Bloodstock South Africa are honoured to be offering horses on its May Online Auction on behalf of leading owner, and longtime BSA patron, Michael Javett.

Michael has raced horses successfully in South Africa for many years, supporting many of the country’s trainers and breeders, and he rightfully reaped the rewards through the deeds of many top-class racehorses.

In partnership with Fane Tenderini, Michael was associated with one of the greatest horses ever to grace the South African turf -Politician. 

A R5 250 purchase, Politician won 18 races (11 of which were G1’s) notably back to back runnings of the J&B Met and Queen’s Plate, as well as the 1978 Rothmans July Handicap.

Bred by the Scott Bros, Politician retired to stud having been named South Africa’s Horse Of The Year on three occasions.

Michael has also enjoyed plenty of success in more recent years racing, among others, champion filly Alboran Sea. 

The latter, a daughter of Rock Of Gibraltar, was South Africa’s Champion 3YO Filly Of 2014-2015, with Alboran Sea’s five wins, from just ten starts, including the 2014 G1 Allan Robertson Fillies Championship, 2015 G1 Cape Flying Championship, and the 2015 G1 Computaform Sprint.

Michael also built up a great racing partnership with Mary Slack, with the combination racing many high-class gallopers today including the aforementioned Alboran Sea.

Bloodstock South Africa will be offering the following horses on behalf of Michael Javett at the 2022 May Online Auction:

Sea Anenome: 2 f Dynasty -Alboran Sea

As yet unraced, this filly is bred to be anything as a daughter of former Horse Of The Year and outstanding sire Dynasty and the Rock Of Gibraltar sired champion Alboran Sea.

Sequoia: 3 c Querari -Shasta Daisy

A half-brother to globetrotting G2 Zabeel Mile winner Janoobi, this lightly raced gelding has won twice from just eight starts and looks to have plenty of upside about him!

Bold Resolve: 4 g Master Of My Fate -Queen Of All

Beaten just over a length when fourth last time out, this gelding has already won or placed nine times.

Marmara Sea: 5 g Soft Falling Rain -Alboran Sea

This Eastern Cape star has won or placed in a remarkable 22 of his 26 starts, with Marmara Sea having captured the Listed Memorial Mile in both 2020 and 2021. He finished second, under 62kgs, last time out.

Oscar Wilde: 5 g Dynasty -Lady Windermere 

A son of two champions, and former Grand Heritage contender, Oscar Wilde has won six times and scored over 1600m last time out.

Weisenhorn: 2 g Vercingetorix -Blizzard Belle

As yet unraced, this two-year-old is a half-brother to speedy G3 Strelitzia Stakes runner up Slalom Queen. By South Africa’s hottest active sire, he is out of a stakes placed nine time winning half-sister to G1 winners Viva Maria and Warrior’s Rest.

Red Maple: 2 f Silvano -Cherry Tree Lane

By multiple champion sire Silvano, this filly is a half-sister to the useful Montmerency. Out of a daughter of multiple champion sire Fastnet Rock, her dam is a half-sister to the versatile Sublimity and G3 winner Marbush.

Thunderstruck: 2 c Rafeef -Varikate

Third on his only start to date, this colt is a son of top-class sprinters Rafeef and Varikate.

Montmerency: 3 g Soft Falling Rain -Cherry Tree Lane

A lightly raced three-year-old, he broke his maiden impressively last time out. There is more to come from him!

Porfirio: 3 g Soft Falling Rain -Varuna

A lightly raced maiden, he has finished close up on his last two starts and he should win soon.

Bit Of Fun: 4 g Querari -Larking Around

From an outstanding family, and bred to improve with time, he impressed when romping away with his latest outing. Relatively lightly raced, this dual winner looks capable of adding to his winning tally..
