Hein Moller and family of Swellendam’s Ten Einde Stud have put in hard work to make their farm competitive as a vendor in recent years; their foals are looking good and Hein is expecting a good CTS Ready To Run and Mixed Sale, next week.

He bought Lot 82 from the Moutonshoek Dispersal. This is a Rafeef colt from Relentless Storm (Hennesy) who was a talented race filly and has produced five winners from six runners, threatening to throw a top horse. “This one was a late bloomer, but he’s coming along steadily, he’s very nice,” said Moller.

Lot 85 is Jackson filly from Ruby Heart, already the dam of seven winners including this filly’s full-brother Khopesh, a very useful dual winner who was injured before he could reach his classic potential. “I am very happy with her,“ said Moller.

Lot 137 is Hearts Thunder, a colt by Grey’s Inn from Heart Of Destiny, by Danzero, whose only foal to race was a decent Judpot colt who finished second in the Ready To Run Cup of his year. “I’m excited about this one, he’s athletic and smart, certainly one buyers should come and have a look at.”

Lot 160 (Coup De Grace) was unsold at the National Sale in April, but she’s come on leaps and bounds and Moller told: “She was too immature for Nationals, she’s looking much better now!”

The same for Lot 162, Future Thinker, who is a different filly now than she was in April. She’s by Visonaire, and is the first foal of Miss Einstein (VAR), who hails closely from a family of powerhouse sprinters including Schiffer, My Kazzie, Royal IQ and Mentor.
