John Everett’s Narrow Creek Stud will be represented by a high-class draft of seven at the 2018 Emperors Palace National Yearling Sale next week.
The farm’s draft is made up of yearlings sired by such top class stallions as Duke Of Marmalade, Dynasty, Querari and What A Winter and no serious buyer can afford to miss this draft!
Outstanding young sire Querari has a trio of yearlings in the draft, including Ferrari Red (Lot 237). This filly is a half-sister to none other than leading G2 Daisy Fillies Guineas hope Elusive Heart, one of the top fillies of her generation.

The G1 winning Querari is also sire of Tears In Heaven (Lot 180) –a filly whose winning Fort Wood dam is a half-sister to Fillies Guineas winner Maybe Yes, and an unnamed colt out of Saint Angelique (Lot 255). This bay is out of a winning Var half-sister to six time stakes winner Soul Master and hails from the same family as R2 million plus earner Safe Harbour.
Four times Equus Outstanding Stallion Dynasty is the sire of Intombi (Lot 22). This bay is a full-sister to Fillies Guineas/Tibouchina Stakes winner Alexis. Cartier Champion Duke Of Marmalade is another classic sire represented in the Narrow Creek draft. The champion son of Danehill is the sire of an unnamed half-brother (Lot 416) to G3 winner Fantastic Mr Fox and East Cape Nursery hero Fort Winter.

Leading second crop sire What A Winter has two in this draft. The first is Fly Away (Lot 437), a filly (closely inbred to Western Winter) whose winning dam is out of the stakes winning Jet Master mare Start Me Up.

What A Winter is also sire of Fade To Black (Lot 489). This colt is out of a half-sister to two high class Argentinian stakes winners, including G1 winner Quita Nistel.

Narrow Creek has been enjoying a wonderful run of form of late.  The farm’s recent graduates include G3 Man O’War Sprint winner Pinnacle Peak (by Querari), G3 Vasco Prix Du Cap winner Elusive Heart (who ran third in the recent G3 Umzimkhulu Stakes), and  Sentinel Stakes heroine Arianos Shadow (by Querari) .
