Mooi River farm, and long-time KZN Yearling Sale stalwarts, Yellow Star Sale will be represented by six quality yearlings at the 2018 KZN Yearling Sale, set to take place on the 5th and 6th of July this year.
Two of the draft are sired by the farm’s resident young Galileo son The Assayer. This pair includes a bay filly (Lot 29) out of four time stakes winner Sheikitupbaby, whose victories included the Listed Spook Express Handicap. This is the same family as short-lived Cape Guineas winner Domino Man and seven time stakes winner Storm Champ.
The Assayer is also represented in the Yellow Star draft by a colt (Lot 210) out of the exceptionally well related Jet Master mare Jillnaar. The latter is out of a half-sister to New Zealand champion and multiple G1 winner King’s Chapel and this is also the family of hugely influential sire Mummy’s Pet.
Middle Park Stakes winner Crusade has made a bright start to his stud career, and has been represented by stakes winners in each of his first two crops to race. The son of Mr Greeley has two here –a half-sister to 4 winners including seven time stakes winner Furious Dancer (Lot 174), and a colt out of a winning National Assembly half-sister to millionaire Kangaroo Jack (Lot 251).
Final two in the Yellow Stud draft are both sired by the farm’s resident sire, and Equus Champion, Kildonan. First of these is a filly (Lot 228) from the same family as legendary champion Horse Chestnut, while the Kildonan colt in the draft (Lot 263) is a half-brother to the very durable Panza and is out of a daughter of G1 winning sprinter Nobely Born.
