Dr Ian Heyns, the breeder of such high class performers as Copper Force, Dark Moon Rising, Secret Potion, and Star Express, will be offering five lots at the 2019 KZN Yearling Sale.
His draft includes yearlings from some of the best families in the stud book, making this draft a truly mouth watering one!

Hey Penny (Lot 79) is a filly by proven sire Philanthropist out of Breeders Guineas winner Dancing Penny. The latter has done nothing wrong at stud, with each of four runners having won and they include such talented performers as Stockade and Winter Blues, with the latter having recently won for a sixth time.

Philanthropist, whose progeny include the champions Phil’s Dream and Pender Harbour, is also represented in this draft by Feel The Thunder (Lot 85), a colt whose winning dam is the only foal produced by brilliant racemare Diana’s Choice. The latter,  one of the fastest fillies of her generation, won in both Dubai and South Africa, and was victorious in both the G3 Betting World Cape Of Good Hope Nursery and G3 Kenilworth Fillies Nursery.

Consistently successful Querari is the sire of Sugar Gum (Lot 122), who is a half-sister to Sentinel Stakes winner Arianos Bagofgold. Sugar Gum herself is out of a dual winning half-sister to G1 Golden Horse Sprint winner Contador and she is from the immediate family of star filly and former Horse Of The Year Roland’s Song.

Elusive Fort, whose progeny include the Heyns bred Oaks winner Secret Potion, is the sire of Shavout (Lot 150) –a full-brother to a multiple winner, and this colt’s dam is an Al Mufti half-sister to G2 Fillies Championship winner Park Lane.

Short-lived G1 Racing Post Trophy winner Kingsbarns has had, at the time of writing,  just a handful of runners, of which three have won, and the son of Galileo is represented here by Stone Circle (Lot 251), a very well related colt. Stone Circle is out of a Kahal daughter of G3 Flamboyant Stakes winner Precedent –with the latter a full-sister to G1 Empress Club Stakes heroine Legality.
