The 2020 Cape Yearling Sale, set to take place at the lavish Mistico Equestrian Centre just outside of Paarl on 28 February, has drawn a deep and competitive looking catalogue of yearlings from some of the country’s top breeders.

This sale has consistently produced high-class graded stakes winners, with its recent alumni including the very impressive recent Gr3 Lebelo Sprint winner Mr Flood (a R50 000 buy from the 2017 Cape Sale), and fellow graded stakes winners Doosra, Elusive Heart, Final Judgement, Hack Green, Princess Peach, and Drakenstein Stud’s exciting young stallion Gold Standard.

Recent winner Coral Bay, a winner of both the Kenilworth Fillies Nursery and Irridescence Stakes at two, was a R60 000 buy from the 2017 Cape Yearling Sale.

    It is very very interesting that the SA top breeder KLAWERVLEI STUD is MIA as a vendor from this sale.
    It is said that the major shareholders of the CAPE THOROUGHBRED SALES COMPANY are the same major shareholders of KLAWERVLEI STUD. Does anyone care to give us the story.

  2. Echo95 says:

    Not at all the case. Klawervlei Stud supported the 2019 BSA National Yearling Sale, 2019 BSA Cape Yearling Sale and the 2019 KZN Yearling Sale.

  3. Oscar Foulkes says:

    The sale calendar is a tricky one to negotiate. From experience, both of the options between CPYS and National Sale have been tough markets in recent years (whether CTS or BSA).

    There is definitely a market for top horses on CPYS and National Sale, but anything that’s slightly off-target is going to get punished. So, there’s a big need for placing those horses in a more sympathetic environment (and let’s not forget that we sold Mother Russia at a Book 2 sale).

    We’re sending a small draft to this year’s Mistico sale in the hope that the new sales race will give the sale bit of a boost.

    With the market being as thin as it is these days, making the right choices is critical. Getting it wrong isn’t just a case of missing out on income – there are also substantial costs involved:
    – sales preparation
    – entry and acceptance fees
    – commission on reserve price
    – transport (potentially a return journey)
    – vendor’s premium for sales race
    – advertising
