Bloodstock South Africa are pleased to announce the catalogue for the 2018 KZN Yearling Sale is now online and can be viewed live at
The two day auction is due to take place at Sibaya Entertainment World on July 5th and 6th, just before the running of the 2018 Vodacom Durban July.

The Natal Sale has long been established as one of South Africa’s most popular thoroughbred auctions, as well as a sale which produces top-class athletes for bargain basement prices.
Among the numerous stars purchased off this sale in years gone by are this season’s G1 Investec Cape Derby winner Eyes Wide Open, recent Equus Champion Hermoso Mundo and this season’s impressive recent Strelitzia Stakes heroine Inverroche and fellow recent graded stakes winners Red Chesnut Road, My Friend Lee, Al Mariachi and O Tamara..

Other star performers to have graduated from the KZN Sale include Triple Crown winning sire Louis The King, G1 Allan Robertson winner Happy Valentine, Equus Champion and G1 Gold Cup winner Wild One, G1 SA Derby winner Seal, multiple G1 winner Same Jurisdiction and KZN champion Virgo’s Babe. The latter was not sold at the 2012 sale but went on to land the G2 SA Fillies Nursery and bank more than R800 000 in prize money.

Graduates of this sale automatically qualify for the 2019 KZN Yearling Sale Million which will take place next year on Vodacom Durban July day.
