Bush Hill Stud have a fine record of breeding top-class gallopers, with Bush Hill having been associated with such G1 winners as Wolf Whistle, Stellite and Zirconeum, to name a few. The latest equine star bred by Bush Hill Stud is this season’s top-class three-year-old Purple Pitcher. The latter, one of the best horses currently racing in South Africa, has won seven of 11 starts thus far, with Purple Pitcher having claimed all of the G1 TAB SA Derby, G1 TAB SA Classic and G2 Jonsson Workwear Dingaans this season.

Bush Hill will be offering two very smart yearlings at the 2024 National Yearling Sale in the form of a colt by the sensational Rafeef, as well as a filly by proven G1 sire Act Of War.

Warwick Render had the following to say about his National Sale destined pair.
“We have what I believe to be two quality individuals on the sale.
The Rafeef colt (Lot 82) is very typical of his sire and damsire (Jet Master) a tall scopy individual with loads of quality.
The Act Of War filly (Lot 213) is in effect a three parts sister to his best performer so far in War Of Athena. She is a well balanced, correct filly with class and a good temperament.”

Bush Hill’s two lots can be viewed from Block E at the TBA Complex in Germiston.
