Swellendam’s Ten Einde Stud has made good progress in recent years, and the stud’s Hein Moller is forever trying to improve the quality of his stock.

Ten Einde has a colt and two fillies to pass through the auction ring at CPYS on 14 March and Moller said: “We sold What A Captain (What A Winter) for R400,000 to Mike de Kock a few years ago, he was a decent sort. We have his full-brother on sale this year, Lot 64, from the mare Free Fall (Captain Al). He’s a big, strong yearling, a ringer for his brother.”

Moller’s first filly is Lot 23, by the much-vaunted Canford Cliffs (IRE), the second foal of a mare by Seventh Rock. “She’s well put-together, this one, and comes from an accomplished European family.”

Lot 158 is by Pomodoro from Silver Candle (Al Mufti), who is a half-sister to the internationally acclaimed racer and broodmare National Colour (dam of Rafeef, Mustaaqeem, etc). “She’s not a big filly, but she has National Colour’s grey coat, her half-brothers by Twice Over were both exported to Mauritius and Sean Tarry trains her half-sister Colour Of Light, already a three-time winner.”
