Danika Stud, whose graduates include such champions as Kings Gambit and Kochka, will be offering a trio of high quality yearlings at next Thursday/Friday’s KZN Yearling Sale, due to take place at the Sibaya Entertainment World.

Son Of San (Lot 19) is a colt by red-hot sire Gimmethegreenlight, sire of recent G1 Daily News 2000 winner Surcharge and impressive two-year-old stakes winner Barahin.
This well bred colt, whose first three dams are all black type performers, is out of a stakes placed daughter of champion sire and emerging broodmare sire Trippi. Son Of San’s second dam, Fort Wood’s G2 Gold Circle Oaks third Santiago, is a half-sister to 2yo stakes winner Berlusconi.

Palmheart (Lot 204) is a daughter of triple G1 winner Oratorio, whose 50 plus stakes winners include recent G1 Tsogo Sun Gold Medallion winner Van Halen. This filly is a half-sister to Devon Air Stakes runner up Mazari and is out of a half-sister to King’s Cup runner up Royal Armour. Palmheart’s second dam is a 3 time winning half-sister to the Danika Stud bred Equus Champion, and G1 Premiers Champion Stakes winner, Kochka.

The third of the Danika Stud draft on offer is an unnamed colt (Lot 229) by multiple G1 winner, and $2 million plus earner, Gitano Hernando.
The colt in question is a half-brother to a winner, and is out of a daughter of Southern Cross Stakes second Lady Acton –a full-sister to Equus Champion and Gold Medallion winner Historic Lady.

He is also from the same family as G1 Oaks winner Velozia and recent high class performers Barbosa and Captain’s Flame.
