Riethuiskraal Stud, whose graduates include such outstanding fillies as Crimson Palace and National Colour, will once again be represented by a strong draft at the Emperors Palace National Yearling Sale.

The Stilbaai based farm brings seven yearlings to next week’s auction, including lots by such popular and proven sires as Querari, Duke Of Marmalade and Ideal World.

Leading sire Querari, whose recent graded winners include Monks Hood, Wonderwall and Pinnacle Peak, has two in the draft. His daughter Enrapture (Lot 54) is out of a half-sister to G2 The Debutante winner Carry On Katie, dam of none other than multiple Equus Champion filly Carry On Alice.
Querari is also responsible for Dancing Sword (Lot 306), a filly who hails from the same Party Time family as such outstanding fillies as In The Fast Lane, Lambarina, Heaps Of Fun and US graded stakes winner Consumer Credit.

Cartier Champion, and sire of more than 50 stakes horses the world over, Duke Of Marmalade is responsible for Lord Melbourne (Lot 128). The latter is a half-brother to seven winners, including G3 Matchem Stakes hero Changingoftheguard and the very speedy five time stakes winner Gilded Moon. Lord Melbourne’s dam is a full-sister to the Riethuiskraal bred Crimson Palace, a G1 winner in both South Africa and the USA.

Kingmambo’s top class son Ideal World has three in this draft, including a colt whose dam is a half-sister to the stakes placed dam of reigning Horse Of The Year Legal Eagle (Lot 335), and a colt whose relatives include the Ideal World sired champion Hermoso Mundo (Lot 406).

Irish 2000 Guineas winner, and proven G1 sire, Black Minnaloushe is also represented in the Riethuiskraal draft. His offering is Abraham Lincoln (Lot 396), a colt who is out of a stakes placed daughter of champion and G1 Paddock Stakes winner League Title.

Riethuiskraal’s National draft has something for every buyer keen to acquire offspring of proven stallions.
