MacRath Farm (Pty) Ltd, acting as agent, will be four strong at the upcoming KZN Yearling Sale. The Macrath quartet were all sired by high-class, G1 winning stallions, with the draft made up of yearlings sired by Rafeef, The United States and What A Winter.

Safe to say there will be plenty of interest in this string!

Rafeef has had an outstanding season in 2023-2024, with his flagbearers including such graded stakes winners as Beating Wings, Mrs Browning, Frances Ethel and the now retired G1 Jonsson Workwear Computaform Sprint winner Thunderstruck, and he is represented in this draft by Water Hyacinth (Lot 16), a filly who has plenty to recommend her. A half-sister to three very smart winners, including 2023 G1 Douglas Whyte Thekwini Stakes contender Soldier’s Eye, Water Hyacinth is out of the high-class racemare Admiral’s Eye -a seven time winner who finished third in all of the G1 Thekwini Stakes, G3 Fillies Mile and G3 Flamboyant Stakes.
The inform Galileo horse The United States has two well bred colts on offer here in the forms of Beyond All Doubt (Lot 6) and Dancing Firelight (Lot 56) respectively. Beyond All Doubt is out of a winning Silvano own-sister to both  Hong Kong G3 winner Chefano and G2 Gerald Rosenberg Stakes runner up Vino Veritas, while Dancing Firelight is out of a stakes placed half-sister to Ruffian Stakes winner Dagmar and he hails from the famous Lily family.
Consistently one of South Africa’s leading sires, What A Winter, is another top-class stallion represented in MacRath’s KZN Sale draft this year. His son Mighty Zambezi (Lot 106), a half-brother to the useful Ideal Act, is a direct descendant of outstanding producer Soho Secret, and thus numbers such stars as London News, Kings Gambit, Malmoos, Master Of My Fate and Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf winning sire Pluck as among his many top-class relatives.

This draft can be viewed from Blocks D and E at the Suncoast Casino in Durban.
