Vercingetorix. Rafeef. One World. Querari. These are just a few of the stallions represented by progeny in Big Sky Ranch’s draft for the 2024 National Yearling Sale. This draft also includes yearlings a number of well bred and high-class racemares, making Big Sky Ranch’s consignment a must-see for all serious buyers. Big Sky’s John Slade is very happy with the horses he will be offering at Germiston this year, saying, “Big Sky has a very good draft of yearlings.All are well grown and correct. The inspectors rated them highly with3 nines, six getting 8.5 and two rated x 8. We also have a nice range of sires represented in the draft, three Rafeefs, three Queraris, and one each of Danon Platina, Futura, Vercingetorix, One World, and Ideal World.”

John singled out the following lots as potential standouts in this string:
The outstanding fillies are:
Lot 338: Spirit Of Shimla f Vercingetorix – Simona by Gimmethegreenlight
She is a super, high quality filly 
Lot 290: Princess Keira f One World -Princess Stephanie, by Kahal
She is a big strong filly. Her dam is a Kahal 1/2 sister to Princess Victoria and Princess Royal the dam of Princess Calla.
Both these fillies are high class and are correct

Of the colts I really like:
Lot 351: Proper c Rafeef x Society Pages by Medaglio D’oro.
Other very good, correct and well balanced colts are
Lot 248: Luwak c Querari-Mochalette, by Count Dubois
Lot 232: c Danon Platina-Mansoor, by Giant’s Causeway
Lot 59: Jetronic c Futura – Berlinetta, by Jet Master
