About us

A brand synonymous with excellence and integrity in the South African bloodstock sales arena for decades, Bloodstock South Africa is the established trendsetting equine auction house on the African continent.

Bloodstock South Africa also enjoys an international reputation for value and quality that extends beyond our borders into the world’s leading racing and breeding jurisdictions.

The sales division of the century old South African breeder national representative body, the Thoroughbred Breeders Association, Bloodstock South Africa has hoisted the flag for the best of South African bloodstock on African soil, and in the international arena, with pride, passion and distinction.

The Thoroughbred Breeders Association is a legacy of the blood, sweat and tears of generations of famous families. These pioneers toiled, plotted and planned to strive to produce a champion – a fleet-footed lifechanger that would fill our horse-passionate nation with pride.

Turning back the clock to 1907, when a South African-bred sprinter called Camp Fire II won Royal Ascot’s King’s Stand Stakes, South African-bred horses have performed with distinction on the world stage.

Names like Colorado King, Hawaii, London News, and in latter years, Victory Moon and Jay Peg, stand proud on an honour roll that drips class and an unparalleled competitive spirit.

In the 21st century, Bloodstock South Africa is owned and operated by South African breeders. The company offers time-tested traditional sales, as well as new-age digital platforms, as they adapt to the ever-dynamic playing field of international thoroughbred auction platforms.

Host to the benchmark setting National Yearling Sale at the Germiston Headquarters in Gauteng Province, Bloodstock South Africa also conduct the biggest National 2yo Sale in South Africa, as well as a wide variety of regional platforms.

History was made in April 2019 at the time-honoured Emperors Palace Bloodstock SA National Yearling Sale, when Mark Richards of the Hong Kong Jockey Club, and South Africa’s international champion Mike de Kock, fought tooth and nail ringside.

The duo were bidding on Masaki, a son of retired SA champion stallion Silvano. The determined De Kock eventually hit the match-winning stroke at R9 million, which surpassed the previous top price paid for a yearling at a South African thoroughbred sale.

The Bloodstock South Africa roll of honour runs deep and includes champions and SA Horses Of The Year of the ilk of Futura, Legislate, Legal Eagle, Do It Again, as well as Kilindini and Missisippi Burning –the winners of the 2019 G1 Cape Guineas and Gr1 Cape Fillies Guineas, respectively, and most recent Gr1 Cape Fillies Guineas star, Captain’s Ransom.

Recent big name Bloodstock South Africa graduates that will be seen on the international stage in 2021, include Australian and SA Gr1 winner Yulong Prince, and Mike de Kock’s multiple Gr1 winning Equus champion Hawwaam.

In a disrupted 2020, Bloodstock South Africa stayed true to the ethos of dedication and service, and continued to offer the very best of the local product via ten individual sales.

The 2021 calendar shows the event total will increase exponentially.

Bloodstock South Africa have adopted the non-negotiable principled approach of implementing international best practice, and are committed to conducting fair and ethical sales that are a platform where breeders and buyers converge, and where the champions of tomorrow are on show for the world.
