BUSH HILL TO MAKE HISTORY AT NYS
23 March 2018

History will be made at the 2018 Emperors Palace National Yearling Sale, when Lot 336 comes into the ring.
This flashy grey Judpot colt is the first yearling ever sold at the National Sale by Bush Hill Stud grooms.

Bush Hill’s Warwick Render said off the grey, “This tall scopy colt will mature ino a nice individual.” The colt, a full-brother to a winner, is out of the Caesour mare Akississtillakiss-a full-sister to G2 Gold Bracelet winner Kiss Me Quick. His second dam is champion Kiss Of Peace, and this is the famed family of outstanding sprinters Harry Hotspur and Rotterdam, as well as top class racemare and producer Kournikova.

Warwick was positive and unbeat about Bush Hill’s National draft, commenting, “We have a nice spread of stallions represented in the string, having nine horses by eight different sires, with all of them being good physical individuals, but again with a range of types, from early speed types to your more classic looking.

A string offering something for every kind of buyer we hope.

From a KZN perspective we are obviously thrilled with the run of success that Crusade has been enjoying and we have an exceptional filly by him being a half sister to Horse Of The Year “Irish Flame”. We also have a Crusade colt out of the stakes placed mare Stella Mia who is from the Bush Hill family of Zirconeum and Stellite. This family is represented in two of our other lots in the Oratorio first foal out of Rhodium, a smart filly, neat and well balanced.

The other a strong sprinting type of colt by Toreador out of Plutonium, making him a half brother to two black type horses. Both of these represent the Danehill onto the dam line, a cross which has proven very successful in this family in Australia already.
Lot 384 is a very smart and together son of Philanthropist who has just got something about him, he is out of the stakes winning full sister to Biaritz, Countess Corlia. 
Treading Water is lot 71, a half brother to Gr1 placed juvenile Neptune’s Rain by Pathfork from that wonderful Party Time family. He is a great looking colt who was highly regarded by the sales inspectors.

Stakes winning mare Lee Danzig has a typically smart filly, much in the mould that her progeny tend to be all of whom have been smart performers. She is a quality filly.

Lot 233 is a well grown racy filly with substance out of the Kahal half sister to three stakes winners of 28 races between them, a really smart prospect.”
