Duncan Barry’s Riverton Stud will be represented three high class fillies at next week’s Emperors Palace National Yearling Sale.

Riverton Stud have bred numerous high class racehorses over the years, including Cape Guineas winner Domino Man, millionaire Tales Of Bravery, and Equus Champion Sprinter Captain Of All.

The latter, whose first foals arrived to rave reviews, is, this time around, represented as a stallion in the Riverton Stud National Sale draft.

Captain Of All, whose trio of G1 wins included a 4.5 length romp in the 2015 Mercury Sprint, is the sire of Her Eminence (Lot 236). This bay, a member of her sire’s first crop, is out of a winning half-sister to G3 Godolphin Barb Stakes winner Hard Rock, and is also very closely related to the dam of G1 Gold Medallion winner Potent Power, with the latter’s dam sharing her sire Captain Al with Captain Of All himself.

Captain Of All’s champion sire Captain Al (sire of recent G1 winners Snowdance, Tap O’ Noth and Sergeant Hardy) is represented in the Riverton draft by his daughter Cousin Liz (Lot 150). This filly, whose dam has had five winners from five runners including a stakes performer sired by Argonaut, is out of a winning half-sister to four stakes horses, including G1 Empress Club Stakes winner Fair Maiden, and to the dam of G3 Acacia Handicap winner Amur Affair. Cousin Liz’s second dam is the very smart racemare Fair Bianca, and her third dam was the stakes winning mare Busy Lizzy.

Riverton Stud will also be represented by She’s A Cracker (Lot 506), a daughter of the well bred Storm Cat stallion Where’s That Tiger. This filly, a half-sister to a winner, is from a red hot family, with her dam’s stakes winning half-sister, Secret Obsession, dam of recent G2 Wilgerbosdrift Gauteng Fillies Guineas second Silver Thursday.

Another half-sister to the dam of the Where’s That Tiger filly is Golden Slipper winner Princess Sassi.
She’s A Cracker hails from a cracking female line, with her other notable relatives including Equus Champion Sprinter Mythical Flight and the stakes winning racemares Hell’s Angel, Little Mo, and Mana Mou.
