Hadlow Stud’s Cathy Martin is very excited by the quality of her string for this year’s KZN Yearling Sale.
Cathy says, “We are bringing a very strong draft of horses to the KZN sale this year. It was a conscious decision on our part to bypass the National Sale and bring them all to the KZN Yearling sale rather than split the draft and go to two different sales.”
Enticed into the thoroughbred industry by Craig Ramsey, Cathy and Jonathan Martin have bred horses in the beautiful KZN Midlands for over 20 years. Among the horses to have graduated from Hadlow are five time G1 winner Dancewiththedevil, G1 HSH Princess Charlene Empress Club Stakes winner Ronnie’s Candy as well as former East Cape Horse Of The Year Celtic Fire and the talented Thunderflash. Both Celtic Fire and Thunderflash were sold off past KZN Yearling Sales.
Hadlow Stud will be offering yearlings by such notable or promising stallions as Canford Cliffs, Danon Platina, New Predator, Rafeef, Willow Magic and champion sire elect Vercingetorix at the 2022 KZN Yearling Sale.
