BLACK SWAN TO OFFER CLASSY PAIR AT NATIONAL SALE


The Black Swan Stud will be offering two well bred yearlings at the 2020 Emperors Palace National Yearling Sale.


Equus champion Elusive Fort, whose previous notable progeny include such G1 winners as Sirens Call and Lauderdale, has had another good season in 2019-2020 thus far, with the triple G1 winners star flagbearers headed by G1 SA Derby winner Out Of Your League, Listed Aquanaut Handicap winner Chitengo and Southeaster Sprint hero Elusive Trader.


Elusive Fort is represented here by a full-brother (Lot 48) to four winners notably G3 Poinsettia Stakes/G3 Champagne Stakes winner Freedom Charter and exported Sophomore Sprint victor Ernie. Out of a winning daughter of multiple champion sire Captain Al, this colt also numbers July winning champion Gondolier, G1 winning sprinter San Carlos, and SA Derby runner up Classic Oasis as relatives.


The ever popular Querari, South Africas Leading Sire of 2YOs in 2018-2019, is another inform stallion represented in Black Swans National Sale draft.


Sire of such top class fillies as Querari Falcon, Cockney Pride, Cosmic Light and Mill Queen, Querari is the sire of a filly (Lot 223) whose dam, Julila, is a Silvano half-sister to G2 Drill Hall Stakes runner up Real Red.


Bred on the same Querari/Silvano cross as the stakes winners Cosmic Light, Wonderwall and Luna Wish, this fillys granddam Cocessa is herself a half-sister to 2 stakes winners, including Bianconi -who defeated none other than champion Dynasty when victorious in the 2002 G2 Golden Horseshoe.
