Klawervlei’s veteran sire, Casey Tibbs, was represented by yet another feature race winner on Sunday. His 3yo son, Why Worry, claimed the G3 Winter Classic – the second leg of Cape Town’s Winter Series.
Why Worry, trained by Justin Snaith, was coming off a good effort in the G3 East Cape Derby, and confirmed his status as a rapidly improving 3yo with a convincing win in the Classic. Why Worry will try and join the likes of Casey Tibbs’ offspring Casey’s Son and Cree Lodge as winners of the G3 Winter Derby.
His sire, the Sadler’s Wells horse Casey Tibbs, has now been represented by nearly 30 black type performers. His tally of stakes winners include the ill-fated champion Big City Life, and such high-class performers as top sprinter Cyber Case and SA Oaks winner, Festive Occasion.
His offspring have won graded races from 1000 – 2450m, and regularly hold their own against the best in the country.
Casey Tibbs is a stallion who has really done well, despite never receiving the best mares.
He stood at a bargain fee of just R5,000 this past season and is currently based at the Hemel ‘n Aarde Stud.
