Bush Hill Stud, one of the leading thoroughbred stud farms found in KwaZulu-Natal, look to be standing a very exciting young sire in the form of New Predator.
A high-class galloper in his own right, the beautifully bred New Predator earned more than R1.8 million on the track, with his wins including triumphs in both the 2016 G2 Drill Hall Stakes and G2 Peermont Emperors Palace Charity Mile. Among the notable horses beaten by New Predator were such stars as July winners Legislate and The Conglomerate, and fellow G1 winners Deo Juvente, Mac De Lago and Rabada.
New Predator is a son of Vodafone Derby winning champion New Approach, one of the very best sire sons of legendary stallion Galileo. To date, New Approach has been responsible for more than 50 stakes winners with his progeny including Epsom classic winners Masar and Talent as well as 2000 Guineas winner and successful sire Dawn Approach.
His son New Predator, whose dam is a daughter of champion Australian sire Fastnet Rock, hails from a high-class family with his relatives including this year’s G1 Yulong Stud Newmarket Handicap winner Roch ‘N’ Horse
Bush Hill Stud will be offering three yearlings from the first crop of New Predator at this year’s KZN Yearling Sale.
Sir Ector (Lot 30) is a colt whose dam won five and he hails from the same female line as speedy stakes winner Torra Bay. Sir Ector’s sire is also represented here by a filly (Lot 151) out of a winning three-parts sister to G1 SA Classic runner up Mister Cricket and by Purple Pitcher (Lot 156). The latter, a colt from the same family as dual G1 winner, and former KZN Yearling Sale buy, Eyes Wide Open, is a half-brother to four winners including this season’s very promising two-year-old Miss Daisy.
The farm will also be offering yearlings sired by Flying The Flag, Global View, Pomodoro and Willow Magic at the 2022 KZN Yearling Sale, and Bush Hill’s draft for the KZN Sale this year can be viewed at Block B at Durban’s Suncoast Casino.
