1987 Gr1 Garden Province Stakes - ALPINE SILK - canter3

Alpine Silk (SNL) who was signed for at R110 000 from the Price Brothers' select sales crop at the 1985 National Yearling Sales, is becoming an increasingly valuable breeding prospect through an impressive track record.

With two wins and a third in four juvenile starts, she came out first time at three to run second to record-breaking Jungle Class in the Gr2 Golden Slipper at Clairwood. Back in the Cape she won the Diana Stakes (WFA) and the Gr3 Majorca Stakes before running second to Honey Bear in the Computaform Stakes Gr2. It was then back to Natal for the present winter season. Fourth in a B division first time out this year, Alpine Silk (SNL) then ran second in the SA Fillies Sprint Gr2, third in a desperate finish to the SA Fillies Guineas Gr1 and a similar placed finish in the Gr1 Natal Oaks.
