Eightfold Path is amongst the leading sires nationally for his winners to runners percentage, an impressive 43,5% and included two winners over the weekend, and three winners in five days.
The French Gr3 winner over a mile has covered limited books but his results are impressive, with one commentator over the weekend stating that he is a very easy horse to mate in South Africa.
Carrying one of the leading pedigrees nationally, a son of Giants Causeway out of a 5-time Gr1 winning mare, Eightfold Path was relocated to Spring Valley Stud after the Scott Bros began winding down their 50-plus year old breeding operation.
One of the impressive horses on the weekend was the Scotts own Genereight, a filly that has now won and placed from 6 of her 7 starts, and earned her owners, including former Bafana Bafana captain Neil Tovey, almost R150 000 in stakes.
The second over the weekend was Lady Sharon for trainer Belinda Impey, who had her first win after placing several times. The filly is bred by Seymour Harley and owned by Lady Colleen Glaeser in a partnership.
Spring Valley Stud are offering a handsome colt by Eightfold Path at the upcoming Nationals. He scored a 9 out of 10 on physical inspection and has a very impressive muscular hindquarter. He is out of Discordia by Western Winter, and a half brother to Stakes Winner Just Chaos. This is the damline of Abashiri, Yard Arm and Donya.
Eightfold Path stood for a fee of R10 000 in 2018.
