The Adv Altus Joubert bred National Colour, South Africa’s Joint Horse Of The Year of 2005-2006, proved an outstanding broodmare in a short career at stud, and the champion daughter of National Assembly continues to make her presence felt across the globe. Not only is National Colour’s G1 Computaform Sprint winning son Rafeef one of South Africa’s leading active stallions, National Colour’s unraced Snitzel daughter Sarraqa is the dam of current star Australian three-year-old Celestial Legend.

The latter, victorious in February’s G2 Precise Air Hobartville Stakes, stamped himself as one of the leaders of his generation in Australian when he won the recent G1 The Agency Randwick Guineas, downing such G1 winners as Militarize and Tom Kitten. Past winners of the Randwick Guineas include a host of star gallopers including Weekend Hussler, Dundeel, Dissident, and The Autumn Sun.

Riethuiskraal Stud, who bred and raised the unforgettable National Colour, will be 12 strong at this year’s National Yearling Sale, and their string includes a very close relative of the aforementioned Celestial Legend.

National Bliss (Lot 90) is a What A Winter half-sister to two winners including G3 Poinsettia Stakes winner Full Velocity, and her dam Circle Of Speed is a twice winning daughter of Sebring and National Colour. Safe to say, this filly is bred to be very speedy indeed!

Met winning champion One World has made a sensational start with his first two-year-olds this season, and the son of Captain Al is represented here by World Order (Lot 116), a half-brother to five winners including G3 Strelitzia Stakes runner up Sabatini. 

Other appealing lots on offer include Diogenes (Lot 76), the Hawwaam colt out of G3 Diana Stakes runner up Captainofmysoul, and Memphis (Lot 255), a daughter of The United States and useful racemare Mulher De Branco.
