FIVE-year-old mare All Of Me has earned all but black type in a career that started back in May 2018, but after her 10th success at the Vaal on Thursday, 1 April, 2021, the stable still hopes she can get that all-important quality indicator in her pedigree before she is retired to the broodmare paddock.
All Of Me had two Grade 3 winners behind her when she won this 1400m contest under Ryan Munger and Corne Spies said: “We’ll race her trough this season, she’s a very well-related filly from the close family of O’Caesour and African Warrior, so we’ll be hoping to get lucky and find the right Graded race for her to earn some black type.”
Freddie van Wyk originally bought All Of Me, later the ownership reverted to Trevor Padyaachee and friends, and over time Corne took full ownership.
All Of Me won four of her 10 races at Flamingo Park, including her first career win on 21 May 2018 and Corne remembers: “A whole busload of fans arrived that day, we’ve had a lot of fun with her and it’s an achievement for a mare to win so many races. She’s still enjoying her racing.”
All Of Me is by VAR from Allez Afrique, by Jet Master. She has a half-sister (by The United States), on offer at the National Sale this month. Both were bred by Boland Stud.
