South Africa's reigning champion breeders, Klawervlei Stud, will be offering a highly quality, six strong draft at this year's KZN Yearling Sale, due to take place at the Sibaya Casino next month.

The Klawervlei draft is made of lots by such by stallions as Captain Of All, Pomodoro, Silvano, Twice Over and Vercingetorix- making it a must-see draft!
Outstanding stallion Silvano, who recently had a G1 double courtesy of Hawwaam (Daily News 2000) and Silvano's Pride (Woolavington 2000), has two exceptionally well related yearlings in the Klawervlei draft.

His colt (Lot 132) out of Dynaformer mare Ixora is a half-brother to five winners notably US G1 winner Antonoe -whose victories included the G1 Just A Game Stakes, and this is the family of G1 winners Twice Over, Mutual Trust, All At Sea, and Passage Of Time.
The Silvano filly (Lot 237) out of Storm Cat mare Rubicat is another blue-blooded yearling -this filly, a half or full sister to 6 winners, is out of a half-sister to two international group/graded stakes winners from the family of Breeders' Cup Turf winning champion Chief Bearhart.

Silvano's Klawervlei bred son Vercingetorix has made an exceptional start with his first 2yos this season, and the former Equus Champion is represented here by Windbeneathmywings (Lot 154) a colt from the same female line as G1 winners Necklace, Colorspin, Kayf Tara and Opera House -as well top class British 3yo Telecaster.

Champion Twice Over, whose progeny include recent G1 Rising Sun Gold Challenge winner Do It Again, is represented by a filly (Lot 134) whose dam is a half-sister to East Cape star filly Yoshie, while July winner Pomodoro (South Africa's Leading First Crop Sire of last season) is the sire of a colt (Lot 253) whose granddam is a full-sister to multiple champion sire Captain Al.

The latter is himself sire of Equus Champion and red-hot young sire Captain Of All, who is represented in this draft by a colt (Lot 135) whose three time winning dam is a Jet Master half-sister to Laisserfaire Stakes winner Joshua's Mistress.
