John Koster of Klawervlei has identified seven of his favourites among the 26-strong Klawervlei draft representing the farm, the farm as agent, and the Klawervlei Grooms Trust, to be sold at Sunday’s 2022 CTS Farm Yearling Sale. Most are unnamed.

Lot 5 : colt by Pomodoro out of Garibondy, by Var “His dam was very speedy : she won six races over 1000m, and she is by Var who is turning out to be a very special broodmare sire. A quality colt, good size on the leg with scope and looks very athletic.”

Lot 25 : filly by Pomodoro out of Marquesa Naranja by Duke Of Marmalade “This filly is a half-sister to Alexander Goldrun, who was joint top filly on the international four-year-old classification, and champion four-year-old filly in Ireland. She had 10 wins, including 5 G1s. A great international pedigree.”


Lot 41, Pomodoro colt.

Lot 41 : colt by Pomodoro out of Possible Dream, by Captain Al “Captain Al is already the broodmare sire of 36 stakes winners, at 5.6%.  The mare won five races, was G1 placed, and is already the dam of three winners. She is a sister to Contador, who was a G1 winner. From the family of former Horse Of The Year Roland’s Song, winner of 14 races including 5 G1s. A great old Koster family.”

Lot 42 : filly by Pomodoro out of a Fort Wood mare “She looks a racehorse this one, she has got a great shape. Her dam, Princess Milo, is a half-sister to Slumdogmillionaire, who won the G1 SA Classic and the G1 Horse Chestnut. Her half-brother has been entered for a Graded race on July day.”

Lot 79 : colt by Visionaire out of Big Mona, by Yes It’s True “This is a high quality colt, with a good shape, and he is a half-brother to five winners, including a pair of Group 3 winners.”

Lot 85 : Dance Mo : filly by Royal Mo out of Care to Dance (CAN) by Smart Strike (CAN) “This filly is out of an imported mare from an international family. Uncle Mo over the Mr Prospector line has produced 7% stakes winners to runners. This filly is smart, with rein, depth, and scope. She is athletic, I like her a lot.”


Lot 95, What A Winter colt.

Lot 95 : colt by What A Winter from Cordial Report, by Spectrum “A quality colt, with depth and good hind quarters. He walks well, looks athletic. His dam is a half-sister to dual G1 winners Highland Night and Warm White Night, a top-class Highlands pedigree.”
