Farming The Champions!

Save the date - 17 June

One of South Africa’s most popular, and increasingly successful, thoroughbred auctions is set to take place next month.

The 2017 Klawervlei Farm Sale has an exceptionally strong catalogue, with number of high quality lots by some of the country’s leading sires.

Graduates of the Farm Sale, one of South Africa’s newest thoroughbred auctions, have been notching up wins all over the country, and include some of the country’s most exciting racehorses.

Dual stakes winner Barrack Street looks very smart

Among the recent stars to have been purchased off past Klawervlei Farm Sales was the 2017 G1 Investec Cape Derby winner Edict Of Nantes, the undefeated Social Order, and top class 2yo Barrack Street. The latter, whose wins include the G3 Protea Stakes and Listed Storm Bird Stakes, holds an entry in the Gr1 Tsogo Sun Gold Medallion.

Another smart performer sold off the Farm Sale is the smart filly Neala, who has been entered for the G1 SA Fillies Sprint, while multiple stakes winner Door Of Deception was a R130 000 buy from the 2013 sale.

Previous high class performers sold at the Farm Sale include Klawervlei’s exciting resident sire and Equus Champion Sprinter Captain Of All –one of the world’s highest rated sprinters in 2015.

Captain Of All, whose first foals have arrived to rave reviews, cost just R100 000 at the 2012 Farm Sale and went on to earn more than R2.2 million in stakes. His sire Captain Al has eight lots on offer at this year’s sale.

Some of South Africa’s top breeders and stallions are represented at this year’s Farm Sale, with the catalogue also including some yearlings with truly international pedigrees.

Leading local sires represented at this year’s sale include Captain Al, Dynasty, Trippi, and Var while Jet Master’s versatile July winning son Pomodoro has 18 members of his first crop on sale – including a colt out of a winning ½ sister to recent Gr1 winners Rafeef and Mustaaqeem (Lot 96).
