CTS April Yearling Sale 2018

Chalkboard

April became one of the hottest months of the year for breeders when Cape Thoroughbred Sales made the move to combine their CTS March and Emperors Palace Select Sales into a single two-day event.

The result of consulting stakeholders and considering the calendar and other factors have seen the rostering of what is hoped will be the right window of opportunity.

April Yearling Sale 2018

Thursday, 12 April @ 17h30

Select session:  117 lots

Friday, 13 April @ 11h00

Session 2: 205 lots
Session 3: 21 lots

343 Yearlings

represented by

53 Sires

Come under the hammer

Cape Thoroughbred Sales March Yearling Sales

A new window of opportunity

With the National Yearling Sale in Johannesburg just eleven days later, buyers are faced with an abundance of choices – 869 yearlings going under the hammer in the space of a fortnight!

The brand new CTS April Yearling Sale at Durbanville starts with an exciting select session at 17h30 on Thursday 12 April and continues on, a hopefully lucky for some, Friday 13 April at 11h00.

With breeders already under the whip for some time, there will be hope that the renewed sense of positivity prevailing on the back of the recent changes in our political landscape, will translate to an upturn – and a knock-on boost in the strained micro economy of our sales environment.

CTS Graduates are eligible for the CTS Millions comprising 2 races

CTS Spring 1200m
CTS Mile 1600m

both with a stake of R5 million

to be run in Cape Town

in January 2020

 

Think Positive!

Past CTS graduate Janoobi powered home in the Zabeel Mile at Meydan a few weeks ago. The 4yo Hong Kong Classic Cup winner Singapore Sling cost R225 000 here as a yearling, and has earned over R15 million and counting – chasing Ping Hai Star home in the Hong Kong Derby last month at his latest start.

These are some of the stars to pin our dreams on and who knows what magic lies in the pages of the upgraded April Yearling Sale catalogue – which boasts a 33% increase, growing from 257 lots in the March 2017 pages, to 343 in the bulkier 2018 book.

The key could be the diversity offered in the strength of numbers.

From the proven stars Dynasty, Silvano and Trippi, to Redoute’s Choice son Time Thief, who coincidentally celebrated his first Gr1 winner just two weeks ago in Australia, there is a horse for every taste and pocket.

There are yearlings by top class international stallions Exchange Rate and Rock Of Gibraltar, while Epsom Derby winner, Camelot is also represented. Sires with their first local crop include champion sprinter Captain Of All, Flower Alley, Kingsbarns, Linngari, Soft Falling Rain, Vercingetorix and Wylie Hall.

A quartet of some of the last of the legendary deceased champion Captain Al add to an eclectic mix.

All the proven vendors are there – and the graduate honour roll makes for happy reading – especially if you made that winning bid!

The likes of 2016 graduate Dutch Philip, winner of the valuable CTS 1200.

Dutch Philip – top class son of What A Winter

Inaugural CTS Million Dollar victor Illuminator, a R180 000 purchase in 2014 who banked over R8 million.

Pick of the Bunch – from the 2015 Breeders Handbook

CAPTAIN OF ALL

Captain Of All

Captain Of All

A Klawervlei farm-sale graduate, Captain Of All won 7 races from 1000 to 1200m. A Gr1 placed Gr1 Gold Medallion winner at 2, he won Gr1 Tsogo Sun Sprint and Gr1 Mercury Sprint as a 4yo, the year in which he was voted Equus Champion Sprinter. With his MR 126 he is the highest rated offspring of his sire Captain Al.

Captain Of All started his stud career at Klawervlei, his 2015 fee published as ‘on application’ (it was R10.000 in 2017).

As possibly significant pedigree elements, Breeders Handbook pinpoints what can loosely be termed Lady Juror kin-links (as in Court Martial, Tudor Minstrel, etc), as well as Buckpasser elements (as in Northern Guest, National Assembly, Seattle Slew/Argosy, Dancing Champ, etc), and Hyperion carriers from the best offspring of Captain Of All’s sire Captain Al (notably dam of Fort Wood, grandam of Badger Land).

