KZN will be represented by approximately 70 horses at the Emperors Palace National Yearling Sale, taking place 24, 25, and 26 April at the TBA Complex.
The eight farms represented include half-siblings to Gr1 winner Lady In Black, and Black Types Malak El Moolook, Angel’s Power, King Neptune, Stella Mia, Celestine, Amazing Strike, Exit Here, Eventual Angel, Extradite, Just As I Said, Lala, One Cool Dude, Royal Pleasure and Queen Laurie.
The first crops of the very exciting young sires Flying The Flag (a full brother to Gr1 winning sisters Rhododendron and Magical), Willow Magic (the first Gr1 winning son of Dubawi to stand in South Africa) and Act Of War (Gr1 winning son of the recently passed Dynasty) on offer.
Flying The Flag had his first yearlings represented at the recent Cape Yearling Sale, and in a tough economic market an outstanding colt from Wilgerbosdrift sold for R140 000, in a sale where the average was R66 000.
Bush Hill Stud have brought a yearling from their family that yields multiple winners in every generation, that of King Neptune and Stella Mia, going back to the brilliant Gr1 winners Zirconeum and Stellite. A family that never disappoints, the colt is by Flying The Flag who is putting serious quality into his babies with good size and bone. Amongst Bush Hill’s draft are yearlings out of Gr2 winners Go Indigo, Tempted, Gr3 winner Rhythmic Roxy and Gr1 placed Silent Call with stallions on offer by Var, Pathfork, Crusade, Jackson and Coup De Grace.
Clifton Stud topped the sale last year with their beautiful Esterel filly Montreal Mist (and placed on debut this week for owners Mrs Mary Slack and Mr Javett), and bring a Flying The Flag colt out of a Gr1 placed mare Sauna’s Rose that has produced 6 runners and 6 winners. They also have a beautiful Capetown Noir filly (who has already produced his first Black Type with winner Brandina) out of a Galileo mare Miss Coco.
Cathy and Jonathan Martin of Hadlow Stud are bringing three yearlings, including a Crusade out of the very good looking Var mare Anatevka. This is her second foal and the family of Captain America.
Piemonte have brought a well bred draught once again, and amongst them is a Vercingetorix half-brother to Gr3 placed Celestina. Vercingetorix is very well out of the starting blocks this year with four winners. They also have Flying The Flag colt Massimo, a half-brother to three times Gr2 placed Amazing Strike. Piemonte, sporting a winners to runners percentage of 32.8% also have progeny of Global View, Soft Falling Rain, Jackson, Oratorio, Wylie Hall, Captain Of All and Capetown Noir amongst them.
Rathmor have brought a very strong draft once again – not only a sibling to Gr1 winner Lady In Black, but the progeny of two of South Africa’s top selling broodmares at their respective CTS Mare sales purchased by Rathmor – with Almosthaditall (sadly now deceased) selling for R2,4-million and Queen Of Spain, herself a half-sister to Coolmore sire Mastercraftsman, knocked down for R2,6-million. Rumour has it that Rathmor also have a smashing Captain Al yearling on offer.
They have sons by Frankel – the only on the sale – and Dynasty on offer.
Spring Valley Stud always carry a yearling draft with plenty of weight, and amongst them is a very well grown handsome Twice Over colt out of a half-sister to Stakes Winner Juan Two Three. This is also the family of Widow’s Lamp and National Bay. Another impressive horse is that by Flying The Flag out of Harolds Gold – the mare produced another winner yesterday at Fairview with Scribo. The Flying The Flag yearling produced a 9.5 at the Nationals inspections and must not be missed.
Bruce also brings his good families to the sale – that of a cracking Querari out of Bedloe’s Island, making the yearling a half-sister to 5-time winner Kahula from the family of Buy And Sell and Count The Money. He also has a beautiful Flower Alley filly out of Silver Fantasy – this is another family that guarantees winners, and has produced the likes of Gr1 winner Indiscreet Fantasy and 11-time winner London Call. The dam Silver Fantasy has produced 3 runners and 3 winners with 8 wins between them.
Summerhill’s draft only consist of progeny of their first season sires Willow Magic and Act Of War. They have received smart mares – and progeny on offer include a Willow Magic filly out of a mare that has produced 4 winners from 5 runners, another Willow Magic out of Gr2 winning mare Fisani, a Willow Magic out of Galileo mare Mumtazah from the immediate family of Gr2 winner Intergalactic, and an Act Of War half-sister to Gr3 winner Royal Pleasure. A farm that has produced 10 National Champion Breeders titles, they have had 3 – Black Type winners this season and lying 3rd on the National log behind breeding giants Mauritzfontein & Wilgerbosdrift and Klawervlei Stud.
Yellow Star Stud are back at Nationals this year and bring two yearlings by Gr1 producing sire What A Winter. They include a half-sibling to Listed winner Maggie Kay.
#kznbreds registered with the KZN Breeders Premium Scheme are still to be confirmed, but they will be prominent at the sale with posters on stable doors and hip stickers in the sales ring. These horses will qualify for the annual KZN Breeders Race Day, restricted to horses registered with the KZN Breeders Premium Scheme.
