Are You Ready – To Harbour A Dream?

Safe Harbour wins the 2016 Lanzerac Ready To Run Stakes

Safe Harbour’s victory in the 2016 Lanzerac Ready To Run Stakes was proof on the hoof that real value can be found on any page at this quality sale.

She was the first filly to win the rich event and it took an outlay of just R180 000 to take her home. That opens the parameters to dreams and cheque books of all hopes and sizes!

The multiple Gr1 placed Safe Harbour has banked over R2,5 million to date and is a valuable future broodmare prospect as she stands. And to confirm she was no flash in the pan, the 2015 Lanzerac RTR Cup winner Budapest happen to cost slightly less, at just R160 000.

There is thus lifechanging value to be found as the Cape Ready To Run Sale, presented by Lanzerac Hotel & Spa, enters its sixth renewal.

The efficient concept with potential massive rewards has long been embraced by the market.

They gallop.

You watch.

They enter the ring.

You bid.

They race.

You win.

Simple!

A varied and high quality catalogue awaits prospective buyers at the revamped Durbanville, with all of our star producers represented – as well as a support show of international flavour.

Fort WoodFort Wood (Sadler’s Wells – Fall Aspen) – end of an era

The sale marks the last opportunity to acquire a Fort Wood. The champion sire, champion broodmare sire and sire of the world-class Dynasty, has a filly (#119) out of a six time stakes winning daughter of Western Winter.

Our now deceased champion sire of 2yo’s Captain Al was in the news a fortnight ago with his dual feature winners Tap O’ Noth and Snowdance, and he has eleven lots on offer, including a filly (# 52) bred on the same cross as Gr1 winners Captain America and new sire William Longsword. She is out of a four time winning sister to Gr1 winner Heir Apparent, and to the Gr3 winning dam of Gr1 Majorca Stakes winner Nightingale.

The top-class Dynasty, sire of champions Beach Beauty, Bela-Bela, Legislate, Futura, Irish Flame and last season’s champions Just Sensual and Lady In Black, has five on the sale. They are all typically select options but the pick could be the regally bred colt (#5). He is a close relative of champion and multiple Gr1 winner Bela-Bela, out of Captain Al’s champion daughter and triple Gr1 winner All Is Secret –an own sister to Gr1 winning 2yo The Secret Is Out. Her third dam is Broodmare Of The Year Mystic Spring, and this is also the family of 2000 Guineas hero Mystiko . How’s that for a possible sales-topper!

And when speaking of sales-toppers, look no further than dual Champion Sire of 20 individual Gr1 winners including four July winners, Silvano, who has five on offer. His quintet includes a three parts-brother (#51)to champion July winning sire Bold Silvano, and Gr3 winner Silvan Star. This fellow’s dame is a six-time winning daughter of seven times champion sire Jet Master.

If that doesn’t get the juices flowing, Trippi, Var and What A Winter add sparkle to this eclectic cocktail.

If local isn’t lekker in your book, there is an opportunity to bid on offspring of US champion and Gr1 Preakness Stakes winner Bernardini, Galileo’s 2000 Guineas winning grandson Dawn Approach and even Sunday Silence’s record breaking son Keep The Faith.

And if horses for courses is your game, have a dip on the multiple Gr1 winning son of 2yo champion Johannesburg, Turffontein, a sire of graded winners Fontiton and Fontein Ruby. His daughter (#46) is a half-sister to 2 winners and is out of a daughter of champion sire/broodmare sire Encosta De Lago.