Ten of the yearlings on offer make appeal of some sorts in terms of pedigree elements:

#5 half sister to 2 winners; the dam’s pedigree contains multiple kin-links to Captain Of Al’s significant elements (Birch Bros)

#37 half brother to 3 winners including stakes winner Bursary; third dam Kit Kat contains all that’s needed for solid kin-links to the stallion (Sorrento Stud)

#39 third foal, half brother to a winner; very nicely kin-bred, with Captain Al’s Beylic, Captain Of Al’s Casket both going to the bottom female line. One to note. (Winterbach Stud)

#113 colt, first foal of Western Winter mare; kin-links are provided by Western Winter and third damsire Northern Guest (Klawervlei)

#203 third foal; half brother to a winner; grandam provides kin-links fro her sire Elliodor and second damsire Lost Chord (Connemara Stud)

#215 colt out of half sister to Gr3 Thekkady; grandam Verve Cliquot provides the kin-links: she’s by Northern Guest out of a mare by Harry Hotspur (La Berg Stud)

#263 colt, second foal of unraced Horse Chestnut mare; dam contributes kinlinks from Horse Chestnut (Fort Wood) and her dam Maggie (Buckpasser, Thatching, Golden Thatch) (La Berg Stud)

#276 filly, third foal; female line is the one of Welsh Harmony (best known as damsire of National Emblem); kin-links to Buckpasser from damsire Domedriver, and to the Lady Juror elements in the dam’s bottom line (Stone Hill Stud)

#279 colt, first foal of winning Jet Master mare; the grandam contributes a pair of kin-linked daughters of Buckpasser (dams of Seeking The Gold and Northern Guest) (Dr Ian Heyns)

#319 half sister to four multiple winners; dam (by Sportsworld, same grandam as Al Mufti) contributes Buckpasser from Danehill (who is relevant in this pedigree in the context of Gr1 Dane Julia) (Hemel ‘n Aarde)

Pick of the Bunch – from the 2015 Breeders Handbook

FLOWER ALLEY

Wilgerbosdrift's Flower Alley

Flower Alley

A $165.000 Keeneland yearling in 2004, Flower Alley won five races from a mile to 2000m on dirt in USA. He won the G1 Travers S. and ran second in the G1 Breeder’s Cup Classic. He was the second highest rated 3yo in USA, with Timeform 127.

At stud he sired G1 Kentucky Derby winner and US Champion 3yo colt I’ll Have Another in his second crop, as well as champion filly My Wandy’s Girl (subsequently sold as broodmare prospect for $700.000).

Flower Alley, a son of US Champion Sire and sire-of-sires Distorted Humor, started his South African stud career at Wilgerbosdrift. His 2015 fee was R80.000 (with a published ‘book full’).

Breeders Handbook makes the observation that the dam of Flower Alley, Princess Olivia, is by Lycius whose dam is a daughter of Lyphard. Flower Alley’s fourth dam is a daughter of Goofed, the dam of Lyphard. This gives Princess Olivia a 4×4 double of Goofed, and a possible source of breeding excellence. She is dam of stakes winners in Japan, rated TFR 120/123, who are by Deep Impact, whose dam Wind In Her Hair is a daughter of Alzao, by Lyphard. The pedigree of Wind In Her Hair makes her very close kin to Lyphard’s son Elliodor, whose dam is full sister to Busted, the damsire of Wind In Her Hair. Deep Impact is from the same female line as Right Approach, who has several daughters out of Elliodor mares.

The grandam of Distorted Humor, Sweetest Chant, is very close kin to Bold Reason and Never Bend. A large proportion of Distorted Humor’s G1 winners have Sadler’s Wells (as sire of dam, grandam, or damsire). Sadler’s Wells’ line of Bold Reason appears significant in his best offspring. Lalun, the dam of Bold Reason and Never Bend, is a noted La Troienne carrier, and La Troienne is invariably present in multiples in Distorted Humor’s best offspring. This apparent affinity for La Troienne (in Flower Alley present through Sadler’s Wells’ damsire Bold Reason) is emphasised in I’ll Have Another whose dam has a double of Bold Reason’s half brother Never Bend and whose damsire Pleasant Tap is from the La Troienne female line. The close resemblance of performance at stud of Distorted Humor and Trippi makes the latter’s daughters interesting options for Flower Alley.

