Ms Nothemba Mlonzi, a Johannesburg based business lady who breeds Thoroughbreds in Birnamwood outside of Howick at her Mwetwood Stud, has now produced two winners from two runners in her first crops season.
After Master Keys (Master Of My Fate – On A Wing) won very impressively on debut (and in the process gave Nathan Kotzen his first winner), it was followed up by the well bred Galaxy Tunes – a juvenile son of Toreador trained by Mark Dixon and a full brother to Cumulus.
Master Keys was the first yearling to be sold at the National Yearling Sale by a black lady, and Galaxy Tunes at the 2017 KZN Yearling Sale for R50 000. He has placed previously from his four starts.
Out of an Invincible Spirit mare who is a half-sister to multiple Graded Stakes Placed Patchitup Baby, this is also the damline of sire Qui Danzig.
Well done to Nothemba and we look forward to more to come from her stud farm.
