The Ceres based Boland Stud enjoyed plenty of sales ring success in 2022. Boland topped the 2022 KZN Yearling Sale, where the farm’s Vercingetorix colt out of Varster was knocked down to John Freeman for R1 100 000.
Boland Stud also ended the KZN Sale as Leading Vendor by Aggregate, selling seven lots for a total of R2.21 million.
The farm’s sales ring success continued also had lots make up to R460 000 and R450 000 respectively at last year’s August Two Year Old Sale and November Two Year Old Sale.
Boland Stud will be looking to replicate their fine run of sales ring form when they offer, as agent, a well related Global View filly at the upcoming Cape Yearling Sale.
Already named Cathkin Peak (Lot 181), this filly shares her sire with a number of smart performers including East Cape champion Global Drummer, G3 Track And Ball Derby victor Decorated and this season’s very smart three-year-old Dave The King. The latter has already earned over R1 million in prize money and looks destined for bigger and better things this season.
Cathkin Peak is out of the well bred mare Our Fair Lady, herself a daughter of triple G1 winner Oratorio and top racemare Bambina Stripes, who stamped herself as a leader of her generation when winning the G1 SA Fillies Classic of her year.
Cathkin Peak will be available for viewing in Block A at Kenilworth racecourse.
