First Win For Just Vogue
Just Vogue has been knocking on the door for a win after placing in all four of her previous starts for the Gavin Van Zyl yard.
The Just As Well filly out of Western Winter mare Voga Longa is owned in partnership by Team G Racing (Nom: Mr G H van Zyl) & Mr S P Chatfield & R G Coppin. Just Vogue won over 1200m at Greyville on the Polytrack, defeating Soldier's Bride by half a length.
Voga Longa has produced three winners to date, including 7-time winner Piano Man and Charter's Creek. This is the damline of Vistula, Moscovy, Sovereign Seas and Super Magic, to mention but a few.
Just As Well has excelled from small opportunities, having produced the likes of Well In Flight and Just As I Said, as well as Gr1 performer Just Africa. From his first crop he only had 12 registered foals and three went to Gr1 performances. He ended the 2015/2016 season on a winners to runners percentage of 41%, above the average of most stallions.
By supreme sire AP Indy, his dam No Matter What is a Gr1 winner (by Nureyev, same cross as Judpot), and Just As Well himself crossed the line first in a Canadian Gr1 race which was sadly lost in the courtroom several months later. He is a half-brother to Gr1 Rainbow View and descends from the immediate family of Raven’s Pass and E Dubai.
Just As Well stands at Spring Valley Stud for a fee of R10 000 this season.
