The Hemel ‘N Aarde Stud will be offering a large draft of 16 yearlings (three as agent) at this year’s KZN Yearling Sale, which will take place at the Sibaya Casino on July 4th and 5th.
This draft includes yearlings by some of South Africa’s most popular stallions with the likes of Dynasty, What A Winter, and Twice Over all represented, as well as promising first crop sires Coup De Grace and Global View.
Deceased star sire Dynasty is represented in the draft by Mach Four (Lot 102), with this colt (a half brother to six winners) hailing from the same female line as the Dynasty sired Horse Of The Year and four time G1 winner Futura.

Out of a daughter of Jet Master, Mach Four is bred on the same cross as Equus Champion Lady In Black.

Multiple Equus Champion What A Winter has made a scintillating start at stud, with the champion’s first three crops each having produced a G3 Cape Of Good Hope Nursery winner. What A Winter has four lots in this draft including a half-brother (Lot 81) to very promising three-year-old Cedar Man, a filly (Lot 160) whose dual winning dam is a half-sister to G3 Lonsdale Stirrup Cup winner Balance Sheet, and a colt (Lot 164) whose four time winning dam is a daughter of Investec Derby winner Authorized.
European champion Twice Over is the sire of Angry Bird (Lot 28) a filly from the family of international standouts Miesque, Kingmambo, Study Of Man and Alpha Centauri, while Tapit horse Coup De Grace is the sire of a filly (Lot 173) whose winning dam is a Dynasty half-sister to millionaire Masai Warrior.

Galileo’s multiple graded stakes winning son Global View is the sire of a filly (Lot 124) whose G3 placed granddam is a Jet Master half-sister to champion Hammie’s Hooker, while Mother Duck (Lot 57) is a daughter of Irish champion Pathfork from the family of recent G1 Randwick Guineas hero Inference.
Other interesting lots in this draft include the Go Deputy half-brother (Lot 213) to this season’s Castle Tankard hero Peggson, and the Alado full-brother (Lot 55) to the smart filly Pale Lilac –who won again over the past weekend.
