday Sun, the very promising Colin Little trained winner Safariann, the ultra-tough and consistent Turfane, the up and coming Darren Wier trained Lyuba.
