Favour Stud, breeders of this season’s promising2yo filly Miss Khalifa and high class 3yo Woljayrine, have a strong draft on offer at the 2018 Cape Yearling Sale.

The Stillbaai farm’s nine strong offering includes yearlings by some of the country’s most exciting young sires, headed by last season’s Champion First Crop Sire What A Winter.

The latter is the sire of lot 53 –a filly out of Kahal’s East Cape champion Haizi, winner of the Listed East Cape Nursery, from the great Soho Secret family.

Another interesting lot from the Favour Stud draft is lot 33, a colt who shares his sire Mambo In Seattle with unbeaten 3yo Majestic Mambo. This colt, called Baby Lets Mambo, is out of a stakes placed winner of five, whose G1 placed own sister is the dam of G2 Gerald Rosenberg Stakes winner Trophy Wife (whose sire Tiger Ridge is a close relative of Mambo In Seattle).

Master Of My Fate has made a great start to his stud career, with two smart winners from his first four runners. The son of Jet Master is the sire of an unnamed bay daughter (Lot 49) of a winning half-sister to graded winning 2yos Olympic Owen and Speedy Suzy, from the family of dual US champion sire Exclusive Native.

Dynasty’s triple G1 winning son Jackson has two lots in the draft –a three parts brother (closely inbred to champion US sire Cozzene) to stakes placed filly Baroness Mary (Lot 38), and a bay son of Winter Oaks third Myst (Lot 89).

Former Horse Of The Year Irish Flame is another son of Dynasty represented in this draft. He is the sire of Runaway Queen (Lot 2), a filly out of a stakes placed three time winner, whose relatives including champion filly Hammer Belle.

Captain Al’s triple G1 winning champion sprinter son Captain Of All is also represented in the Favour Stud draft. His son Capkuta (Lot 91) is bred to be very quick, being out of the 1000m stakes winner Ngakuta, and from the family of sprint champions En Avant and Taban.

Silvano’s Equus Champion son Vercingetorix, a G1 winner in Dubai, has two members of his much anticipated first crop in this draft- a chestnut colt by the name of Dogmatix from the family of sprint star and G1 Mercury Sprint winner War Artist (Lot 18) and a colt called Tricky Business. The latter, inbred to champion Nijinsky II, is out of former G1 SA Fillies Classic winner Zaitoon, and is from the same family as champion and leading sire Chief’s Crown and Kentucky Derby winning filly Winning Colors.
