Cumulus, by Toreador out of Celestial Cloud, is diminutive but speedy and his similarity in both size and conformation to Misty Birnam, encouraged Rob Haswell, a former Mayor and Municipal Manager of Pietermaritzburg to purchase him from the Proctors.

He is now a two year old and is already more imposing than Misty Dawn or Cumulus, and will join Nathan Kotzen’s yard at Summerveld next month,” said Haswell.
