Clifton Stud have enjoyed a fine run of success in recent months. Not only did Clifton breed the likes of G3 Godolphin Barb Stakes winner Cliff Hanger, as well as such useful sorts as Captain’s Christy, Mount Pilatus and Star Performr, but Clifton Stud produced a real star in the form of Mrs Geriatrix.

South Africa’s Champion 2YO Filly of 2022-2023, the charismatic Mrs Geriatrix won her first six starts, with her victories including scores in all of the G1 Allan Robertson Championship, G2 Zulu Kingdom Explorer Golden Slipper, G2 World Sports Betting SA Fillies Nursery and Listed Ruffian Stakes.

Peter Blyth will be bringing a smart, nine strong string to the 2024 National Yearling Sale, with his draft made up of yearlings sired by all of Act Of War, Erik The Red, Fire Away and the sensational Met winner One World.
He had the following comments to make about Clifton Stud’s standouts for this year’s National Sale:

Lot 80: Fire Starter c Fire Away -Cascadia
Lots of scope, racy type
Lot 102: Winter Warfare c Act Of War -Covered In Snow
This colt will furnish into a lovely horse.
Lot 109: Titans Of War c Act Of War -Dancing Queen
Lovely first foal, his dam won six and was placed in all of the G3 Magnolia Handicap, G2 Camellia Stakes and G3 Sycamore Sprint.
Lot 131: French War Lord c Act Of War -Esterel
Classy half-brother to Star Performer who won convincingly since the catalogue was printed and now on his way to Hong Kong.
Lot 258: Mysterious Erik c Erik The Red -Mystic Rose
He is a half-brother to Captain’s Christy and is a compact early type with lots of class.

The aforementioned draft can be found in Block E at the TBA Complex in Germiston.
