Narrow Creek Stud has enjoyed a tremendous season already in 2021-2022, and they will be looking to build on these fine results at the upcoming National Yearling Sale.
The stud produced its first G1 winner when the Narrow Creek bred colt Red Saxon captured this season’s G1 WSB SA Classic in convincing fashion, but Red Saxon is by no means the only notable flagbearer for his breeder this season.
Other classy sorts representing the farm this season include G1 Wilgerbosdrift SA Fillies Classic runner up Sprinkles, G2 Joburg Spring F&M Challenge/G3 Sycamore Sprint winner Big Burn (a full-sister to the top-class Catch Twentytwo -also bred by Narrow Creek), and promising two-year-old Who Do You Love. The latter won her first two starts impressively and looks feature race bound.
Established in 2011, Narrow Creek Stud has quickly become a force to be reckoned with in the thoroughbred industry.
The farm’s John Everett began his career in the industry when he got work for Laurence Allem in Viljoenskroon. After stints at both Odessa Stud and Wilgerbosdrift, John decided to venture out on his own, and he eventually decided to settle in Wolseley.
Narrow Creek has another fine offering set to come under the hammer at the National Sale at the end of April. This string is made up of yearlings by such top-class and exciting stallions as Erupt, Querari, Rafeef, Vercingetorix, and What A Winter, and also includes yearlings from the first crops of G1 winners Heavenly Blue and Lancaster Bomber.
A definite standout in this string is Bad To The Bone (Lot 422), a Rafeef half-brother to Big Burn and Catch Twentytwo, while Pincher (Lot 447) is a Rafeef half-brother to the aforementioned Sprinkles. Other classy sorts include a Querari half-sister (Lot 128) to G3 Prix Du Cap winner Elusive Heart, and a Rafeef half-sister (Lot 138) to G2 KRA Fillies Guineas victress Alexis.
The aforementioned draft can be viewed in Block C in the TBA Complex in the days building up to the 2022 National Yearling Sale.
