HIGHLANDS, Part Of Ridgemont, will play host on the Youth Day public holiday next weekend to a star-studded line-up for the CTS 2017 Mares, Weanlings & Fillies For Stud Select sale.
The one day sale presents a great opportunity for the astute buyer to access proven and exciting new families.
There are 115 lots on the select catalogue, with some outstanding black-type racemares up for grabs – and with some of the top stallions potentially inaccessible to non-shareholders at this stage, the likes of Captain Al, Dynasty, Silvano and Var featuring on the list of covering sires will be opportunity points that are likely to attract plenty of interest.
Of obvious great interest will be lucky lot 13, Young Sensation – the National Emblem dam of six-time Gr1 winning SA Horse Of The Year Legal Eagle (Greys Inn), who is in foal again to Greys Inn. Talk about a ticket to Gr1 thrills!
Ze Evah (#14), out of a half-sister to July winner Dancer’s Daughter is one of only two foals by Mozart stallion Amadeus Wolf, and is a half sister to Gr2 Cape Merchants winner, Search Party.
Gr1 Golden Slipper winner Gilded Minaret (#45) is in foal to Lammerskraal stallion Visionaire.
Athassel Abbey (#18) is a daughter of Fastnet Rock and an Irish Oaks winner, and is in foal to Gr1 Tsogo Sun Medallion winning sire, Twice Over
Magnolia Lane (#66), an own sister to champion Yeats, is in foal to Silvano.
