Riverton Stud, whose alumni include champion sprinter and successful sire Captain Of All as well as last year’s G1 TAB The Premier’s Champions Challenge winner Astrix, will be bringing three eye catching yearlings to this year’s National Sale.
All three of Riverton’s yearlings were sired by G1 winners, with the trio of stallions represented being Captain Of All, Dubawi’s up-and-coming son Erupt, and Met winning champion One World.
Duncan Barry has high hopes for this trio, and says of Riverton’s National Yearling Sale draft.
Lot 71: c Captain Of All out of Seventh Heart
This is a big strong, well-balanced colt with great depth.
Lot 205: c One World out of Brigtnumberfour
I think a lot of this well-balanced, good walking colt who has loads of presence.
Lot 307 : c Erupt out of Heliane
He is a big, strong, great walker with a lovely attitude.
Riverton’s string can be viewed from Block H at the TBA Complex in Germiston.
The Rous Bros, trading as Henham Stud, will be offering two fillies at the 2023 National Sale.
This draft is made up of yearlings sired by successful sires Elusive Fort and Vercingetorix, with the latter responsible for a filly offered on behalf of John Slade.
Hanifah (Lot 63) is an Elusive Fort half-sister to three winners, including former July contender Shah Akbar, and is from the family of outstanding sire Green Desert, while Sky Diamond (Lot 349) is a Vercingetorix half-sister to G1 Premiers Champion Stakes runner up Liberty Hall and is from the same family as this season’s Listed Swallow Stakes winner Kiss Me Captain.
The aforementioned three yearlings can be viewed from Block B at the TBA Complex.
