Gauteng farm Heversham Park Farm will be offering a pair of well bred yearlings at next month’s Emperors Palace National Yearling Sale.

The Toreador filly (Lot 355) shares her sire with Equus Champion Link Man and multiple G1 winner Bull Valley, and her dam is G2 Ipi Tombe Challenge winner First Again. Further back, this is the family of Met winner Ding Dong and Gold Cup winner Exeter Chimes.
Galileo’s multiple graded stakes winning son Global View is represented in this draft by a half-brother (Lot 489) to the very exciting G1 performer Herodotus, who looks destined to win a really good race, having already finished third in the 2019 G1 Gbets Cape Derby. The colt on offer is from a top class family, with his other relatives including the outstanding racemare, and multiple G1 winner, Sea Siren and former Gauteng Guineas winner Oracy. This colt is directly descended in female line from the great mare Cinna, who also ranks as the ancestress of legendary racehorse and stallion Sunday Silence.

Heversham is located in the scenic unspoilt Daleside Valley, just south of Johannesbuburg, and is overlooked by the majestic Paardekop.
The farm’s water supply comes from a natural spring, which is high in calcium and other minerals, ensuring that all animals that are raised on the farm are healthy.
Heversham Park, under the guidance of seasoned horseman, Advocate Nigel Riley, is being developed as a thoroughbred stud farm and boarding facility and is currently home to two resident stallions in Moofeed (AUS) and Wings Of Desire (IRE).
