Sorrento Stud sold their first Louis The King filly, Romy Lee, for R125,000 at the 2019 Cape Premier Yearling Sale. Her full-brother, King Of Colts, comes up for sale at the 2020 renewal next week.

Annabel Andrews of Sorrento commented: “We were quite happy to get over R100,000 for Romy Lee last year seeing she was the first Louis The King yearling at an auction. 

“Her brother (Lot 52) is a nice, athletic type of horse. He’s black with white markings, quite flashy like his chestnut sister, and he moves well.”

Lot 100 is a big, rangy filly from a well performed family. She’s the only other Louis The King on the sale and bred from the winning mare Spice Girl, by VAR, herself a half-sister to Gr1 Gold Challenge winner, King Of Pain. “She’s big and rangy, well grown for a first foal,” said Andrews.

Lot 201 is Rain Of Peace, by the deceased Soft Falling Rain out of Fairyinthewind (Count Du Bois) from the extended family of Horse Chestnut, Monyela and Cork Wood. ”This one is nice and compact and Soft Falling Rain has always done well, there won’t be too many left to buy.”
