Lot 73, Vercingetorix filly

Six lots from Far End Stud (as agent) consigned to the CTRS Ready To Run Sale will arriving in Cape Town on Saturday, 17 November and will be ready for viewing next week.

Far End’s Jane Thomas will be there to welcome them on arrival and she said that the members of her draft were nice types who have all done good preparatory work at the KZN farm.

She mentioned, first, Lot 21, Spanish Fort, a colt by Elusive Fort from Spanish Rhapsody (a half sister by Jallad to La Deportista, the dam of Juan Two Three). “He’s a well-balanced colt who gets on with it and is an ideal type for the Ready To Run race.”

Lot 7 is Chrome Gypsy, by What A Winter from Rock Candy (Candy Stripes), who has produced five winners from five previous foals. “She is racy and has a touch of class, should come quickly,” said Thomas.

She also has a soft spot for Lot 73, an unnamed Vercingetorix filly described as “a big galloper”. This one comes from the family of Special Preview and Top Classic, while Lot 71, Artorious is a “lovely balanced” colt by Duke Of Marmalade from a sister to Gr1-winning sprinter Copper Parade.

Note that Far End’s Lot 23 has been withdrawn from the auction.