There are five yearlings on offer with notable pedigrees based on the above:

#78 half sister to a winner, their dam a half sister to champion Kildonan – the dam is by Right Approach who fits the kin-suggestions (Klawervlei)

#95 half sister to 2 winners in UK; grandam Hiwayaati (by Shadeed, the damsire also of Right Approach) and third dam Alathea both kin-link to Flower Alley’s grandam and third dam. Very much the right stuff! (Klawervlei)

#97 half brother to seven winners including Gr1 placed Gr2 winner Maybe Yes (by Tiger Ridge); the winning dam is by Model Man (Elliodor), the grandam is by Northern Guest who brings Buckpasser (La T. female line) (Narrow Creek)

#103 half sister to 3 winners, out of a winning dam by Fort Wood (Sadler’s Wells) (Dr Ian Heyns)

KINGSBARNS

Kingsbarns

Unbeaten in 2 starts as a 2yo having won the Gr1 Racing Post Trophy, Kingsbarns was quoted at 8/1 for the next year’s 2000 Guineas and Derby, rated Timeform 120p.  Things didn’t work out, as he raced only twice at 3 (with a Gr1 3rd and Timeform rating 121p).

Kingsbarns entered stud at Coolmore in Ireland in 2015, having fertility issues. He was sent to South Africa later that year, where the problem persisted.

The female line focus, according to Breeders Handbook, is on 5th dam Agar’s Plough (Irish Oaks, TFR 122) and 4th dam Mesopotamia (Champion Irish 2yo, TFR 126). Both are closely kinbred, both carry elements making them close kin to notable others. Agar’s Plough is close kin to the mares Special, Darrica and Bride Elect.

Two yearlings catch the eye:

#238 second foal, half brother to a multiple winner; dam is kinbred through the bottom line of Captain Al and the mare’s bottom line, both in turn connection to Agar’s Plough. Good stuff. (Sorrento Stud)

#248 filly, first foal of Go Deputy mare. The kin-link is through Agar’s Plough going to Helenita – her sire True Swallow’s grandam Four Poster is half sister to Agar’s Plough, and Helenita is kinbred through Four Poster and her 3rd dam New Dawn. Interesting. (Dr Ian Heyns)

SOFT FALLING RAIN

Soft Falling Rain

A R350.000 yearling in 2011, Soft Falling Rain won 7 races from 1000m to 1600m in South Africa, UK, and Dubai. He was unbeaten in 4 starts as a 2yo and voted Champion 2yo colt. He was Timeform’s sixth highest rated older horse on 2013, rated 129.

Soft Falling Rain started his stud career at Wilgerbosdrift, his 2015 fee R40.000.

Soft Falling Rain is from the US female line of multiple US Champion sire Smart Strike, prompting Breeders Handbook to suggest that kin-breeding to members of that female line might be beneficial. The family is represented in South Africa through Gr1 producing sires Strike Smartly (full brother to Smart Strike, by Mr Prospector), Sail From Seattle (Gone West) and Gr1 winner and sire Jackson. The latter is by Fort Wood’s son Dynasty, while Strike Smartly has stakes winners from mares by Fort Wood.

Soft Falling Rain’s sire National Assembly is out of a mare by Buckpasser, a noted influence also in Danehill (who is close kin to National Assembly), Al Mufti, Northern Guest, and Soft Falling Rain’s 2nd damsire Seattle Slew.

There are four yearlings on offer who show relevant kin-links.

#30 filly, first foal of winning full sister to Gr1 Guineas winner Solo Traveller; the dam is by Western Winter, who provides kin-links (Gone West, Vice Regent) (Klawervlei)

#44 half sister to 3 winners including stakes winner Star Jet; the Argentinian bred dam is by Mutakddim, who brings Seattle Slew and a double of Buckpasser (Winterbach Stud)

#69 half brother to a winner out of a mare by Victory Moon, who contributes Buckpasser (from Lassie Dear) and Nijinsky (from Dancing Champ) (Dr Ian Heyns)

#257 third foal; half sister to 2 winners, out of a mare by Fort Wood who provides kin-links (Daytona Stud)

Pick of the Bunch – from the 2015 Breeders Handbook

VERCINGETORIX

Vercingetorix

A R1.4m yearling in 2011, Vercingetorix raced in SA, Dubai and Hong Kong, winning seven times from a mile to 2000m. Undefeated in South Africa, he was voted Equus Champion 3yo Colt. Timeform rated him 129 in 2015, the year a sesamoidal ligament injury ended his racing career in Dubai. He remains Silvano’s highest rated son.

Vercingetorix started his stud career at Maine Chance, his 2015 fee R40.000.

As possibly significant pedigree elements, Breeders Handbook pinpoints lines which kin-link to Vercingetorix’ 3rd dam Scarteen (by Sweet Song) and 4th dam Noble Vixen (by Royal Pardon). This loosely translates as Lady Juror-clan elements.

