Name: TRAVELLING LIGHT
Sex: Bay Filly
Sire: Gimmethegreenlight (Aus)
Mare: Tina’s Trip (Trippi (USA))
Breeder: Drakenstein Stud (Pty) Ltd (Agent)
Trainer: Garth Puller
Purchased: National Yearling Sale, April 2018
Pedigree: View here
She is a filly by Gimmethegreenlight who incidentally sired the Daily News 2000 champion, Surcharge.
She is from the same family that produced the likes of Captain Al, Thunder Dance, Battlestar Express, Shadow Dancing etc. So she has a proper family tree.
She was an easy purchase at the National Yearling sale, being one of the first fillies I looked at with Glen Kotzen who was eager to have a second look at her.
I was particularly impressed with her demeanor and specifically with the way she walked. She is extremely well conformed and this is backed up in by an impressive pedigree.
She has settled well into her new environment and although she still has a bit of growing to do, she is a very racy looking filly and is filling out nicely.
Travelling Light was sold on behalf of the Berg Thoroughbred Co Op, which comprises of seven grooms, who had purchased, raised and prepared the weanling. Read more here!
Updates – Travelling Light
February 11th, 2019
We have made the decision to move Travelling Light to Durban, before her career starts. This was a strategic decision that falls in line with what we are looking to achieve with our horses. KZN has always been a happy hunting ground for the syndicate and we are looking forward to seeing this filly at either Greyville or Scottsville in future.

She is really maturing into a smart, quality looking filly. She is progressing well and we are very happy with the way she is going.

As young fillies go, if we keep buying fillies that look like this smart looker it will only be a matter of time before we “strike gold”. She has really turned into a sight to behold and she should run early.
Up until now, she has really taken it all in her stride. So much so, that she was one of the first to leave the spelling farm and she has joined up with Glen Kotzen at his world class establishment in Paarl (Western Cape).
She is a very racy filly with a strong pedigree to back up her claims. We look forward to seeing her line up at the 1000m/1200m at Kenilworth, in the months to come.
