Paul and Lindi Garlicki’s Connemara Stud will be offering three two-year-olds at this year’s National 2YO Sale, which is due to take place at the TBA complex in Germiston on August 15th and 16th.

All three of Connemara’s lots are sired by proven stallions, with the string made up of lots by Elusive Fort, Judpot and Philanthropist.

Just Phenomenal (Lot 172) is a colt by Philanthropist –also sire of the likes of Singapore Sling, Phil’s Dream, Pender Harbour and She’s A Giver. This colt, a half-brother to Dahlia Plate winner Joking and two other winners, is out of a Silvano half-sister to Kwa-Zulu Natal Guineas winner Philonikon, and he hails from the same female line as outstanding sire Malibu Moon and 2000 Guineas winner and successful sire Nonoalco –to name but two!

Elusive Fort, whose daughters include the G1 winners Siren’s Call and Lauderdale, is represented by a filly (Lot 252) in the Connemara draft by the name of Miss Elusive. The latter is a half-sister to 3 winners and is a ¾ sister to eight time winner Sovereign Reign. Further back, this is the family of champion Curioso Slam and G1 winner Must Go On.

Quinpot (Lot 379) is a colt by Judpot –the sire of G1 winners Along Came Polly, Coral Fever, Forest Indigo and Juxtapose, and this well bred colt (closely inbred to the great mare Weekend Surprise) is out of a half-sister to the speedy stakes placed Speed Merchant. Second dam is Gardenia Handicap winner The Eden Project and further back this is the family of G1 winner Proud Pilgrim.
