Black Swan Stud has enjoyed a good start to 2023, with the farms’ Peter de Beyer responsible for breeding a number of promising winners.

Among this tally is exciting two-year-old Golden Tatjana, who followed up a win in The Trippi Stakes by finishing a close up third in the Listed City Of Cape Town Summer Juvenile Stakes, and she looks a filly with a bright future ahead of her.

Other recent de Beyer bred winners include Celtic Rumours, Everlasting, Umthombo Wolwazi (who has either won or finished second in each of his last four starts), and Pascali.

Peter de Beyer is very happy with the string that Black Swan Stud is bringing to the 2023 Cape Yearling Sale, and has the following to say about the draft.
