This season’s star two-year-old filly Quid Pro Quo, who passed through the sales ring at the 2023 KZN Yearling Sale, has won her last three starts culminating in a fine win in the G1 Allan Robertson Championship at Hollywoodbets Scottsville.

A leading contender for Equus Award honours this season, Quid Pro Quo is yet to finish out of the first two with the Barend Botes trained filly having already amassed more than R800 000 in prize money.
Summerhill Equestrian, as Agent, are fortunate enough to be offering several close relatives of this rising star at this year’s KZN Yearling Sale.

Star of this draft looks to be Dee Dee’s Delight (Lot 59), the full-sister to Quid Pro Quo. A daughter of underrated sire Lance, this filly also numbers Listed Ruffian Stakes winner Daring Diva as a half-sister.
The speedy Daring Diva is also represented in this string, with that daughter of King Of Kings having a Lance filly Eponas Lace (Lot 57), a three-parts sister to Quid Pro Quo, on this year’s KZN Yearling Sale.
Queen Of The Spear (Lot 157) is another Lance three-parts sister to the 2024 G1 Allan Robertson Championship winner, with this filly out of Quid Pro Quo’s winning half-sister Queen Diva.
Other attractive prospects on offer include Aethelwulf (Lot 177), a filly by the much missed New Predator out of a winning Var own sister to G1 Mercury Sprint runner up Al Sakeet, and the New Predator filly (Lot 196) out of the winning Var mare Talladega. The latter, whose dam Circle Of Speed is a Sebring half-sister to top-class sire Rafeef as well as to the dam of dual Australian G1 winner Celestial Legend, is a half-sister to speedy G3 Poinsettia Stakes heroine Full Velocity.

Lara Coulon had the following to say about Summerhill Equestrian’s string, “We have six horses on the Durban sale, with sires represented including Rabada, Lance and New Predator. We have a full sister to G1 winner QUID PRO QUO, Lot 59, a filly by Lance out of  5 time winning mare Delightful Diva, who has produced 6 winners from 7 runners. She is definitely one to come see.”
