Klawervlei Stud’s well performed resident sire ROYAL MO (Uncle Mo) continues to churn out winners, despite having a small number of runners, and the former G3 Robert B. Lewis Stakes winner was at it again when his son TYRION LANNISTER won the Newlands Stakes (1400m) at Hollywoodbets Kenilworth on Saturday.

Trained by Piet Botha, three-year-old Tyrion Lannister was given a superb ride by JP Van Der Merwe. Tyrion Lannister jumped away smartly and went out to make the running, the Royal Mo colt appeared beaten close home but he fought back gamely to get up and win by three-parts of a length.

The Newlands Stakes was a good race for Klawervlei, with the farm’s resident stallions Royal Mo and William Longsword sire of the winner and runner up respectively.

Bred by Millstream Farm, Tyrion Lannister races for the Dare 2 Dream Racing Syndicate.

Royal Mo, whose daughter HAPPY MO had romped to an impressive maiden win recently, had enjoyed feature race success just a few weeks ago when Royal Mo gelding ROYAL AUSSIE ran out a courageous winner of the Listed Pongracz Jet Master Stakes. To date, Royal Aussie, who is bound for KZN later this season, has earned more than R5.8 million in prize money.

Royal Mo, who shares his outstanding sire UNCLE MO with such successful and promising stallions NYQUIST, OUTWORK, MO TOWN and LAOBAN, has two lots on offer at the 2024 National Yearling Sale -a colt (182) from the family of champions IN THE FAST LANE (Jet Master) and TRADEMARK (Goldmark), and a filly (Lot 275) from the family of star fillies MONYELA (Fort Wood) and SPORT’S CHESTNUT (Sportsworld) among others.
