The Cape based Sandown Stud, breeders of champion French Navy as well as the likes of Priceless Jewel, Royal Badge and Zimbabwean star Lily Blue (winner of both the Derby and Oaks in Zimbabwe), will be offering an outstanding draft at this year’s National Yearling Sale.
Not only is Sandown offering yearlings sired by Duke Of Marmalade, Flower Alley, Gold Standard, Master Of My Fate, The United States and William Longsword, the farm will also be offering some blue blooded yearlings on behalf of Shadwell Stud –whose owner Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid al Maktoum sadly recently passed away.
Shadwell, who raced such standouts as Hawwaam, Soft Falling Rain and Soqrat in South Africa, supplied some exceptionally well bred mares to South Africa, and Sandown Stud will be offering a handful of impeccably bred yearlings at the 2021 National Sale.
