St Helier Stud has a successful day with two Lots sold – the first an outstanding What A Winter colt for R375 000 and a Fort Wood colt out of a Cape Cross mare, from the damline of Gr1 winner Britannia’s Rule for R300 000.
The What A Winter colt, the leading KZN colt of the day is out a National Emblem mare Sierra Lily, from the damline of Villandry, Geordoba, Ravishing and Dynastic Power.
He sold to Dynamic Syndications.
The Fort Wood colt, an outstanding classic type of horse sold to Park Bloodstock.
The dam Velvet Mover has produced a winner from her first foal, and the Fort Wood named Lloyd George is her first produce.
Piemonte Stud sold a magnificent son of Noble Tune for R350 000 to Team G Racing.
The colt was frequently seen out in the sales yard for inspections and bidding was active for the flashy and imposing grandson of Unbridled’s Song, out of an imported mare from the immediate damline of Lanner Falcon.
Piemonte also sold the top priced KZN filly of the day, with Lot 203 Crusade filly purchased by Garth Puller for R220 000.
The filly is the second produce for the young mare Sully’s Landing – her first foal has recently achieved Black Type early in her juvenile career after finishing 2nd in a Gr3 very recently and looks an exciting prospect.
Piemonte Stud have brought a high quality draft of yearlings and their early success isnt a surprise with the careful selection of pedigrees – they have already produced the likes of Eastern Cape Champion Kalamain, Gr3 winner O Tamara and Gr3 placed Celestina, with Lee’s Pick also an exciting prospect.
