A handsome grey colt by Danon Platina, bred by Rathmor Stud and consigned by Millstream Farm sold for R550 000 at the Cape Yearling Sale on Sunday.
Out of Approach Me by Right Approach, the colt was knocked down to Greg Bortz and will be trained by Justin Snaith.
The Snaith family trained third dam Joise De Grise, an Arcsa Champion 3yo Sprinter in her day. Approach Me is a 4-time winner and Listed Placed.
The first Bloodstock South Africa sale of the year gave a very positive start for the rest of the year, in currently not the best economical climate post Covid hard lockdowns, it was highly encouraging to see two horses topping the sale for R1-million each and we look forward to the Nationals in April.
Well done to all concerned.
