Leading Cape nursery, Avontuur Thoroughbred Farm, will be offering three well bred lots at the upcoming Cape Yearling Sale.
Avontuur will be offering a trio of colts sired by Erupt, Oratorio and their late, great resident sire Var at this year’s Cape Sale.
Typically French (Lot 4) is a beautifully bred Var own brother to G1 Golden Horse Casino Sprint winner Normanz and half-brother to the very useful Tripandie, and he should prove very popular in the sales ring!
Avontuur bred the very first winner by Erupt in the form of Set To Go, and Erupt is represented here by the well related Volcanic (Lot 109). The latter is out of a G3 placed full-sister to Equus Champion, and four time G1 winner Mother Russia -herself dam of fellow Equus Champion Nother Russia!
Presley (Lot 128) is a cleverly named colt by Avontuur’s successful sire Oratorio out of the winning Silvano mare Charisma -a half-sister to G1 winning sprinter Contador.
Beaumont Stud, breeders of the mighty Variety Club as well as eye catching recent debut winner Trompie, bring a colt by Canford Cliffs and a filly by Futura to the Cape Sale this year. Sire of brilliant recent debut winner Body Electric and Saturday’s impressive Listed City Of Cape Town Summer Juvenile Stakes hero Cliff Top, Canford Cliffs is responsible for a colt (Lot 16) out of G3 Sycamore Sprint runner up Mary Stuart, while Horse Of The Year Futura is the sire of a half-sister (Lot 146) to four winners -one of whom won seven times.
Black Swan Stud, home to champion Elusive Fort-whose son Kommetdieding ran out such a popular winner of Saturday’s G1 World Sports Betting Cape Town Met, will be offering, as agent, two colts at the 2022 Cape Yearling Sale.
Slainte Mhath (Lot 98) is a Duke Of Marmalade half-brother to the useful What A Honey, while Sea The Stars’ son Quasillo is represented in this draft by a colt (Lot 177) from the same female line as legendary South African champion Politician -among many others!
The 2022 Cape Yearling Sale is set to take place at Kenilworth racecourse on Sunday February 27th. The online catalogue can be viewed at www.bsa.co.za
