The Rous Bros, trading as Henham Stud, will be offering two well bred colts at this year’s KZN Yearling Sale, set to take place at the Sibaya Casino on July 4th and 5th.

Winter Guard (Lot 236) is a colt by triple Equus Champion and red hot sire What A Winter, whose progeny include brilliant G1 winner Clouds Unfold, the graded stakes winners Dutch Philip and Magical Wonderland and hugely exciting two-year-old Armando. This colt, a half-brother to four winners, is out of a winning Jet Master daughter of SA Oaks winner Royal Prophecy –a full-sister to fellow SA Oaks winner Noble Destiny.
Talisman (Lot 279) is a colt by the very popular young Galileo stallion Global View, himself a graded stakes winner at both two and three. This colt is out of a winning Captain Al own sister to high class stakes performer Show A Profit, and his granddam is a half-sister to the remarkable Midnight Run. The latter, despite nearly drowning early in his career, won 14 times, with Midnight Run’s wins including a trio of stakes victories.

Further back, this is the family of champion Golden Taipan and G1 winners Lyrical Linda and Liege –who triumphed in the recent G3 Lonsdale Stirrup Cup.
