Boland Stud and Cheveley Stud, two of the country’s top thoroughbred nurseries and both based in the Ceres valley, will both be represented at the upcoming Cape Yearling Sale.

Boland Stud, whose recent alumni include the course record breaker Cruise Control, will be offering a trio of quality yearlings, sired by such exciting prospects as Danon Platina, Rafeef and The United States. The latter, who made such a splash with his first runners last season, is responsible for a filly (Lot 72) whose dam is a winning half-sister to Equus Champion Via Africa -herself the dam of star Australian galloper, and G1 XXXX Golden Rose winner, In The Congo.

Red hot sire Rafeef, sire of recent graded stakes winners Aragosta and William Robertson is represented here by Nelson Bay (Lot 30) -a colt whose granddam is G1 SA Fillies Classic heroine Bambina Stripes, while exciting young Deep Impact horse Danon Platina, whose first crop are yearlings, is the sire of a colt (Lot 134) whose dam is a stakes winning daughter of top-class sire Querari.

Situated close to Boland Stud is the Cheveley Stud -breeders of umteen top-class horses including Horse Of The Year Legislate and star filly Bela-Bela, to name but two. Cheveley will be bringing a small but quality string to the Cape Sale, with their draft made up of yearlings sired by all of Fire Away, Lancaster Bomber, The United States and reigning South African champion sire Gimmethegreenlight. The latter is represented here by a regally bred colt (Lot 7) whose speedy, G3 placed dam is a full-sister to the G1 winning champion Talktothestars.

Sadly, War Front’s G1 winning son Lancaster Bomber is deceased, but that top-class galloper is represented in Cheveley’s string by a half-sister (Lot 25) to two winners and her dam is a full-sister to G1 SA Fillies Sprint runner up Maelstrom.

Fire Away is another son of War Front represented here -he is the sire of a colt (Lot 85) from the famed Miss Lindeman family, while exciting G1 Ranvet Stakes winner The United States’ sole offering in this draft is a beautifully bred filly (Lot 41) out of Commands’ G3 Flamboyant Stakes winning daughter Queen’s Command.
