Vanessa Williams’ Keivan Stud will be offering a smart looking string at the 2022 KZN Yearling Sale.
Based just outside of Greytown, Keivan Stud is famed for producing tough, sound racehorses who have been reared in severe conditions. Vanessa prides herself on raising horses in big paddocks where they have the freedom to run and the ability to adapt to a range of weather conditions.
She says as a breeder she is an eternal optimist and describes herself as a one man band who just loves horses!
Keivan will be offering six yearlings at this year’s KZN Sale, with this draft made up of lots sired by the likes of Duke Of Marmalade, Erupt, Global View, Jay Peg, Master Of My Fate, and Visionaire.
Perhaps the standout lot on offer in this draft is the Visionaire filly (Lot 1) out of the five time winning Kahal mare Kahal’s Secret. This filly is a half-sister to the useful Concealed Secret, as well as to G3 Strelitzia Stakes runner up Captain’s Run -who set a course record over 800m at the Vaal!
Another appealing lot in this draft is the filly (Lot 35) by the red hot Master Of My Fate, with this filly a daughter of Listed Summer Juvenile Stakes queen Only Emily. The latter, a three-parts sister to G1 Gold Challenge winner Undercover Agent, made her mark at stud as the dam of Zimbabwe Derby winner Only Him.
Keivan Stud’s KZN Yearling Sale draft for 2022 can be found in Block A at the Suncoast Casino in Durban.
