Paarl Diamant Estate, situated between Klapmuts and Stellenbosch near Varsfontein, has prepared four two-year-olds on behalf of clients for the CTS Ready To Run Sale on 23 November.

Monique Schabort of Paarl Diamant said there is likely to be value in all four – they have been broken in and breezed and look promising.

Lot 34 is Salvadora, a “beautiful big filly” by Oratorio from Vive La Belle, who is a half-sister to multiple stakes winner Lady Of The Turf from the immediate family of King Of Pain.

Lot 49 is Fort Royal, by Elusive Fort from Among Royalty, by Among Men. Her dam is a half-sister to the exported Gr1 winner Gypsy’s Warning, as well as stakes winners Surabi and Romany Prince. She has a 100% record at stud, having produced four winners from four previous foals.

Lot 59 is a VAR colt named Sniper Fire and he’s said to be “very solid and strong”, traits that can be seen in his photo supplied. “He’s probably my favourite of the four,” said Schabort of Sniper Fire, whose dam First Burst is a half-sister to stakes winner Winter Burst. He’s related to several other black-type runners including Quick As Lizard and Burst.

Elusive Force (Lot 72) is another daughter of Elusive Fort, whose fillies are always in demand.  Shabort commented: “She’s quite a strong-willed dark bay filly, but actually very tame. She’s all calm once the saddle is on and looks a racy type.”