A second possible angle highlighted is the one of Buckpasser-links.

There are ten yearlings on offer with apparent Breeders Handbook kin-breeding highlights:

#59 colt, first foal of stakes placed 3-time wiining dam by Captain Al; a variety of kin-links comes from the dam, notably through Lassie Dear, Danehill and the remote bottom female line. Interesting pedigree (Klawervlei)

#72 colt, third foal of his dam who is by National Emblem, making for a solid kin-link to Vercingetorix’ dam and a 3×3 National Assembly double (Stone Hill Stud)

#85 second foal of unraced Galileo mare, who provides a double Buckpasser (one from Danehill, who is close kin to National Assembly) plus a link to the bottom female line (Abernant) (Klawervlei)

#144 filly, third foal of mare by Captain Al (leading to Buckpasser and female line) (Klawervlei)

#146 half sister to a winner, out of unraced Sadler’s Wells mare who provides multiple Lalun and a Buckpasser (Sorrento Stud)

#159 second foal, half sister to a winner, out of a mare by Captain Al (leading to Buckpasser and female line) (Birch Bros)

#200 colt, first foal of winning Jet Master mare; the grandam is by Northern Guest out of a Secret Prospector mare, giving a double Buckpasser (Connemara Stud)

#222 colt, second foal of 3-time winning mare by National Assembly, making for a 3×2 double to that stallion. The grandam is by Touch Gold, who dam is by Buckpasser, making for a double in the yearling’s dam. (Klipdrif Stud)

#265 half sister to a winner, out of 3-time winning Captain Al mare whose dam is by National Assembly (making for a 3×3 double to that stallion); there are additional kin-links with the dam, through Golden Thatch, Royal Pardon. Good stuff (Dr Ian Heyns)

#297 half sister to a winner out of 4-time winning mare by Al Mufti (gives Buckpasser), the dam from the same female line as Vercingetorix (Scarteen the common ancestor) and very close kin to Vercingetorix’ dam. The grandam is by National Assembly, making for a 3×3 double to that stallion (giving Buckpasser). This is a cracker in kin-breeding language. (The Alchemy)

Pick of the Bunch – from the 2015 Breeders Handbook

WYLIE HALL

Wylie Hall

An A$205.000 yearling, Wylie Hall won six races from 1400m to 2450m, at three to five. His wins included the Gr1 SA Derby and Gr1 Champion’s Challenge. He was first past the post in the Gr1 Vodacom July, only to be placed second following an objection. He rated MR 119.

Wylie Hall started his stud career at Cheveley Stud, his 2015 fee set at R20.000.

Breeders Handbook suggests that suitable lines for Wylie Hall could include kin-links to the kin-breeding from his sire Redoute’s Choice. This leads to Buckpasser (notably Northern Guest, National Assembly, Lassie Dear), Nijinsky (notably Dancing Champ), Danehill (Caesour, Requiem). Given Wylie Hall’s Australian female line, elements from Marauding combined with the female line could be interesting, leading to Jallad and more generally multiple Hyperion (notably Flower Bowl), Alycidon, Aureole, Donatello. Danzig might count, in the context of National Assembly, Maroof.

There are four yearlings on offer who catch the eye given Breeders Handbook’s views.

#88 colt, first foal of 2-time winning Encosta de Lago mare who brings two lines of Lalun (Fairy King, Riverman) and one of Aureole (Normandy Stud)

#98 half sister to 2 winners; dam, half sister to Tatler, brings lines of Nijinsky (Silvano) and Aurole (Contraband) (Normandy Stud)

#201 half sister to a winner, out of winning full sister to Gr1 Guineas winner Solo Traveller, whose dam is by Jallad out of Strawberry Lane. The latter is by Centaine (Vain, Todman, Helios) out of a mare by Whiskey Road (Nijinsky, Flower Bowl). A pedigree full of opportunity in kin-breeding terms. Good stuff. (Summerhill)

#258 filly, first foal of Australian-bred mare by Bernardini (AP Indy); the yearling is kinbred through Wylie Hall’s 3rd dam and the mare’s 3rd dam (both by Sovereign Edition), with added Buckpasser from the dam (AP Indy, Try My Best who is same female line as Redoute’s Choice). Good mating in kin-breeding terms. (Normandy Stud)
