KZN once again had success yesterday with a half-sister to Gr1 winner Lady In Black from Rathmor, whilst Bezanova’s half-brother sold from Clifton to Chris Gerber, whilst Hadlow sold their outstanding Querari to Mary Slack.
Session 1 saw Rathmor Stud sell The Vow, an Oratorio half-sister to charismatic KZN owner Alesh Naidoo for R425 000. Mystery Dame has now produced two winners, with Fragrant Miss and her Dynasty daughter who is a July entrant, Lady In Black.
Bruce Le Roux’s outstanding Querari colt was knocked down to Lowan Denneyschen for R210 000. The colt is out of National Arabian, out of a National Assembly / Al Mufti mare. This is the family of O Caesar, Harry’s Charm and National Currency.
Roski Stud brought a super draft to Nationals, and John Freeman picked up their Lot 188 for R200 000, named Captain Tatters – the name is a special one, which was a nick-name for the late Greg Royden-Turner who founded Roski Stud. This is a son of Gimmethegreenlight, a second foal for Lady Tatty whose Irish Flame 2yo colt won impressively at Greyville on the turf on debut.
Clifton Stud sold their outstanding Master Of My Fate half-brother to Gr2 winner Bezanova, to the same connections as the great white socked chestnut – Mr Chris Gerber bought the colt for R375 000 to be trained by Alec Laird. The colt named Arrownova was sold as Lot 344.
Another Querari attracted attention from a lady who has had massive success with Querari’s Monks Hood – Mary Slack purchased Hadlow’s eyecatcing Querari named Your Pace Or Mine for R280 000. The flashy black colt with white socks is out of Var mare Anatevka. This is the damline of Captain America.
Another Crusade attracted attention, as Scott Bros imposing colt out of Jet Master mare We Have Lift Off, sold for R360 000 to Mr S Habib. Named Lynty’s Legacy, this is the family of Spring Garland, Real Princess, William Longsword and Victory Moon.
The sale continues today from 11:30 and can be viewed live on www.bsa.co.za.
