Cape Yearling Sale - a dream for every pocket

It’s not new – the Cape Yearling Sale is one of South Africa’s best value for money auctions, and is a regular and consistent nursery of top-class athletes – many of whom are bought for bargain basement prices.

Seen in 2018…. (Pic – Candiese Marnewick)

So whether you’re in search of a Met or July winner, or looking to find a rewarding pinhooking opportunity, here’s a real chance at both – and more at one of the most convivial venues to spend a Sunday in the countryside, while dreaming a dream…

An industry veteran told the Sporting Post after last year’s sale that ‘if trainers of all shapes and sizes couldn’t find a horse of all shapes and sizes at this sale, then they are never going to find a horse!’
That’s fighting straight talk from a champion breeder who has been round the ring a few times – but it succinctly sums up the spectrum of what’s on offer.

Seen in 2018…. (Pic – Candiese Marnewick)

Top names like legendary champion Pocket Power, Hammie’s Hooker, Mother Russia, O Caesour, Sarabande, Silver Arc, Sparkling Gem, Royal Bencher and Villandry will be familiar to all readers, while last month’s Wolf Power 1600 winner Doosra and the likes of Final Judgement, Green Pepper, Hack Green, Princess Peach and international traveller Surcharge, will conjure up aspirations of hope and excitement.

A host of our top producing breeders are represented with class stallions such as Duke Of Marmalade, Elusive Fort, Gimmethegreenlight, Judpot, Soft Falling Rain, Twice Over, Vercingetorix and What A Winter all represented at the one day sale.
