Barbara Sanne, who bred international Graded stakes winner and Dubai World Cup runner Sanshaawes, will be sending five yearlings to the Cape Premier Yearling Sale from her Oldlands Stud.

Early up will be a What A Winter colt (Lot 15), the first foal of the speedy Kabool mare Geolina, who had excellent gate speed but went wrong and was retired. Bred to fly, he’s described as a “very correct” yearling that will offer value to buyers.

Lot 124 is from the same family as Lot 15. She’s a Jay Peg filly from Royal Habit, a mare by Dominion Royale who produced Gr1 SA Classic winner English Garden. “With Jay Peg being by the deceased Camden Park, this is the closest mating we’ll get to English Garden. She is a wonderful filly. She was born a powerhouse and she still is,” said Sanne.

Lot 236 is by Oratorio from Darling Moon. He’s the first foal of a Listed-placed mare, herself a half-sister to Astro News from a staunch female line.

Next up Lot 243, a VAR colt from well-related Earn A Moon (two winners from two previous foals), and Sanne said: “He’s a nice, athletic type. His brother Moonrise Sensation was tall and lanky, but he is more ‘together’ than Moonrise Sensation.”

Lot 246 is a very “rangy” filly by Vercingetorix. She’s a half-sister to stakes winners Tar Heel and Gr2 Guineas winner Go Indigo. “This sale comes a bit early for her, but she has a top female line and offers plenty of value, she will mature.”
