PAARL DIAMANTE OFFER A CHOICELY BRED COLT AT NATIONAL SALE

The Cape based Paarl Diamante Estate, As Agent, will be offering a superbly bred colt at this year's Emperors Palace National Yearling Sale.
This colt is a son of Varsfontein Stud's G1 L'Ormarins Queen's Plate winning sire Gimmethegreenlight, South Africa's Leading First Crop Sire of 2015-2016.
A son of one of the world's leading stallions More Than Ready, Gimmethegreenlight has proved hugely successful since retiring to stud in 20112. His nearly 50 black type horses include an Equus Champion in Got The Greenlight, as well as fellow graded stakes winners Surcharge, Gunner, Gimme Six, Barahin, Gimme One Night, National Park, Green Pepper, Green Plains, Hack Green, Third Runway, La Bella Mia, and Rose In Bloom.
Currently one of the hottest stallions in the country, Gimmethegreenlight's progeny have banked over R8 753 million this season, and his sons Got The Greenlight, Green Laser and Youcanthurrylove recently ran 1-2-3 in the G1 SA Classic.
Gimmethegreenlight is also the sire of a colt (Lot 222) out of the well performed mare Joshua's Mistress, winner of the Betting World Laisserfaire Stakes and third in the G1 Cape Fillies Guineas. The Joshua Dancer mare has already enjoyed success at stud as the dam of the very smart performer Mr Bond, and eye catching recent debut winner Remus.

A half-sister to the three time winning dam of G2 Gold Bowl runner up Lion's Emblem, Joshua Mistress's own dam Modelia is herself a half-sister to the G3 Champagne Stakes winning dam of G3 King's Cup winner Social Order.

This is also the family of July winning champion Heavy Metal, and fellow G1 winners Drum Star, For The Lads and Planetary Music, as well as current star galloper Twist Of Fate.
