The catalogue for the 2021 CTS Farm Yearling Sale (formerly Klawervlei Farm Sale) to be held at De Grendel Wine Estate on 20 June, has been published online at https://capethoroughbredsales.com/sales/2021-fys.
The catalogue has 136 entries, including lots from leading stud farms such as Klawervlei, Ridgemont/Highlands, Wilgerbosdrift, Maine Chance, Nadeson Park and Normandy, with an excellent variety of sires : the in-demand Captain Of All (10 lots), Pomodoro (19), Canford Cliffs (7), Master Of My Mate (3), William Longsword (11), Rafeef (3) and The United States (5).
The catalogue presents an interesting challenge for pedigree experts, for those who have a knack of identifying the right nicks, and who can spot potentially prolific mares, with several first foals as well as unsold lots from the 2021 Premier Sale in the mix. Add to this the late-bloomers among the yearlings, invariably with a few decent runners among them, and the art of spotting good sorts underneath their winter coats becomes a factor.
There are any number of pedigree elements to highlight when taking a closer look at the various lots, but a few jump from the page. These include a half-sister to the listed Secretariat Stakes winner Paisley Park (photo); a half-brother to the listed Darley Arabian winner Guru’s Pride; a half-brother to the multiple graded winner Sargeant Hardy, and a half-sister to the Equus Champion Sprinter Seventh Plain.
Among the first foals are a colt from Gr3 winner Girl On The Run; a colt from Gr2 winner Intergalactic; a colt from Gr2 winner Jo’s Bond, and a half-brother to recent runaway winner Eternity Ring.
