KZN farm Summerview Stud will offer five yearlings at the 2018 KZN Yearling Sale, which is set to take place at the Sibaya Entertainment World on July 5th and 6th.

The Summerview draft includes lots by popular young sires Crusade, Gimmethegreenlight and Noble Tune –making this draft a must-see for any discerning buyer.

Shammah (Lot 123), a filly by G1 Prince Of Wales’s Stakes winner Byword, is first of the Summerview draft up for sale. This filly is out of a speedy stakes placed winning daughter of top sprinter Choisir –who is already broodmare sire of G1 winners My Dream Boat, Winter and Persuasive.

Indian Ridge’s multiple G1 winning son Linngari has a smart sort to his name in the form of Apache Mountain (Lot 193). This chestnut colt is out of a winning sister to high class galloper, and Dubai winner, National Icon, and this is the same family as G1 winner Pick Six.

Unbridled’s Song’s Breeders’ Cup runner up son Noble Tune has made a pleasing start to his stud career with a number of winners to his name already. Noble Tune is the sire of Coup D’Or (Lot 232), a filly whose winning Tiger Ridge dam is a granddaughter of the very successful Madam Du Barry. The latter is ancestress of a host of top gallopers headed by G1 Summer Cup winner Liege and champion sprinter Rebel King.

Middle Park Stakes winner Crusade has made a bright start to his stud career, with stakes winners having emerged from both his first two crops to race. The son of Mr. Greeley is the sire of the cleverly named Ramsay (Lot 253), who is out of a speedy, five time winning daughter of stakes winner School For Chefs. This is the same family as once beaten, 2000 Guineas winner Brigadier Gerard.

Lil Green Gretna (Lot 259) is a daughter of red hot sire Gimmethegreenlight, sire of, among others, recent G1 Daily News 2000 winner Surcharge. A full-sister to stakes performer Green Lantern, this filly is out of a winning Fort Wood half-sister to SA Fillies Nursery winner Dash For Gretna. She is bred on the same Gimmethegreenlight/Fort Wood cross as graded stakes winners Green Pepper and Hack Green.
