Maine Chance Farms, leading breeders for many a decade, will present a quality draft at Sunday’s CTS Farm Yearling Sale at Kenilworth Racecourse.

Tim Bootsma of Maine Chance said Lot 2, Facile Flyer is a “very nice filly” by boom stallion Vercingetorix. She is the second foal of Listed-placed Felicity Flyer, by Noordhoek Flyer, and Bootsma is confident she will be a good seller.

They are offering Lot 26 Mela Strength, a colt by deceased multiple champion Silvano.  He is the first foal out of the winning mare by Scat Daddy from the family of Alexander Goldrun.

He is also fond of Lot 54, Sugar Sweet by Erupt, out of Sugar Almond by Al Mufti. “She is strong and speedy,” Bootsma said.

Shout At The Moon, is Lot 58, a “very racy” filly by Erupt from Sylvanite, a decent mare who finished second in the Listed Sweet Chestnut Stakes.

Their other colt is Lot 77 Alexis Zorba, a son of Erupt, and out of the graded-placed Silvano mare, Arissa.

Bootsma likes Lot 103, a daughter of William Longsword out of the mare Equine, by Silvano, who has already produced a black-type filly from only two previous foals. This one is named Enchanting Lady, and the stud manager described her as “very nice and athletic.”
