CHER AMI was purchased by the Hollywood Syndicate at the BSA November 2018 Ready To Run Sale. He is a colt by Var out of the Fort Wood mare, Sweetie Pie. He was consigned by Jane Thomas’ Far End Farms.
He is a big, strong colt by the highly rated Var out of a bold black type winning Fort Wood mare called Sweetie Pie. The mare has produced two winners from two runners in the form of Nabisco and Oh My Darling – both by the late Western Winter.
As size goes, he has plenty of it and the pedigree brings a nice cross of speed on the sires side and stamina on the mares side. Some may recall Sweetie Pie winning the Gold Circle Oaks some years back and she proved to be a versatile sort on the track, winning from 1200m – 2400m during her career.
Over the generations the pattern between both families has consistently produced middle distance feature race winners, between 1600 – 1800m and this is what we saw in him – a beautiful, big miler.
He will be trained by Alyson Wright in Durban.

He has arrived safely in Durban and has already been put through his paces at Summerveld. Below is a video of his workout over the weekend, where the work rider reported that he is a solid individual who gave him a very nice feel.
