Ridgemont Highlands, who won the 2022 Farm Sale race with We’re Jamming on Wednesday at Kenilworth, has a variety of yearlings on offer, representing six stallions, at Sunday’s CTS Farm Yearling Sale at Kenilworth.

Their draft is made up of two Canford Cliffs colts, a colt and a filly by Duke Of Marmalade (sire of We’re Jamming), and fillies by Captain Of All, Rafeef, Global View and Horizon.

“This is a good group of youngsters; the Rafeef filly is outstanding, and the Duke Of Marmalades are especially nice. They are all worth a look,” said Ridgemont Highlands’ Craig Carey.

Lot 50 Becky Sharp is the Ridgemont Highlands stallion Rafeef’s specimen referred to above. She is bred out of former Listed Ladies Mile winner Sassy Sal, by High Chaparral, whose first foal has already won a race.

Lot 67 is Switcheroo, a good-looking colt by Duke Of Marmalade out of Vice Versa, by emerging top broodmare sire Var. He is a first foal from the family of Cold As Ice and Live Life.

The other Duke Of Marmalade is Lot 11, a filly named Fast Track, out of the National Assembly mare In Like Flynn, a Listed winner who has already thrown three multiple winners.

The farm’s other resident stallion Canford Cliffs’ Lot 18 is Hoodwink, a son of SA Nursery winner King’s Temptress, who has already given an indication of her stud value with a Listed winner from only two runners.

The other colt by Canford Cliffs is Lot 49, Lines Crossed, a first foal produced by the Var mare, Saltire, who was Listed-placed.

Horizon was mated with the Joshua Dancer mare Empress Award - Lot 102 - for an as yet unnamed filly from the family of Set To Music, and Global View’s mating with Listed-placed Make It Raine (New Approach) produced a first filly foal named Dizzy Heights (Lot 23).

Lot 98 Deoch An Doris is a half-sister to Crimson King by Captain Of All, an interesting cross with Cup Of Rubies, who is by Mogok.
