Bloodstock South Africa held their Shongweni Mixed Sale on Wednesday and it was very pleasing to see the very wet conditions didnt deter a full house of buyers from attending.
The sale opened with the broodmares and saw Lot 2, the beautifully-bred and performed Felix The Cat sold to Welcome Home Farming for R200 000. The mare, consigned by Bush Hill Stud as Agent, is in foal to international Group winning son of Galileo, Flying The Flag. She was sold with a Tropical Empire foal at foot.
Felix The Cat, a truly beautiful broodmare is a daughter of Black Minnaloushe out of Subyan Dreams by Spectrum – a half-sister to Mljet, and herself placing second in the Gr1 Golden Slipper and Thekweni Stakes.
The top seller from KZN was Just As Well’s daughter Just Vogue, who sold for R80 000. As yet unplaced from all 10 of her starts with three wins and seven places, the half-sister to Piano Man out of Western Winter mare Voga Longa was sold to Gavin Van Zyl.
The total proceeds were R2,446 000, with the top price R240 000 for an unraced Querari filly, sold to Alesh Naidoo. The average was R23 519 for 104 Lots sold.
