Hendrik Winterbach’s Winterbach Stud will be offering a high quality draft of seven yearlings, four offered as agent, at the 2019 Cape Yearling Sale.
This small but quality draft includes lots by such popular stallions as Gimmethegreenlight, What A Winter and Pomodoro, as well as by exciting young sires as Coup De Grace and Legislate.

The increasingly successful Gimmethegreenlight, whose current star performers include top 3yos National Park and Barahin, is represented in the Winterbach draft by Soller (Lot 51), a half-sister to two winners who was produced by a stakes placed daughter of National Assembly.

Brianna (Lot 176) is a filly from the first crop of Horse Of The Year and four time G1 winner Legislate, and her dam is a half-sister to G2 performer Sky Marshal. This is the immediate family of the very talented G1 performer Noble Secret, who, like Legislate, was sired by leading sire Dynasty.

Multiple Equus Champion What A Winter has wasted no time in making his mark at stud, with his current flagbearer being recent G1 Bidvest Majorca Stakes winner Clouds Unfold. The son of Western Winter is represented in the Winterbach draft by a colt (Lot 102) whose dam is a half-sister to Thundering Jet –a stakes winner in both Singapore and South Africa.

Tapit’s multiple graded stakes winning son Coup De Grace has two fillies from his first crop on offer in this classy consignment. One of his fillies (Lot 105) hails from the immediate female line of international G1 winners English and Grand Lodge, while the other Coup De Grace filly  (Lot 182) was produced by Listed Oaks Trial winner Tuscan Lass.

Jet Master sired July winner, and last season’s Leading First Crop Sire, Pomodoro, is represented here by a colt (Lot 154) whose dam was a six time winning daughter of champion sire Captain Al, while multiple G1 winner Wylie Hall has a colt (Lot 86) whose winning dam is a full-sister to G3 Pretty Polly Stakes winner Mzwilili.
