James Armitage, breeder of, among many others, the 2018 G1 G-Bets Gauteng Summer Cup winner Tilbury Fort and Sunday’s GBA Fillies Guineas winner Fast Five, will once again offer a smart string at the Cape Yearling Sale.

The Armitage’s Sandown Stud will be offering four quality yearlings at the March one day sale, and the draft looks sure to include more high class future performers.

Few, if any, colts on the Cape Sale hail from a more impressive current female line than does the Where’s That Tiger colt (Lot 4) out of Western Revival. A ¾ brother to the smart stakes performer Oklahoma Sky, this colt’s Zafonic sired dam was produced by the Sadler’s Wells mare Revival –who numbers the mighty sire Pivotal as a half-brother.

Also from this family are Irish classic winner Araafa, Equus Champion Always In Charge and the latter’s remarkable own-brother Captain Lars who recently notched up his 24th career victory when scoring at Newcastle.

Storm Cat sire Where’s That Tiger, sadly now deceased, is also represented here by a colt (Lot 13) whose winning Jet Master dam is a half-sister to G2 Selangor Cup third Act Fast, and his fifth dam is the superb French champion, and Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe winner, Allez France.

Dynasty’s triple G1 winning son Jackson is represented in the Sandown draft by a filly (Lot 108) whose 3 time winning dam is a ½ sister to the Dynasty sired G3 Politician Stakes winner Blaze Of Noon –making the filly on offer a ¾ sister to Blaze Of Noon.

Irish Champion Pathfork, whose progeny include the G1 winner Mighty High, has a filly (Lot 125) whose four time winning dam is a daughter of multiple champion sire Silvano and she hails from the same family as US G1 winning racemare Citronnade.
