(Thoroughbred Net)

Johannesburg, America’s leading young sire sensation, took his stakes winners total to 21 on Saturday when Diamond Tycoon powered home to win the Fair Grounds Handicap (Gr3) in New Orleans.

Included in his 21 stakes winners tally, Johannesburg has 16 Group winners, of which 6 were in 2008 alone. That’s more than El Prado, Elusive Quality, Smart Strike, Awesome Again, Pulpit, Indian Charlie, Lemon Drop Kid, Gone West, Distorted Humor, Empire Maker and Mr Greeley.

Now you don’t have to travel to Kentucky to get in on the “Jozi” action because on 3rd April 2009, Summerhill Stud will offer a quality filly and colt by Johannesburg on the Emperors Palace National Yearling Sales, in Johannesburg.
