The Kinmount Stud will be offering a single lot at this year’s KZN Yearling Sale, but this filly is from the first crop of one of the best bred stallions currently at stud in South Africa.
Kinmount’s filly Imperial Banner (Lot 222) is a daughter of G3 International Stakes winner Flying The Flag, a Galileo full-brother to multiple G1 winners Magical and Rhododendron. The regally bred Bush Stud based Flying The Flag’s dam Halfway To Heaven is a triple G1 winning daughter of breed shaping sire Pivotal and G2 King’s Stand Stakes winner Cassandra Go.
Safe to say, there are fewer better bred stallions anywhere on this continent!
Flying The Flag’s daughter Imperial Banner is a half-sister to useful performers Wimoweh and Pride And Joy (both sired by Lion Tamer) and her dam is a three-parts sister to G1 performer Patriotic Rebel.
The well related Imperial Banner’s third dam is none other than G1 Allan Robertson Fillies Championship Rebellious and this is the same family as high-class sprinter and Durban Merchants winner Even Beat.
