South African 2YO winner by Reward For Effort

Chatswood Stud freshman Reward For Effort sired his 6th first-crop winner when Tender Mist was successful in the Southern Masonic Juvenile Plate (1450m) at Turffontein.

Tender Mist (2f Reward For Effort – Diva Dance by Danehill Dancer) is prepared by legendary trainer Ormond Ferrraris and sprinted clear for a two-length victory at her second start on Saturday.  She was sent to South Africa after making $37,000 at last year’s Inglis Melbourne Premier Sale.

Reward For Effort and his fellow Chatswood stallions Anacheeva and Purrealist reached an 89% clearance rate at the VOBIS Gold Sale from a combined total of 28 yearlings that paraded on Sunday and Monday.

A Group 1 winner of the 2009 Blue Diamond Stakes, Reward For Effort is third on the Australian first-season premiership with 5 winners for earnings of $337,215.  He stood at Chatswood for an $11,000 (inc gst) service fee last year.
