In 2018, Riverton Stud hit the heights at the National Yearling Sale when they consigned a Captain Al filly out of Fiesta Queen to fetch R2 900 000, the top price paid for a filly at the National Sale that year.
Named Cousin Liz, the filly showed plenty of ability on the tracks, winning her first two starts including the 2019 G3 Kenilworth Fillies Nursery.

Riverton Stud will be hoping history repeats itself when they offering a blue blooded half-brother (Lot 160) to the aforementioned Cousin Liz at this year’s November Two Year Old Sale.

A son of outstanding sire Vercingetorix (famously pinhooked by Riverton’s Grooms Co-Op back in 2010), this colt in question is not only a half-brother to Cousin Liz but also to the very talented, dual G3 winner Gimme One Night and the stakes placed pair of Demagogue and Queen Of Alamo.

Other standout lots in this string include The United Stakes half-brother (Lot 47) to the smart Captain Oupie, who hails from an outstanding international family, and Choc’Late (Lot 87). The latter, a daughter of the very much inform stallion Futura, is a half-sister to four decent winners notably classy G2 World Sports Guineas runner up Supreme Warrior with this filly also hailing from the immediate family of outstanding sprinter Flobayou among many others!

The Riverton string can be found in Block H at the TBA complex in Germiston.
