Narrow Creek Stud had another fantastic season in 2022-2023, with Narrow Creek alumni earning more than R5.885 million in South Africa last season. Star of the show, however, was Isivunguvungu, a leading Equus Award contender, and winner of both the G1 Jonsson Workwear Computaform Sprint and G1 Mercury Sprint last season. A son of What A Winter and the Tiger Ridge mare Miss Tweedy, Isivunguvungu has earned nearly R1 800 000 in prize money thus far.
The farm will be offering another stellar draft at this year’s August Two Year Old Sale, with Narrow Creek’s August string made up of two-year-olds sired by the likes of Canford Cliffs, Rafeef and champion Soqrat. The latter, himself a champion at two, made a sensational start with his first yearlings averaging R500 000 at this year’s National Yearling Sale.
John Everett describes his August Sale draft as “a nice batch of horses with some potential.”
John has, however, singled out a handful of lots as worthy of special attention.
LOT 131 – This Rafeef colt is well grown, scopey athletic type. Very easy on the eye.
LOT 146 – A high quality, pretty filly with a magnificent pedigree to match.
LOT 163 – A good sized, well grown Canford Cliffs filly. She is a half sister to promising filly Moving In, who was unlucky when close up in the G1 Allan Robertson Championship last season.
This draft can be found in Block C at the TBA Complex in Germiston.
