Al Mariachi (Gr 3 winner), has a half-brother by Pomodoro on CPYS

Three breeders appear under “R” in the Cape Premier Yearling Sale Catalogue and they’ve all got something good to offer on 20 and 21 January.

Riethuiskraal Stud has a single lot (226), a colt by Duke Of Marmalde called Lord Melbourne. “He looks a lot like his sire, he’s solid and strong and walks well,” said Kassie Robbertze, Stud Manager. “He’s the last foal of Counter Foil, a full-sister to Crimson Palace.”

Duncan Barry of Riverton Stud has sent five of his mares to freshman stallion Pomodoro, who looks like he’s doing the job. He brings a Pomodoro colt from Senorita (Lot 134) and commented: “He’s nice and correct, an athletic half-brother to stakes winner Al Mariachi, who can win again this weekend!”

Riverton’s Lot 203 is a colt by Querari from Belle Of Choice who “looks like a sprinting type, she has good girth and big quarters”.

At Rosedene Stud, Graeme Koster is fond of Lot 80, a Grey’s Inn filly from a Giant’s Causeway mare who has already produced a stakes-placed colt. “She’s very nice,” he said.

Lot 81 is Flycatcher, by Jackson, who comes from the family of Gold Medallion winner Carnadore and is a good walker who seems to lean towards the speed in his Trippi dam, Tudor Vino.

Lot 238 is a Flower Alley filly from a mare by Fort Wood. “She a nice filly, she has a beautiful head and she comes from the family of Fair Maiden,” said Koster.
