Another high class runner bred by the stud is Saratoga Dancer, who put up a smart performance to finish a close up fifth in this year’s Vodacom Durban July.

The farm will also offer buyers a chance to acquire juveniles from the first crops of such outstanding racehorses as Twice Over and What A Winter.
Among the possible standout lots from this draft are:
Lot 115 –a What A Winter half brother to 2 winners, including the smart stakes winner of six, Cante Libre

These two races, one for fillies and the other for males, are open only for graduates of this sale and each race will be handicapped by the individual price of the BSA graduate entered.
