The keenly-awaited catalogue for the 2019 Cape Premier Yearling Sale has been published online and is available on the CTS website. The sale will be staged on a Wednesday 23 January, and 226 high quality lots have been catalogued.

The sale has a wonderful representation of top sires, starting with leading internationals Camelot (4), Frankel (2), Uncle Mo (2) and Zoffany (2), to South Africa’s Top 5 Captain Al (9), Dynasty (11), Silvano (8), Trippi (6), Var (10) to exciting first-season sires Coup de Grace, Futura, Global View, Legislate and Louis the King.

The catalogue includes an exceptional mix of proven bloodlines, class and recent top-level form with 54 lots out of Stakes winners (incl. 12 out of G1 winners) and 43 siblings to stakes winners (incl. 14 siblings to G1 winners).

International bloodstock expert Grant Pritchard-Gordon, who assisted Kerry Jack and John Kramer with the CPYS Yearling Selection in September, praised the quality of young horses he saw during the process and added his view of the timing of the popular event.

He said: “In Australia, the Magic Millions sale is early in January and in New Zealand they have the Karaka Sale in February. I have noticed that the South African breeders’ view of a yearling sale in January seems to be changing to the positive. They’re starting to see the benefits.”

Wéhann Smith, CEO of CTS, commented: “The 226 lots catalogued equate to roughly eight hours of selling in an ambience conducive to doing great business. We expect an intense, competitive day jampacked with bidding action, which makes for happy clients.”

There will be interest from the first to the last page of the catalogue, with recognisable favourites appearing in most pedigrees:
