Horses sold off past renewals of the KZN Yearling Sale have enjoyed fantastic success on South African racecourses in the past few months.
Star three-year-old Purple Pitcher, a R170 000 purchase off the 2022 KZN Yearling Sale, stamped his Equus Award claims this season when victorious in all of the G1 TAB SA Derby, G1 TAB SA Classic, and G2 Jonsson Workwear Dingaans, with the classy sophomore having already taken his earnings to over R2.536 million with the promise of plenty more to come.
Fellow star three-year-old Frances Ethel, a R160 000 buy from the 2022 KZN Sale, showed her class when following up a score in this season’s Listed Ormond Ferraris Oaks Trial when storming home to land the G2 Wilgerbosdrift Bridget Oppenheimer SA Oaks and she looks destined for even bigger and better things.
Crimson King, purchased for R200 000 at the 2019 sale, is another current flagbearer for the KZN Sale. The son of Dynasty, victorious in both the 2021 G3 World Sports Betting Pocket Power Stakes and 2023 G3 SplashOut 2200, has had a fine season in 2023-2024 with Crimson King having won both the Listed TAB Aquanaut Handicap and Listed TAB Gold Bowl this season.
Yet another KZN Sale purchase, Celtic Beauty captured this season’s Listed World Sports Betting Scarlet Lady, while promising two-year-old filly Just Reckless, bought for R500 000 off last year’s auction, won the 2024 G3 Tabgold Strelitzia Stakes in tremendous style.
