The Summerview Stud will be offering some well related lots at this year’s November Two Year Old Sale.

The KwaZulu-Natal farm will be consigning two-year-olds sired by all of Coup De Grace, Crusade, Flying The Flag, Master Of My Fate, Rabada and the sensational Vercingetorix at November’s auction.

Writteninthesand (Lot 73) is a filly bound to have her share of admirers -not only is she by the very much in vogue Master Of My Fate, but she is also a half-sister to millionaire and Listed Christmas Handicap/Listed Secretariat Stakes winner Matador Man. This beautifully bred filly is out of smart racemare Sahara, a four time winner who was runner up in all of the G2 KZN Fillies Guineas, G3 Umzimkhulu Stakes and G3 Flamboyant Stakes.

Equus Champion and boom sire Vercingetorix is represented in Summerview’s draft by Muharib (Lot 110) -a half-brother to Listed Oaks Trial winner Aryaam who hails from the same female line as Irish Oaks winner Lailani, while short-lived Middle Park Stakes winner Crusade’s sole lot on offer is Forged Steel (Lot 51). The latter, a colt from the same family as champions Jay Peg and Kochka, is a half-brother to three winners including the stakes placed Green Lantern.

Warrior Brave (Lot 19), a colt from the first crop of dual G1 winner Rabada, is out of National Assembly’s G3 winning daughter La Pucelle, while Liberty Flag (Lot 129) is a Flying The Flag filly out of Kahal’s stakes winning daughter Cante Libre.

A half-brother to recent winner Heart Of Harlem, Grand Finale (Lot 14) is a son of dual graded stakes winner Coup De Grace from the family of world class sprinter Shea Shea, with this colt’s granddam a dual stakes winning daughter of multiple champion sire Captain Al.
