South African Stakes-Winner for Canford Cliffs

Promising young Australian bred stayer Dorset Noble (3g Canford Cliffs x Tingirana, by Generous) won the Listed East Cape Derby at Fairview in South Africa on Saturday.

Trained by Candice Bass-Robinson, this son of Canford Cliffs was favourite for the 2400 metre staying test and strolled home to win by more than four lengths.

A $60,000 Inglis Premier purchase for World Wide Bloodstock from the draft of Erinvale Thoroughbreds, Dorset Noble has two wins and two seconds from just four starts.

He is one of five winners from stakes-winning Generous mare Tingirana, who won up to 2800 metres and was second in the Group I SAJC South Australian Oaks.

Dorset Noble is the first Australian bred stakes-winner for five time Group I winner Canford Cliffs, who shuttled to Blue Gum Farm in Victoria for five seasons.
