Yesterday, his winning half-brother More Energy (by Fastnet Rock), further boosted the pedigree when he placed second in the Gr3 Qld Tatt’s RC Tattersall’s Cup over 2200m by a neck under South African Jeff Lloyd, from only five starts. The colt has now five and placed six, earning A$156,325.

Their Hard Spun half-brother, Hard Promise, is also Gr3 [2nd] placed after a close second, a position he maintained throughout the race, in the Gr3 Ladbrokes Zeditave Stakes at Caulfield over 1200m – on Ladbrokes Blue Diamond Stakes day earlier this year. In total, Perfect Promise has produced three winners at stud and five as a second dam.

More Energy is a multiple winner and Stakes Placed.

South African international Gr1 winning super star mare Perfect Promise, by broodmare extraordinaire Caesour, won eight races over distances of 1000m – 1600m.

After winning the Gr1 Cape Fillies Guineas, Gr3 Diana Stakes and the Listed Prix Du Cap, she carried forward her good form to land the Australian Gr1 CJ Orr Stakes and the Gr2 Emancipation Stakes.

Her full sister Irridescence also had her share of South African Gr1 wins in the Woolavington 2000 and SA Fillies Classic, and would go on to beat sire Australia’s dam, the great Ouija Board in the Gr1 QE II Cup in Hong Kong, after securing a Gr2 in Dubai.

Sire Redoute’s Choice has been a phenomenon at stud with three Champion Sire titles, 32 individual Gr1 winners and a sire of sires at stud – he has been crowned the best son of Danehill at stud today.

His sons at stud are excelling with the likes of Snitzel, Not A Single Doubt and Stratum and Beneteau.

Bush Hill Stud, who birthed and raised Gr1 winner and KZN Yearling Sales graduate Seal for Dr Ian Heyns, have the following horses in their draft at Sibaya. Toreador produced his second Gr1 winner with Bull Valley in the Tsogo Sun Sprint this year, whilst Irish Flame has produced two winners from a handful of runners to date.

All of Bush Hill Stud’s draft except Lot 224 qualify as KZN-breds, which means they qualify to enter the KZN Breeders Race Day with stakes of R2,8million to be won on the day. Horses are identifiable by stable door posters and hip stickers in the sales ring. 

Bloodstock South Africa have introduced a further incentive of R40 000 to all 2017 BSA yearling sale graduates, who win their Maiden Juvenile Plate in 2018.

Tick the box for your yearling to qualify for the 2018 KZN Yearling Sale Million.
