Bard Of Avon, 33% on offer.

A dispersal sale of thoroughbreds owned by the Estate of the Late Jumat Cola will be conducted by Cape Thoroughbred Sales (CTS) after the last race at the Vaal racecourse on Thursday, 21 April.

The sale offers three geldings, a colt, and a filly. They are either in training, already racing, or ready to race for the first time, and all but one is based at the Vaal with Ashley Fortune.

Top of the list is the lightly-raced and well-performed Bard Of Avon (VAR), a three-time winner from nine starts and graded-placed up to 1400m. He is a talented performer, with class and scope, and has a good career ahead of him. A share of 33% will be auctioned.

Run For The Sun is a maiden gelding by Pomodoro, who has raced seven times for two places and looks to have a win in him, having run a few fair races.

Master Of Change is a three-year-old gelding by Master Of My Fate, and both he and the three-year-old Where’s That Tiger filly Tsitsikamma Pearl, are ready to be entered for a race. “They are both in full work and doing well, certainly worth a look at” said Andrew Fortune on behalf of Fortune Racing. The filly is a half-sister to the 121 merit rated G1 Mercury Sprint winner, Pearl Of Asia.

Lastly, a two-year-old colt by Rafeef out of Peggy Jay (Jay Peg) called Sound Effect. He was backed last June, and is with Julia Pilbeam at Soetendal Farm in the Western Cape. “He is a tall, quality colt with scope, in work, and ready to go into training straight away,” noted Pilbeam.
