In 2019, Riethuiskraal Stud sold a Judpot colt to Riethaan Belegging for just R15 000 at the KZN Yearling Sale. The colt, named Flying Carpet, went on to score at the highest level, with the Judpot son victorious in the 2021 G1 World Sports Betting Presents The Gauteng Summer Cup.  In landing the Summer Cup, Flying Carpet accounted for a very high-class field, with his beaten opponents headed by the G1 winners War Of Athena, Puerto Manzano, Astrix, Sparkling Water, Al Muthana, Got The Greenlight and Malmoos.

This year, Riethuiskraal will be bringing an imposing, quality draft to the KZN Sale, where buyers will have their chance to acquire the next Flying Carpet.
Among the stallions represented in this consignment are Futura, Hawwaam, One World, The United States, and Twice Over.
Met winning champion One World has made a sensational start with his first runners this season and the son of Captain Al is represented here by Economic Life (Lot 73), a half-brother to five winners who hails from the same “E” family as champions Empress Club, Ecurie and Elusive Fort to name but a few.
The United States, whose flagbearers this season include high-class two-year-olds Kingdundee and Rodeo Drive, has three lots on offer. Divine State (Lot 112) is a half-sister to the stakes placed Balalaika from the family of Yataghan and Gallantry, while the beautifully bred Quarter Master (Lot 161), who hails from the immediate family of hugely successful sire Querari, is a half-brother to four winners including G3 Acacia Handicap runner up Queen Of Shadows.
The United States is also sire of the cleverly named Latin America (Lot 173) whose six time winning dam Sao Paulo is a full-sister to Listed KZN Guineas Trial runner up Trip To Rio. Both Quarter Master and Latin America are bred on the same cross which produced the high-class filly Sheela.
Silvano’s champion son Hawwaam has made a big impact with his first yearlings this season and that former Equus Champion is the sire of Tristan Da Cunha (Lot 96), a filly from a high-class family. A half-sister to five winners, Tristan Da Cunha is out of a stakes winning daughter of Danehill Dancer, and her granddam La Linotte is a half-sister to the dam of G1 winners Lily Of The Valley and Mubtaahij.
