The Hadlow Stud will be offering eight quality lots at next week’s KZN Yearling Sale.
Their draft includes yearlings by such popular stallions as Crusade, Flower Alley, Visionaire and the sadly now deceased Toreador.
The latter, whose best offspring include champion Link Man, dual G1 winner Bull Valley, and July hope Matador Man, is represented in the Hadlow draft by two fillies. The first, Matadora’s Parade (Lot 71), is out of a winning half-sister to two stakes horses, as well as the four time winning dam of exported Equus Champion Edict Of Nantes.
Toreador is also sire of Untarnished (Lot 272) –a half-sister to seven winners, including promising recent 2yo winner Ticket Holder, from the family of champion fillies Hoeberg, Petrava and Princess Victoria.
Travers Stakes winner Flower Alley has made a considerable impression with his first local yearlings in 2018, and the proven G1 sire is represented in the Hadlow draft by The Loadmaster (Lot 7). This colt is a half-brother to Off To Stud Stakes winner Lady Of Kildare and is from the same family as Epsom Derby winner Slip Anchor.
G1 winner and promising young sire Crusade is the sire of Lakota (Lot 56), a filly from the family of G1 winners Nania, Red Ray, and Rudra, while G1 winner and G1 sire Visionaire has a filly (Lot 167) out of a mare who won six from the same family as star miler and top class sire Grand Lodge.
Other lots of interest in the draft include a Just As Well filly from the family of recent Kentucky Oaks runner up Wonder Gadot (Lot 127), a Linngari filly from the same family as promising 2yo Dagmar (Lot 140), and a Great Britain colt by the name of Aintree (Lot 141). The latter is out of a G3 placed daughter of successful Australian sire Mossman and his second dam is an own sister to G2 Greyville1900 winner Karaka One.
