Crusade supplies his first winner

Crusade on his way to winning the Group 1 Middle Park Stakes
1 of 1

Group 1 hero Crusade has been represented by his first winner in South Africa when his daughter Miss Millionaire won on her debut at Greyville on Monday.

Trained by Belinda Impey and ridden by Alec Forbes, the filly led from the start before holding off the challenge of Minnie The Moocher to claim the contest.

Bred by Bruce Le Roux out of the six-time winning Only A Pound mare Really Rich, Miss Millionaire was bought for R70,000 (£4,210/€4,840) at the 2016 KZN Sibaya Yearling Sale.

Crusade, an eight-year-old son of Mr Greeley out of the Grade 3-winning Johannesburg mare La Traviata, was trained by Aidan O'Brien to win two races including the Group 1 Middle Park Stakes as a two-year-old.

He is a half-brother to dual Group 1 heroine Seventh Heaven and the winners Cristoforo Colombo and Sir Henry Raeburn.

Purchased by KZN Breeders in 2013 to take up stallion duties in South Africa, he stands at the Scott Bros' Highdown Stud at a fee of R20,000 (£1,203/€1,383).
